SALT19 Conference Behind the Scenes

In this blog post, we go behind the scenes of SALT19 Conference. SALT Conference is one of the largest creative & production conferences focused on encouraging church creative leaders for an increasingly demanding creative world. The conference is a week all about equipping creatives with tools to bring back to their churches while also being a time of refreshing.

Some of the Renewed Vision staff were able to spend time at the conference building relationships with our customers and other vendors, participating in the general sessions and being refreshed. During this week we got to go behind the scenes and see all of the different technology that made SALT19 happen. We also spent time learning about the story and why behind it all. SALT is known for their unique takes on being creative with everything from limited budgets to expansive resources.

The Basics

This year for the theme SALT19 explored the theme “for such a time as this”, diving into the idea of in the midst of noise and chaos we can step into our calling as creatives. During the opener, the team was able to really immerse the attendees in an experience like no other. Using Immersive 3D technology from L-Acoustics they surrounded the people with a speaker system that provided a very intimate sound even though it was such a large room. Instead of just having lights at the font of the room they had them surrounding the entire space to really bring people in on the experience as well.

Of course this year, they used the Kinetic Lights system to bring the content to people as well instead of keeping it static and up in the air. This helped to create that immersive and intimate experience despite being with so many people in such a large space.

Behind The Scenes

I was able to spend some time talking to Rachel the Creative Director about the reason and story behind what SALT pulled off this year. Then I talked with Patrick the Production Manager about the technology employed at Long Hollow Baptist Church and the roles on the SALT19 team. Check out this video for an in-depth behind the scenes coverage of SALT19! And of course, they used ProPresenter for all of their lyric needs!
