Shanghai Expo 2010, China.

USA Pavilion & Information/Communication Pavilion.

 

With an extensive presence behind the scenes at Expo 2010 Shanghai China, Electrosonic selected Smart Monkeys to provide Medialon show control programming for China Mobile and China Telecoms Information & Communications Pavilion as well as the USA Pavilion that showcases the American spirit of perseverance, innovation and community building. Renowned for its award-winning approach to emotional storytelling and immersive experience design, both pavilions were created and produced by BRC Imagination Arts.

Smart Monkeys initially teamed with Electrosonic one year before the Expo opened and understood the complexities of equipment control and the management of visitor flow through the pavilions. In addition, the company recognized that the show control systems in both buildings would be operated by non-technical staff.

 

"The USA Pavilion is one of the most popular pavilions at the Expo," added added BRC's Tisa Poe. "Over 4 million guests have gone through in less than four months. Smart Monkeys' smart programming enabled operations to run the shows very efficiently and achieve one of the Expo's highest maximum hourly capacity with very minimum downtime."
