Break Forth Canada 2013 an Event to Remember
2013 Break Forth attendees were once again treated to a great experience. Allstar Show Industries provided sound video and lighting for 53 class and workshop rooms as well as the main concert stage. Located in seven locations spread throughout downtown Edmonton, venues were the Shaw Conference Centre, Weston Hotel, Alberta College, Sutton Place, McDougal Church, The Crowne Plaza Chateau Lacombe and Stanley A. Milner Library. Allstar crew managed the set-up with the help of Break Forth volunteers in a single day.
Halls A, B and C of the Shaw Conference Centre were set-up to provide sound video and lighting for three individual rooms serving classes / lectures and then opened up and combined for concerts. A concert highlight was an amazing show by Amy Grant. Read a review by Mike Ross of Amy’s concert at gigcity.ca.
Josh Schultz commented, “Great job so far you guys! Loving the sound coming out of your systems."
Barry Moss commented, “I loved the graphics on the LED walls, even if it did make photography a bit more difficult with back lighting.”
Arlen Salte (Executive Director, Break
Forth Ministries) commented, “Elsa and I would like to thank you from the
bottom of our hearts for the superb job you did at Break Forth Canada
You and your team made this the best year ever. The compliments on the quality of sound, lighting and the killer LED wall seem non-stop.
You are a gift to us and to the thousands of people who were profoundly blessed and encouraged. Please pass on our thanks to everyone at Allstar who did such an exceptional job.”
Classes, workshops and concerts weren’t the only thing at Break Forth. The trade show floor was a buzz of activity as attendees visited the booths gathering information from exhibiters. Allstar staff manned two 10’ x 20’ booths displaying sound, video, lighting and staging products. Allstar partners Panasonic and Sennheiser were also in attendance with booths and product specialists.
