From 1998-2017 Donnie Brawner produced an annual National Dealers Meeting for Ranger Boats.
For nineteen years, Paragon 360 produced the annual National Dealers Meeting for Ranger Boats Inc. The meetings draw attendance of over 1,000 and feature theatrical product reveals, business meetings, guest speakers, product displays, awards ceremonies, and concerts spanning over a four-day period. Past meetings have included boats being driven thru video screens, flown from the ceiling, indoor pyro, low lying nitrogen fog with floating boats covering over 5,000 square feet, floor to ceiling video screens, kabuki curtains, turn-tables, theatrical sets and more.
The opening night, theatrical product reveals were always the hit of the show and included very scripted, highly technical productions that perfectly timed new reveal of the Ranger models with a high-powered soundtrack, videos, lighting and special effects. Four days later, concerts from country artists such as Brad Paisley, Montgomery Gentry, Justin Moore and others, always capped off the event.
“The boys at Ranger have always challenged us to create the impossible in a very difficult room that was not meant to handle productions of this magnitude but we have always figured out a way to achieve” says Donnie Brawner, Paragon 360 Owner and CEO. “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.”
Paragon 360 produced the meetings in a turn-key, design/build format which included providing concept design in addition to design, provision and implementation of audio, video, lighting, rigging, scenic construction, technical direction and project management.
"Confident, creative, cool under pressure and committed to quality performances. That describes Donnie Brawner and his approach to every show he's directed for us. Thanks for being such a strong partner!"
