NBC News Democracy Plaza

Hurricane Sandy was no match for productionglue as we again transformed Rockefeller Plaza into NBC News’ Democracy Plaza. Though the storm forced a 24-hour break in installation, we activated our signature speed and ingenuity to deliver this award-winning “epicenter of election politics” on time and on budget.

Interactive guest experiences included recreations of the Oval Office and the White House Press Briefing Room as well as an “emulate an NBC News reporter” video booth. From our NBC Decision Desk broadcast sets, journalists offered full election coverage until the winner was called. Excitement pulsated throughout Election Night as we transformed the skating rink into a U.S. map revealing how each state voted – red or blue. A win with viewers!
