GMP on the Road in Las Vegas

The GMP team recently hit the road to Las Vegas to produce a major year-end conference for one of our clients. The 3-day program was held at the Bellagio Hotel and Resort and featured several general sessions geared toward the organization's conference theme of "Best in Class". Our clients included California-based "Blueink Writing" and "Travel Dynamic Group". GMP team members Gary Musick, Jonathan Yeaworth, Chris Lyle, Jacob Driver, Rob Dicken, Brandon Thomas, Sean Yeaworth and Johnny Jones provided direction, audio, lighting, and video support for the main tent events. This was our second time to work with this client and the program came off without a hitch! Congratulations to the entire creative and production team for another successful road show!

The General Session staging incorporated three AV screens for graphics, video rolls, and live image magnification. Special lighting effects were used to complement the style of the conference logo.

The opening night reception featured a Cirque theme and incorporated a number of amazing acts from the Las Vegas area. Aerialists, stilt walkers, contortionists, and strength and balancing acts performed throughout the evening. It was very cool!

GMP provided decor throughout the reception that included 17 private cabana seating areas. Each cabana was themed in a different color and included pillows and candy-based centerpieces in matching hues.

W.L. HAILEY & Co. Christmas Party

GMP Producer, Brandon Scott Thomas produced a company Christmas party for W.L. Hailey over the weekend. Although the weather outside was frightening, the decor inside was so inviting! GMP partnered with Sheryl Thomas from Sheryl Thomas Florals to transform the DUREGO event space into a winter wonderland. The delicious catering was provided by Mere Bulles. The band was the "Party Cats" and they did a great job too.

Special thanks to Terry Beeler and Melissa Davis from W.L. Hailey for being so great to work with!

Here are a few pics from the night:

even the restrooms looked beautiful!

The band who was hired is called the Party Cats. They were really amazing!


GMP Producer, Brandon Scott Thomas, captured these images last week during the television taping of "Broken". Last year, Darrell Vanzant asked Brandon to create the scenery for a tour he was doing of a musical based on a dramatization by the Young Life Organization. Later this year TBN expressed interest in taping it for television so Darrell called Brandon and we revised the set for TV.

The taping went well and it should air sometime toward the end of January. Kudos to the cast and crew and to Darrell for all his hard work. Check out his link for more information on this project and the cast. Click HERE for details.

Special thanks to Keith Brogdon for his design work on the scoreboard.
