The National Nurses United held their Staff Nurse Assembly in Chicago this Spring and for the fourth year in a row, John Murray Productions, Inc. partnered with MetroMedia Productions, Inc. and BP Productions, to design and create the environment for the Union's annual event. The event launched their 'Nurses Campaign to Heal the World' which promotes a proposed Robin Hood tax created to raise revenue from Wall Street for the needs of Main Street. The event took place at the Sheraton Chicago Towers the same weekend as the NATO summit, also held in Chicago. The politically charged energy of the city created the perfect environment for the nurses to spread the message of their campaign, and their successful rally at Daley Plaza provided publicity for their cause. We helped bring the concepts of the campaign to life by using an international theme in our set design, which spanned the 230' length of the hotel's largest ballroom, as well as it's accompanying foyer. The set featured three large screens, mirrored on each side by our custom curved flats. An array of international flags decorated the left and right sides of the ballroom, while a current slideshow highlighting nurses in action constantly populated the eye candy screens which flanked the 12' x 36' center screen. The foyer utilized large format graphics to brand the space, and designate zones such as social networking and advocacy, where nurses could educate themselves on the union's purpose. One of the more popular features was the interactive 'If I could Heal the World...' chalkboard wall, where nurses had freedom to make a personal note on how they would better the world. The event was a huge success and we are, once again, grateful to be a part of the nurse's valiant mission.
