Ranger Boats

Since 1998 Donnie Brawner has produced an annual National Dealers Meeting for Ranger Boats with dealer attendance of over 4,000. The meetings typically include a formal dinner with a 30 minute dramatic theatrical showcase of new products that have involved boats being revealed through kabuki curtains, driven through video screens, flown in from the ceiling, concealed in a balloon drop, and driven onto a dock, mid room pulled behind Chevrolet trucks. One year’s show also included a floor to ceiling, large format wide screen display. All of this in a hotel ballroom not designed for shows.

A second day of the event the rooms are converted into a corporate business meeting function and awards ceremony with lavish décor, guest speakers, and an evening dinner. On a third day ¾ of the room is converted into a massive boat display of over 60 boats and re-lit to best showcase the product. The other ¼ of the room gets converted into a 40’ X 60’ concert stage. The evening of the third day, the whole room gets converted into a concert hall with an evening name entertainment concert, and dinner for over 400 guests.

The boys at Ranger have always challenged us to create the impossible in a very difficult room but we have always figured out a way to achieve” says Donnie Brawner. “Ranger has always been one of our favorite clients and they make us feel like a part of their family. We’re honored to have been able to help them all these years. They are a great bunch of folks that work very hard to create a stunning product.”

Paragon 360 provides concept design for the meeting and designs sets, staging, lighting, and room layouts. Paragon also provides 100% of the technical support, equipment, and management through its various production partners including stage and scenic construction, lighting, audio and video production services, as well as stage crew management.
