AARP “Goes Big” for 50th Anniversary Celebration

WASHINGTON, DC (September 2, 2008) – You just knew one of the world’s largest and most powerful member organizations would put on a massive party to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

And when more than 10,000 AARP members gather for a rally and celebration on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Thursday, no one will have to strain their eyes to get a good view. The VIP speakers, guest entertainers and celebrities will appear larger-than-life thanks to two jumbo screens set-up near the steps of the memorial. The daylight-visible LED screens – provided by GoVision LP – offer state-of-the-art video quality and high-definition widescreen resolution.

“An event this big, held outdoors in the daylight, demands the most advanced LED screens available,” said Chris Curtis, CEO of GoVision (www.jumbo.tv). “Our mobile units are ideally suited for these conditions, and will ensure that everyone will have a great view of the speakers and other on-stage activities.”

“GoVision’s flexible LED screen configurations and their extensive experience working on important events all over the U.S. make them a perfect partner to assist Alford Media Services in providing state of the art technical support to this high-profile national celebration of AARP’s 50th anniversary,” said Paul Kowzan of Alford Media Services, a full-service a/v staging company hired by AARP for the event.
