Yes, We CANstruction

Chicago — What do you get when you bring professionals from the design and construction industry together with thousands of cans and a good cause?

The most unique food charity event in the world – CANstruction.

CANstruction held its sixth annual design competition where contestants built giant, intricate structures out of canned food that were all donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. AVI-SPL’s Chicago office took part in this worthy cause helping the organization to raise more than 94,436 cans!

The AVI-SPL/Harley Ellis Deveraux team built a giant grocery bag out of 3,152 canned foods. Our Hole Foods-themed bag was “torn” with food spilling out the side.

AVI-SPL’s contribution to the cause went beyond creating an exhibit. Besides the team’s $3,800 fundraised donation, our Chicago office developed the technology that CANstruction used to capture the votes for the crowd favorite. This AMX MXT-1900-PAN touch panel allowed visitors to view images, uncover details about each display and submit their names and email addresses to vote for their favorite.

Check out this video to see the touch panel in action!

Once all the votes were cast, CANstruction hosted the A-can-emy Awards Gala to recognize the year’s most creative structures. AVI-SPL’s sculpture was acknowledged by the event’s biggest sponsor, taking home the Whole Foods Market Chicago Award.

Congratulations Team AVI-SPL! We’re so proud of everyone’s hard work for this wonderful cause!

 

AVI-SPL Launches Pinterest Account

AVI-SPL is launching a new way for users to connect with the company through its very own Pinterest account. With over 104 million users, Pinterest is not only considered the fastest growing social site, but, according to Experian Hitwise, it’s also just behind Facebook and Twitter in popularity.

From corporate boardrooms to churches to K-12 classrooms, AVI-SPL has done it all. With Pinterest, our boards provide a visual portfolio of projects we have taken on in the past. The pins will link visitors to other blog posts, articles AVI-SPL has been featured in and project profiles on the company’s website. We hope they offer some “pinspiration” for your organization’s future AV transformation.

The account will also touch on some of AVI-SPL’s partners and provide some insight to life around the office. We encourage you to follow our boards on Pinterest to discover the latest AVI-SPL and AV news.
