Esports community’s unmissable annual meeting

From February 14 to 16, 2020, the best teams in the world on Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six: Siege circuit gathered at Place Bell in Laval to compete for the title of ‘World Champions’ and get their hands on a 3 million USD grand prize. In addition to showcasing the best of the best of the esports universe, the Six Invitational puts this tightly woven community in the spotlight. The 4,800 spectators were also able to enjoy countless complementary activities and had the chance to meet their favorite players and guest influencers.

A challenge met with flying colors

Event producers Tribu Expérientiel, relied on Solotech’s unparalleled audiovisual and entertainment expertise to create a breathtaking stage experience. The screens would project real-time images and perfectly synchronized player interactions to truly immerse the spectators in the game. The on-site team successfully achieved this important technical challenge.

Mandated to provide all audio, video, lighting, and rigging equipment, the Solotech team worked hard to get everything ready on time. They installed several large screens, an LED stage floor, an L-Acoustics sound system, and lighting fixtures, both for stage lighting and architectural lights around the participating teams’ banners.

“Market growth has led to opportunities for Pro AV System Integrators and staging companies like Solotech to help build both permanent eSports facilities as well as temporary installations using rentals like we did at Place Bell for the annual Rainbow Six Invitational.”
