In addition to the main presentations, the Lazaridis Atrium served as a vibrant space for entertainment and cultural performances. 

The massive Atrium space provided a challenge for our sound technicians, due to the high ceilings and concrete structure. Our AV technicians seamlessly managed audiovisual elements, ensuring that each musical performance resonated with energy and enthusiasm.

Pynx Pro transformed this area into a dynamic stage, complete with RCF line array speakers, subwoofers, and a custom set design.

Our team made sure the sound system was strategically positioned and configured to avoid any interference with concurrent presentations happening throughout the building.
