Momentum Worldwide NY had us come in to assist as Producer along with technical direction and production management for a special American Express / Chicago Bulls / Garrett Popcorn outdoor event. Daly Plaza in the heart of the Chicago business district was the event site of choice. Setup the evening prior was a challenge with torrential downpours and high wind gusts. A great, experienced team makes all the difference. American Express cardholders and the general public were allowed to enter at no charge. The event was calibrated to highlight small businesses in the Chicago business district. The event included personal appearances by Chicago Bulls legends Horace Grant and Tony Kukoc, championship rings and trophies for photo ops and exclusive Garrett Popcorn integrations, set in a festive Happy Hour feel environment with games, music, small businesses, food trucks, and beer/wine tastings. Special thanks to the entire Momentum Worldwide team in NYC - Jillian Tapper, Dooner Smith and James Gavigan
