EY and CS2 add ‘showbiz glitz’ to Entrepreneur Awards Shows

AVI-SPL Creative Show Services teamed once again with Ernst & Young to recognize and celebrate the successes of southern business leaders. At the June 12th black tie gala, EY delivered its annual Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 Florida awards at the Hilton Orlando. On June 26, we did it again in Atlanta at the InterContinental Buckhead. The Southeast Program recognized entrepreneurs across Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.

For more than 15 years, producer Bill Baxter and show director Keith Lasher have worked with EY program directors and artists to create stunning, prestigious awards shows. We began with Florida and later expanded into other regional programs.

For dynamic awards shows, it is critical to apply the latest HD and show technologies to bring the programs to life through animated show themes, live house bands, stunning sets and spectacular lighting. Participants got a front-row seat as we projected more than 30 minutes of original content, profiling the achievements of the finalists from each region. Rounding out the glitz-filled evenings, audiences were treated to customized laser and music shows, making unforgettable experiences for the audiences of 500 entrepreneurs and their teams.

AVI-SPL wants to congratulate all the winners from Florida and the Southeast region for their stellar achievements.
