Vario was selected to provide A/V and Production for the MPI Orange County and MPI San Diego chapter’s South Coast EdCon, a joint educational conference and expo bringing together top quality education, creative insights and facilitated networking to maximize meeting industry professional’s time and investment.

The 2018 EdCon was held at the fabulous Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa and involved 30+ vendor partners, 250 attendees, two days of education and networking. South Coast MPI Chapters’ — MPI Orange County and MPI San Diego — dual chapter collaboration provides attendees with direct quality exposure to more than 600 MPI chapter members, in addition to the recognition among MPI’s global network. MPIOC and MPISD together represent purchasing power greater than $1.1 billion and more than 1000 suppliers and planners in the industry.

When a group of meeting planners and industry professionals are tasked with producing a conference, the expectation levels are through the roof, and Vario was proud to be able to deliver an impactful general session statement, as well as breakout room support and digital signage throughout the venue. Because we were involved during the pre-production phase, our know-how and insight was leveraged to maximize the production value and attendee experience through the insightful usage of the space.

One example of this was the decision by our experience designers to turn the General Session room on its side, allowing for a 15’x30′ seamless screen, versus the more traditional, stage-left and stage-right screens. Having an ultra-widescreen format allowed for unique picture-in-picture (PIP) opportunities and multiple layered content to be displayed simultaneously. To accomplish this setup we utilized dual 14,000 lumen projectors and a custom built media server.

The success of the program was paramount, especially considering the attendee demographic. Vario is proud to have supported this conference and be an integral part of our client’s satisfaction.

What They Thought

“My second year working with Vario on our annual spring conference and each time it gets better, knocking it out of the park. The team gives all they have in making the vision come to life. Working with Vario from the pre-production, where they make sure all the details are covered, to program day, where the team’s experience, pride in work and passion shines in creating an incredible attendee experience is what makes me a Vario client. As a meeting planner, Vario puts my mind at ease knowing I am working with a top-notch planning and production company and the A/V and production in my program are in the best hands. I look forward to working with the Vario team again.”
