The R Awards is an evening to recognize all athletes competing for Rutgers. The red carpet event recognizes, via both awards and videos, the many accomplishments of the Scarlet Knights during each season on the field, in the classroom and in the community. Alongside Rutgers Athletics, Hurricane facilitates audiovisual coordination, lighting, music and stage direction for the event.

Corporate Events - Management, Production, Branding and Entertainment
Few companies can provide Corporate Events with a full-service branding experience as well as management, production and entertainment.
But Hurricane Productions brings 10 years of event expertise to corporate seminars, conferences, trade shows and galas.
Hurricane Productions' most recent event - AARA Trade Show - showcased a full-service corporate event experience:
The live element of any event presents unique challenges. But with its attention to preparation, Hurricane makes sure its clients communicate all of their needs prior to the event.
In addition to countless emails and phone conferences, Hurricane met with AARA's Board of Directors four times within a two month window before the trade show.
On the day of the event, Hurricane created a command station where event specialists directed sound, technology and entertainment from a central hub.
Branding and Design:
Hurricane handcrafted each brandable element of AARA.
Hurricane designed custom visuals that displayed real-time updates to high definition screens around the convention center.
A custom 'Step and Repeat' display reminiscent of a Hollywood Red Carpet helped greet attendees and vendors for group photos.
A team of photographers and videographers documented the entire trade show. This included candid photos of attendees and products. And each vendor received a complimentary framed photo of their booth and staff as a 'Thank You' for participating at this year's show.
Live Stream and Aerials:
Attendees and vendors alike were treated to a live stream around the convention center. But what really caught everyone's attention was a Quadcopter equipped with a GoPro3 camera. The copter flew above the crowd and streamed live video to screens around the convention floor.
Just like any good trade show, AARA thrives on its vendors' treating its attendees to giveaways and trade-show only deals. In order to make this an attractive centerpiece of the event, AARA employed one of Hurricane's emcees to host the event and entertain the crowd.
Hurricane also provided music for the eight hour event.
Hurricane Productions filled the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center with the JBL PRX Line Array sound system and high powered projection systems for display.
About AARA: The Asian American Association of Retailers is a not for profit organization representing Convenience Stores, Gas Stations and Liquor Stores in the Tri-State area of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. The main objective of AARA is to protect retailers while delivering stronger and more profitable future for their business.

Sigma Chi Fraternity and several Rutgers University National Panhellenic Conference sororities continue to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for the Children's Miracle Network and other philanthropies through an event known as Derby Days. Although Derby Days is a nationwide event hosted by Sigma Chi brothers at many different universities, Rutgers hosts the largest in the country.
Each year, the Greek organizations raise record-breaking totals during the week-long competition. Derby Days culminates with a 'Lip Sync' performance where each organization choreographs a routine and puts on a show for family and friends.
Hurricane Productions provides sound, lighting, projection mapping, stage direction, and social media integration.
