KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE – More than 600 business and community leaders gathered on May 3, 2013 to celebrate the finest businesses and individuals in East Tennessee, where Bandit Lites lit the ninth annual Pinnacle Business Awards Gala. The black tie event has quickly become one of the premier social events, complete with reception, silent auction, and a martini bar carved out of a block of ice.
Lighting designer Will Twork created an elegant atmosphere utilizing MAC 2k Profiles, MAC 500 and MAC 600. Framed in the stage set, six 4x30’ screen material panels were lit by GRN LED pars.
“It’s not a typical stage set-up,” said Bandits’ general manager, JR Sander. “From the moment people enter the room, we want them to immediately feel they are in a space befitting their status as a member of Knoxville Chamber of Commerce. It’s a special night for everyone, and Bandit is proud to both be a part of the Pinnacle Awards as well as a member of the Chamber of Commerce.”
Bandit Lites chair, Michael T. Strickland, was previously the Chair of the Board of the Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, Bandit Lites won the Large Business Excellence Award in 2008.
Angela Beaulieu, the Knoxville Chamber events coordinator, thanked the Bandit crew for their transformation of the ballroom into a “Pinnacle masterpiece.”
“The room and stage looked amazing. As always, it is great to work with you and your crew!” wrote Beaulieu.
