Siemens turned to TradeTec Skyline, an authorized Exhibit and Events company, to pull together in just two weeks a press conference at the Siemens Technologies Plant in Alpharetta, GA highlighting the new street car project. TradeTec was responsible for all aspects of the press conference, including seating and hospitality for guests, along with risers for the five key note speakers. The speakers shared information about the Atlanta Streetcar project and the economic development impact using propulsion systems made by Siemens in Atlanta.
"When Siemens approached us for help, we were instantly up for the challenge. Pulling together a successful press conference with only two weeks seemed like a daunting task, but we were able to pull all the details together to create a successful event for all 350 people. I'm incredibly proud of our staff and the event they created for Siemens," said Ken Buckman, CEO of TradeTec Skyline (http://www.ttskyline.com).
The press conference included nearly 350 in attendance, including guests representing the city of Atlanta, MARTA, Central Atlanta Progress, Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and the Federal Transit Administration. All were there to hear the Mayor, Kasim Reed and other presenters involved discuss the first streetcar project for Atlanta and the importance of the transportation issues it will improve. Major local media covered the press conference and guests got to see firsthand the APS systems and inverter designed by Siemens that will power the Atlanta Streetcars. The event was a raving success, and Siemens was thrilled with the turnout.
