"From Hardheim to the whole world" was the motto for the jubilee, which was celebrated in a marquee covering approximately 8,000 square metres. The highlight was a 360-degree projection on a surface measuring 150 by 6 metres, which was realised using 16 projectors. Chain hoists were used to lift the assembly three metres into the air for the production. Inside, there was room for 1,600 guests. The stage was situated in the middle of the marquee with a location-related sound concept ensuring the best possible level of speech intelligibility. Due to the height of the tent roof, we used moving lights rather than conventional lamps. The amount of material used brought us close to the tent poles' maximum load. To ensure the safety of the guests and of the event, 24 critical points were monitored by so-called load cells. A computer showed in real-time how much force was being transferred to the suspension points at any given time.
