HOSA–Future Health Professionals has partnered with Cybis since 2007 for the production of their annual International Leadership Conference. This long standing relationship has established a great deal of trust, which allows Team Cybis to test all creative limits of event production. When the audience comes from so many countries across the globe, Cybis steps up to the challenge of exceeding their expectations.
This year, Cybis built a stage inspired by the “in-the-round” concept. A stage in-the round is exactly how it sounds: it is placed in the center of a space and the audience is placed 360 degrees surrounding the stage. However, in order to accommodate a centrally-located VIP room and winner staging area, Cybis created more of a “north and south” stage. The audience had the same view of the stage from both sides, so the conference was able to seat half of the attendees on one side and half on the other.
After two years of virtual conferences, Cybis’ goal was to create a sense of connection as people came back together. With a creative LED archway, HOSA International Officers and special speakers were able to switch back and forth to either side of the stage and address both sides of the audience. It was important to not make either side feel as if the show was being directed more toward one than the other. Projection screens provided a look into what was happening from all angles, on all sides, at any moment, immersing the audience into every element of the show regardless of which side the action was actually on.
Creative opportunities like this are the highlight of producing live events. Being able to create an amazing experience for over 10,000 people inspires Team Cybis to continue supporting events and organizations that are also doing creative and unthinkable things. With a strong dedication to inspiring audiences, Cybis is committed to going above and beyond whenever possible to create the experience of a lifetime for leaders of all ages!
