Washington Convention Center
The 70th International Astronautical Congress celebrated both the victories past and exciting future of space exploration; commemorating the fifty-year anniversary of the first lunar landing. For the 6,000+ astronauts, scientists and space enthusiasts attending this several day conference, it was important to have a dedicated area within the exhibit hall to grab a cup of coffee and a moment’s reprieve.
Our team curated an ultra-modern charging lounge backed by an LED galaxy backdrop to bring this otherworldly tone to life. The focal point was a giant custom cut-out of Neil Armstrong’s most famous quote. This dimensional foam fabrication we designed served as a popular selfie opportunity for guests, as they imagined themselves in Armstrong’s moon foot print back in 1969.
Many years worth of experience and skills building custom exhibit structures was utilized in the branded coffee kiosk facade that kept registrants going throughout three days of general sessions.
We know the Washington Convention Center inside and out, so our client was confident that we could transform this massive space in all the ways they had envisioned.
