Europalco shines in the production of the “What’s Next?” event

Europalco, the largest provider of solutions for events and shows in Southern Europe, showcased its expertise in creating immersive and interactive experiences at the What’s Next? event organised by DREAMMEDIA, a pioneer in Portugal in the Out-of-Home (OOH) advertising sector.

What’s Next?, held at the Sala Tejo of the Altice Arena, marked the 20th anniversary of DREAMMEDIA and excellence in OOH advertising. It was a visionary celebration attended by more than 800 participants and provided a glimpse into the future of outdoor advertising in Portugal and around the world.
Europalco played a crucial role in ensuring the success of the event by providing a series of services, such as audio-visuals, stage set-up, various furniture, hanging screens, and backdrops. The company deployed around 50 professionals to organise and execute the celebration to perfection.

The event aimed to “create a mini-city” and involved participants in various scenarios, showcasing the products and services offered by DREAMMEDIA. What’s Next? was hosted by Catarina Furtado, one of the most charismatic and esteemed personalities on Portuguese television. The immersive experience transformed the celebration into an interactive journey through the City of the Future.

Beyond the traditional, the event offered an immersive and interactive experience with performances by renowned Portuguese artists, including a captivating concert by Pedro Abrunhosa and the Caviar Committee, and a performance by magician Mário Daniel.

Europalco deployed a main screen, a 12m x 06m LW P3.9, which delivered stunning visual effects, complemented by 85” LCD screens from DREAMMEDIA. Christie Spyder X20 1608 and PVP video server were used for video processing and show control, ensuring a smooth and captivating visual experience for the audience.
