Timelapse Tuesday - Just before doors

So, in my tireless quest to bring the art of the time-lapse capture video clip creation to you, I present this. A slice of time in the special events industry! In this specific case, after a business meeting for a client of ours in the beauty industry, the room was then turned around in a few hours for the evening event, and then struck in about 2 and a half hours.

I do feel it necessary to shout a bit from the soap box about this however. The recent events coupled with the ignorant press that seems to blindly report on our industry have somewhat painted a negative picture on the meetings and incentives industry for some reason. What the hell is going on.....has every one gone freak'in mad!!!!!! The travel and tourism industry accounts for about 1 in every 8 jobs in the US. These events are responsible for feeding the mouths of family members working in hotels, airlines, meeting supplier vendors, as well as hundreds of other related businesses throughout the country. MEETINGS ARE A GOOD THING!!! And its about time the country gets educated in this fact. CNN, FOX, MSNBC, ..... all of them......stop it..... enough of this whimsical entertainment for the masses, lets get the facts straight and focus on consumer confidence. Meetings mean revenue, lots of revenue, for lots of people.......and thats a GOOD thing for the economy! And of course, revenue means jobs, housing, food, clothing, and shelter.....where is the confusion here?

Anyway, this is a shot of the room just before doors that I was proud to be a part of. Click below for the time-lapse of the room transformation.......
