Cornell Tech 10th Anniversary Celebration
We were over the moon when Cornell Tech called us back to campus after helping them celebrate both the groundbreaking and opening ceremonies for their new high-tech research and education facility on Roosevelt Island. Now, they were looking to produce a stellar sequel that would memorialize the occasion and mark the next phase of the school’s expansion. We got to work engineering an impactful experience inside the newly built Verizon Center.
Attendees enjoyed a local jazz quintet while sipping champagne and nibbling on passed hors d’oeuvres under the post-modern architectural ceiling. Striking dimensional scenic set the stage for a spectacular 10-year retrospective video that played on screens throughout the space. Key figures who have contributed to the school’s success took to the stage including former Mayor Mike Bloomberg, current Mayor Eric Adams, President Martha E. Pollack, Greg Morrisett, founding Cornell Tech Dean Dan Huttenlocher, and former Technion President Peretz Lavie. The audience was enraptured by a dramatic dance performance entitled Inovación Monumental.
A project developed by Ballet Hispánico in collaboration with Cornell Tech researchers which perfectly melded art and technology. Once again, we were able to help Cornell Tech celebrate their accomplishments on their 10th anniversary through our expert technical direction, content production, stellar scenic design, graphic design, project management logistics, video production, and our sensational show-producing skills.
Another milestone was marked in Cornell Tech’s rise, as they continue bridging the gap between academia and industry, helping to make New York City’s startup ecosystem the second most valuable in the world.
