While the Dominique Wilkins statue unveiling event held at Phillips Arena took place in May we are STILL feeling the excitement of being a part of it! Known as the greatest basketball player in Atlanta Hawks history, Dominique has always exuded humility. From his past accomplishments on the court to his current position as Senior VP of Basketball Operations and TV announcer for Fox Sports South – Dominique’s humble character never fails to shine. His unwavering support for Atlanta’s hometown team makes him a special sports figure for our Atlanta office. We’re all in agreement that the city is long overdue in memorializing his image with a statue of his signature ‘Human Highlight Film’ dunking pose!
During the event Mayor Kasim Reed presented Dominique Wilkens with the highly coveted Phoenix Award. This award is the highest honor the Mayor of Atlanta can bestow upon an individual. The event made for an exciting night for Atlanta, the Hawks, and the legend himself, Dominique Wilkins!
Our team was honored to help produce this incredible event enshrining the NBA basketball star. Event Rentals Unlimited inventory items that were utilized in the production of this event were rentals of Chiavari chairs, tables, and flatware. We also provided all of the event staging which included custom carpet and our stage surround, a new inventory item. Working with Alchemy Event Studio and an all-star vendor team made for a smooth night at Phillips Arena and we cannot wait to do more events with such a sporty organization!
