United Visual provides Video, Sound and Lighting services for
Karl's Event Rental Open House Event.
United Visual recently provided sound, video and lighting for Karl's Event Rental's Studio 7000 Premiere Opening for event professionals. The event took place on November 18th at Karl's 53,000 square foot facility in Oak Creek, WI just south of Milwaukee. Event professionals came from coast-to-coast to attend the gala event.
"Studio 7000 ... An evening for event professionals was truly a success for the hundreds of people that attended this event. Karl's Event Rental hosts a bi-annual Open House to showcase how to make your event spectacular. Over six months of planning went into creating this evening with the help of partnering businesses. United Visual truly stepped up to the plate in making this event successful from its inception. Every aspect of Studio 7000 had a touch of United Visual. They utilized their lighting and sound expertise to transform a warehouse washbay with 40' ceilings into an elegant lounge and then transform a 13,000 square foot tent structure into the "hottest" club in town. United Visual went above and beyond when working on this project. Project manager James Harris worked tirelessly to ensure that all details were complete and safety measures were met. United Visual was on site weeks before the event to coordinate the precise installation of all equipment. Karl's Event Rental looks forward to working with the dedicated, professional and friendly personnel at United Visual in the future." said Karl's Event Rental President, John Schlueter.

"It was great to be a part of this event, it gave us the opportunity to showcase almost all of our capabilities all at one venue. We transformed the Studio 7000 main event Clearspan 99' x 132' tent into a state-of-art night club, which enabled Karl's to take advantage of all aspects of the sound, lighting and video equipment. Smooth cooperation and communication between Karl's event staff and our team ensured the event ran flawlessly. United Visual also assisted in creating a high end Martini Lounge in the area of the Karl's warehouse normally used to hang, power wash and dry their massive tent fabrics. The lounge had truss and lighting overhead and a 10' x 14' rear projection screen used simply to create a warm and inviting lounge atmosphere. In addition, we captured and edited live video from the event and displayed the video throughout the event on the various screens. United Visual is committed to making every event professionally seen and heard - without our staff being seen or heard," said United Visual Rental Director, Mike Ferraro.
