S&P Dow Jones Indices

Project

S&P Dow Jones Indices, the world’s largest global resource for index-based concepts, data and research, held a conference to explore Indexology. We created several environments in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona, utilizing S&P’s brand and marketing campaign imagery with highlighted items such as custom panels, light-boxes, lighted high-tops and lighted bars. Guests gathered to meet, greet and network in the Indexology Lounge. Three screens with custom animation helped illustrate how Indexology is defining the future of indexing and pushing past its frontiers for the benefit of investors today and tomorrow.

The Merestone scenic shop was at it again this year bringing Christmas cheer to the valley. Smoresland was hand carved and painted the marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers looked so good you may want to take a bite out of them. Santa’s mail room and headquarters was also set up and ready for the kids to get their letters to Santa.
