Things have heated up over the last few weeks, both outside and in! Sabre kicked off the summer working on an extraordinarily hot project with one of the nation’s most admirable organizations, the National Federation of State High School Associations.
With over 700 rooms booked for the NFHS 95th Annual Summer Meeting (held at Boston Marriott Copley Place), Sabre took on the exciting challenge of transforming the Boston Marriott Copley hotel into a venue of inspiration and admiration for the many student athletes and performers showcased at the meeting. Sabre planned, designed, produced and installed over 100 unique large format graphics across three floors of the hotel.
Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, the National Federation of State High School Associations is an organization lending a hand to the youth of America. Since 1920, NFHS has written sports rules for many high-school activities, public and private schools alike. The association is present in all 50 states and while they are widely known for establishing sporting rules, they are also devoted to providing an amazing support system for students.
Consisting of staff and board members, nearly 1,000 individuals, participated in this summer’s meeting, which included the 32nd annual induction ceremony for the NFHS Hall of Fame, highlighting five exceptional former high school participants. The NFHS also met to discuss a number of significant details pertaining to sports and performing arts rules and regulations.
Sabre approached the task with the usual enthusiasm and diligence, designing impactful graphics to accurately represent the principles and objectives of the organization, including their impact on the lives of many young students. It was important to NFHS that the focus of the meeting remain on the students –– and to recognize their accomplishments and unwavering dedication.
Photographs of young athletes and performing arts students encircled indoor and outdoor columns, swathed elevator doors and floors and were highlighted from window areas surrounding an expansive atrium area of the hotel. Vinyl pennants representing all 50 states lined the escalators inviting guests as they entered the event. Graphics were also designed and installed to accentuate and streamline the registration process for the event; providing a smooth start to the meeting and creating a radiant energy for all.
Sabre is proud to have helped the National Federation of State High School Associations make their 95th Annual Summer Meeting a visually dynamic success!
