I’ve just uploaded this cool video which I got hold of internally that shows how the PDC08 keynote room was assembled, used and broken down in under 6 minutes.  It’s quite impressive how it all comes together, just for a few hours of presentations!

I recommend putting some music on in the background whilst you watch :-)

  • We really forget how much effort it takes to put these things together. Seeing it go by like this though makes me appreciate the hard work of all the people once again.

    PDC 2008 was an excellent sho lets hope the economy can pickup and more of these events will be possible.

  • Quite astonishing amount of hard work there. it;s so easy just to think it's a keynote here and a keynote there. but boy, what a load of work - to put it up, do it, and then of course, dismantle! fascinating video - and thanks to everyone - from the lighting to the drivers of those orange truck thingies!

  • crazy huh? these guys seriously know what they are doing!!

  • Awesome. What made watching this even more awesome was the fact that as soon as I clicked play, the sound track on my playlist just started was "give it to me" by madonna and it really synched, lol. I actually went back to media player and stopped it to see if it was actually the video's audio track or my media player.

    Very organized!

  • Dont want to spam your comment's area but the lyrics actually did hit too :p
