September 2014, Saudi Arabia - The palatial Hotel Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Riyadh provided the backdrop recently for an impressive multimedia spectacle. It was the first time in Saudi Arabia that the different disciplines within a show were seen to interact.

To get a show in this unprecedented form up and running, A&O Technology summoned its best creative minds. The well-drilled A&O Creative team put together a complex multimedia show despite a very tight time frame of only four weeks. Whilst in classic productions, the disciplines (lighting, pyrotechnics, music...) take turns to occupy centre stage, the Saudi royal family, represented here by the Governor of Riyadh, Prince Turki bin Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, wanted something very special for this event: that all the professions should interact. So A&O Creative created the artistic concept for a show of exceptional quality to mark the 82nd anniversary of the formation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. At the same time, an extensive 3D mapping show was staged at the hotel in the Saudi capital. The show’s Creative Director was the renowned lighting designer Jerry P. Appelt, who took charge of both the show concept and the lighting design.

The entire ochre front facade of the hotel complex was used here as a projection surface. As though on an oversized movie screen, the past, present and future of Saudi of Arabia with its capital Riyadh were depicted in sublime images and video sequences - accompanied by gripping music. Lights visible for miles around and an impressive firework display crowed the show, which drew an enthusiastic reception from the cream of Saudi society.

Aside from its creative contribution, A&O Technology was acting here as all-in-one supplier of the lighting, video and laser equipment. The magnificent fireworks were provided by the pyro specialists Fireworks by Grucci. "We worked hand-in-hand with Grucci to ensure the various elements of the show were perfectly coordinated. After collaborating with them on the projects for National Day in Doha and the 2013/14 New Year’s Eve celebrations at the Hotel Atlantis The Palm in Dubai, National Day in Riyadh was yet another joint project for the portfolio" says Marco Niedermeier, CEO of A&O Technology.
