Tri-Marq was honored to be part of history, celebrating 100 years of Marquette Men’s Basketball. Tri-Marq partnered with Marquette Athletics to produce this special Centennial Hoopla event at the BMO Harris Bradley Center with nearly 1,000 guests. Marquette recruited 3 former coaches and 125 former players that were in attendance to greet guests on and off the stage.
To make this unique evening unforgettable, Tri-Marq designed the event using two 24′ x 13.6′ screens flanking the stage, along with 7 LED columns that were 3 feet by 9 feet high and placed center stage, creating a backdrop for the gala.
We took guests through 100 years, era by era, through videos playing on the large screens with complimentary imagery projected on the LED columns. Select former players and 3 coaches joined on stage telling their stories of the past through Q&A sessions moderated by ESPN Analyst Jay Bilas. These panelists entered the stage from backstage through the LED columns.
We added 330 feet of white drapery that was elegantly hung around the arena floor. Then, we designed content using video and photographs that projected onto the drape creating an intimate space for everyone.
Tri-Marq was pleased to accept the challenge from Marquette. Together the team’s success was applauded with rousing standing ovations several times throughout the evening, proving that 100 years was not just a bunch of hoopla.
