U of I Banquet 11.14.08 Colonnade’s Club

The U of I Development Banquet was held at Memorial Stadium for some of the top donors who helped to fund the stadium’s renovations. The new stadium looks great. The banquet was held in the Colonnade’s Club which is on the 3rd floor, and they asked us to provide some blue uplighting to go along with their orange and blue theme. It is a very long room (the length of the entire football field), and there are brick columns all down the middle. We lit the columns, and also did some lighting on the sides of the two bars and along the back wall. It’s a really neat room that looks right out onto the field.

They also asked us to set up our black backdrop behind the podium. The backdrop also looks great behind head tables. Here is a before and after of how much of a difference it makes..

We have a few clients who will be having their wedding receptions in the Colonnade’s Club next year, and we look forward to doing more work here.
