“We designed this rig to be complete so it could provide big looks for the opening acts, while also complementing the floor packages brought in by the headliners,” said Tim Messina of Events United, which also supplied a “world class sound system” for the event. “As Soulfest has continued to grow over the years, Events United’s role has grown with it -- from first providing production for a few smaller stages, to this year providing full production (audio, video, lighting, and backline) for the large stages of the festival.”
Events United illuminated the stage and the entire room with 110 CHAUVET Professional fixtures. “Our goal was to have enough lights to paint the entire room floor to ceiling,” said Messina. “The room was interesting in its own right, so we wanted to incorporate its architectural features into our design to get that wow factor.”
Donald Van Slyke - Project and Operations Manager for Events United who led the designing and installing audio, video, lighting, and acoustics at Eastpoint Church, had this to say, "An installation of this magnitude typically would take us 6 weeks. The Events United team did it in a compressed 3 week timeline. How did we do it and not compromise the integrity of our work?" Van Slyke went on to say, "The training, hard work, and coordinated effort from the WHOLE Events United team, and a lot of hustling."
Over 6,000 worshippers turned out for Manchester Christian Church’s Christmas service on Friday, December 22. Despite the large crowd and the spaciousness of the modern Southern New Hampshire University Arena, those who attended the service felt a welcoming sense of engagement. This was largely due to an immersive lighting design created exclusively by the Events United team that featured over 90 fixtures and 92 LED video tiles from CHAUVET Professional.
“It starts with clear communication between the production manager and the video and lighting techs. Typically, in our case, the production manager will coordinate with the video and lighting teams to make sure their designs complement each other. This coordination starts at the beginning of our design process and goes all the way through the final rehearsal right before the show.”
Then with a flash of inspiration and some help from his CHAUVET Professional PVP X6IP LED video tiles, Messina had a creative breakthrough that ultimately led him to design Steubenville’s most dynamic and engaging stage ever. “I was looking for some inspiration so I thumbed through their marketing material once again,” he said. “Then it hit me: we could create their ‘ELEVATE’ logo with an LED wall.”
Production company Events United helps engage worshippers at Granite United Church's Warrior Conference with intense lighting, video display and design. The six-campus Granite United Church in Waterville Valley, N.H.,has never rested when it comes to spreading its message and touching lives. By 2014, its three-day Warrior Conference for men had established itself as one of the largest religious gatherings in the Northeast, but the church was looking to make the event even more relevant. With this in mind, it broke with a 16-year tradition of doing its own lighting, audio, video and staging and retained an outside production company, Events United.
LOWELL, MA – In 1975, Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio held a gathering for young worshippers. The organizers of that event could scarcely have imagined that there would one day be 40 Steubenville Youth Conferences in 11 states. Nor could they have envisioned the kind of dynamic and richly textured stage presentation that engaged thousands of young people at Steubenville East...
Manchester Christian Church took advantage of this opportunity in a unique and dramatic way recently by renting out the Verizon Wireless Arena, one of the largest event centers in New England, for a church service that the entire community was invited to attend.

Awakening young people to the power of worship and engaging their zeal and passion to fuel an active and exciting church are the goals of the Awakening Conference, a three-day event held on two successive weekends at the New Life Worship Center. Indeed, everything about this New England conference proclaims “Youth!”-- from the tender age of its founder Jordan Boyce (who was 16 when he started Awakening in 2007), to appearances bynationally-known celebrity pastors such as Rich Wilkerson Jr. (who served as clergy at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding), to the event’s free-spirited, electrifying rock festival-like energy.
The 13,000 people who came to Gunstock Mountain Resort in Gilford, New Hampshire, for the three-day SoulFest Christian music festival could count on seeing a lot of good things. The early August event included inspiring speeches and great performances by bands such as Third Day, Tenth Avenue North and For King and Country. Another unique sight attendees noticed was a differently configured video wall on stage every day.
