The Marines have landed in Detroit!

Challenge

Help 700 Marines engage with thousands of spectators over 5 days. Set up included bringing in over 60 pieces of military equipment including tanks, ground artillery and landing the Marine Corps’ largest helicopter, the “Osprey”, in the heart of the city all while simultaneously setting up tenting infrastructure within a 24 hour window.

Solution

– 7 days of coordinating simultaneous events in multiple locations in the city

– 30 minutes of pyrotechnic and aircraft shows between international waters

– 6,000 square feet of tenting infrastructure

– Audio/Visual coverage over 1/4 mile of Detroit’s riverfront viewing area

CPS acted as city liaison coordinator, audio visual and production, tenting and infrastructure partner and event production supervisor for the week’s events, including static displays, MAGTF demonstrations, wreath laying ceremonies and other Marine Corps traditions.

CPS successfully collaborated with local businesses and city officials to execute multiple events and build out safe environments for the Marines to showcase their gear including an MV-22 Osprey and CH-53 Helicopter.

Result

Creating timeless memories for Metro Detroit residents and providing the unique experience of connecting the American public with hundreds of Marines.
