We assisted Jerry Sherman, John Sergio & Associates and the city of Long Beach by providing theatre design advice to help them reinvent the facility, now called the Pacific Ballroom. The space, which can seat up to 5,000 guests, was enhanced with the addition of a one-of-a-kind moveable ceiling truss system, which can be lowered over the convention floor. Curtains hang from the truss and can be arranged to divide the space, meeting the specifications required for each user and event. With integrated lighting and sound systems, and push-button controls, the ballroom can be easily adapted to host most any event. Additional features include automated rigging and lighting systems, and adjustable curtain and wall systems.
