BlueWater Technologies supports Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS) with Event Design, Staging and Technology Expertise

BlueWater Technologies Inc. ( showcases its large-scale event design, staging and technology expertise to support the Progressive International Motorcycle Show (IMS). BlueWater Technologies competed against six vendors for the opportunity to design and build the main rock and roll stage and provide day-of logistics for the entire 12-city tour, which recently stopped in Detroit. A BlueWater Technologies team of six travels with the event, which began in San Mateo, CA on October 25, 2013 and includes stops in Texas, Georgia, California, New York, Michigan, DC, Minnesota , Arizona, Ohio, Illinois and Washington.

“Knowing we needed a rock and roll event stage this year to support the inclusion of School of Rock, the 2014 IMS had a much bigger scope and we needed the right partner to execute our vision. Ultimately we chose BlueWater Technologies because of their extensive experience in live events and AV integration. From design and build to day-of logistics and AV support, BlueWater continues to exceed our expectations in each new city we visit,” said Progressive Special Lines Event Coordinator Todd Matthews. This roadshow tour was BlueWater Technologies’ first engagement with Progressive Insurance.

“This event was a natural fit for us,” says BlueWater Technologies Account Manager Chad Hines. “Our expertise in dynamic multimedia roadshows and commercial event staging gave Progressive confidence that its vision would seamlessly come to life. In the future, we hope to further enhance these events by drawing on our digital media entertainment expertise with shows of this scale.”

The final roadshow event concludes on February 14, 2014. This year’s attendance is expected to surpass last year’s single-city record of 100,000+ attendees.
