No Fooling: GoVision Toasts Its 10th Birthday on April 1st

Leading LED rental firm marks a decade of "going bigger" at nation's grandest events.

Argyle, TX, April 05, 2012 --( Barack Obama and George W. Bush. Billy Graham and Snoop Dogg. Tiger Woods and Mary Lou Retton.

Strange bedfellows indeed. And just a handful of the hundreds of world-renowned celebrities whose faces have graced a GoVision screen since its founding 10 years ago Sunday.

GoVision LP, one of the nation's premier suppliers of customized modular LED walls and turnkey mobile LED units, marked its first decade of success with a festive celebration at its Argyle, TX, headquarters on March 23rd. More than 300 invited guests – including new and long-time clients, equipment vendors, local dignitaries and employees – were treated to a catered dinner while the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament was displayed on more than a dozen giant video screens scattered throughout the facility.

“In keeping with our philosophy of ‘Going Big,’ we wanted to throw a party that everyone would remember,” said Chris Curtis, founder and CEO of GoVision. “We’re really proud of what our little ole company from Argyle, Texas, has accomplished over the past ten years. We’ve played a key role in some of the biggest and most high-profile events in North America thanks to the professionalism of our team, the loyalty of our clients, the caliber of our technology and our relentless pursuit of perfection in the unpredictable event business.”

GoVision has rented truck-mounted and/or modular LED screens to more than 1,800 events and shows in its first 10 years – an average of an event every other day. Its trucks could have circled the globe 56 times, or made two-and-a-half trips to the moon and back, over the past decade. Its screens have entertained crowds in Canada, Mexico and all but five states.

More than 400 events are projected for 2012, which means its screens are often seen on multiple television networks simultaneously on any given weekend.

The company has provided high-definition video screens to the last two Presidential Inaugurations, Major League Baseball and NBA All Star Games, Super Bowls, NASCAR races, concert tours, arts and music festivals and corporate events.

GoVision’s team constructed the world’s tallest free-standing LED screen for the Boy Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Jamboree, and the world’s longest LED screen for a National Business Aviation Association show. Its screens have floated on a barge for a Jimmy Buffett concert, and on an aircraft carrier for a nationally televised college basketball game.

This September, GoVision’s state-of-the-art equipment will be on hand for the U.S. Open tennis championship in New York and the Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club in Chicago.

“It’s been an incredible run so far, and, frankly, I think it only gets better from here,” said Curtis. “We took a hit to our margins during the recession, but top-line revenue kept growing, and we’ve continued to expand our inventory. Now, as the economy picks up, we’re poised to be one of the most dominant players in our industry.”

GoVision boasts eight truck-mounted, high-definition LED units – including “GoBigger,” the largest mobile unit in North America – and a massive array of high-resolution, indoor/outdoor modular LED tiles. Its innovative partnerships with the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Christian University provide access to modular panels that GoVision’s technicians remove from their respective stadiums when not in use to add to its rental inventory.

“Given all the modular tiles we have at our disposal, there’s really no event that we can’t handle,” said Curtis. “In fact, we figured out we could cover the entire outside of the Empire State Building if we wanted to. But somebody’s going to have to pay us a pretty penny to do that!”

“Our goal has never been to be the biggest company in the industry,” he continued. “We just want to be the best. And, well, I think we’ve succeeded.”
