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.

USMC: Marine Week

USMC: Marine Week

Project

Marine Week was hosted in Phoenix and supported by Merestone. The multi-venue event was held at University of Phoenix Stadium, Downtown Civic Park, and in the streets of downtown Phoenix. It was a magnificent event and a great display of the skill and presence of the United States Marines. Merestone assisted with providing audio equipment, tenting, décor, power, entertainment, concert sound and lighting. We provided organization and communication between the City of Phoenix, the City of Glendale, the United States Marine Corps, and the Pentagon. We even helped plan a MAGTF (Marine Air Ground Task Force) demonstration at the University of Phoenix Stadium for the Marines to deliver the game ball right to the Cardinals. Oohrah!

Camille Hill, President of Merestone has been selected to do judging for the Telly awards. This is the sixth time she has participated in the judging aspect of the stellar awards.

Today, the Telly is one of the most sought-after awards by industry leaders, from large international firms to local production companies and ad agencies. With the quality of non-broadcast productions, traditional local & cable television commercials and programming on the rise, along with the world of online video continuing to rapidly evolve, Camille is excited to see this year’s class of entries
As a member of the Silver Council, Camille is a dedicated fan of the Telly Awards. “It is a pleasure to participate in the Telly Awards judging because, it gives me a chance to see some excellent industry work and the Telly Awards is a quality organization.”
