BARTHA PRODUCES SEAMLESS HYBRID STADIUM-SIZED EVENT FOR 2021 NATIONAL FFA CONVENTION & EXPO
For more than 20 years, Bartha has supported the National FFA Convention & Expo. This annual gathering of 60,000 young adults develops leadership skills through agricultural education.
After more than 90 years of live events, the National FFA delivered its annual convention virtually in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The National FFA planned a return to in-person sessions in 2021, with events also live-streamed to virtual attendees. They turned again to their partners at Bartha to manage staging and production.
This live + virtual hybrid approach presented unique planning and execution challenges, especially given the combination of large convention hall and stadium event spaces. Bartha’s unrivaled project management ability, staging knowledge, and production expertise resulted in an outstanding event with incredible engagement.
The 94th annual event, held in October 2021 at the Indiana Convention Center & Lucas Oil Stadium (ICCLOS), required ample organization and logistics. From technical support to custom graphics and video packages and other staging needs, Bartha was there to produce an exceptional event.
