Our field representative will arrive with all the required equipment to put on your assembly (i.e. 1 large HD screen – full set up is 17 ft. high by 21 ft. wide, HD projector, sound system, microphone, etc.). All that is required from you is 3 outlets, the space, a few volunteers for setup/takedown and the audience.
