About Pro-X Event

As an established trade show and large events leader, Pro-X Event prides itself on its history of partnering with its clients. Pro-X Event is a “full-service provider” offering important services such as designing, manufacturing, and installing museum exhibits, showroom displays, mobile shops, point of sale kiosks, and experiential event activations. 

The challenge

In light of COVID-19, Pro-X pivoted to provide solutions that address the business challenges facing the event industry, such as the issues of social distancing barriers and webcasting equipment, software, and services to provide virtual meetings webinars, exhibits, and trade shows.

It was apparent that the hosting offered by the vendor of their content creation software was not performing well for their customers..

The solution

StratusGrid determined the AWS platform was a great fit, using S3 to store event assets. CloudFront was configured to serve the content to visitors and Route 53 created short, user-friendly addresses that Pro-X’s customers could offer to visitors when the event was launched.

A CI/CD pipeline was developed in order to assist Pro-X Event in the publishing of the virtual events. The assets were then extracted to the relevant S3 bucket for the staged event, making its availability immediate for the customer via the Internet.


StratusGrid & Agile Business Strategies

We were able to help Pro-X embrace the virtual events arena in ways that enhance, empower, and create unique and strategic offerings for clients in this all-important virtual event space using AWS offerings, such as Amazon S3 AWS CloudFront, Route 53, AWS CodePipeline, and AWS CodeBuild.

Pro-X Event benefitted from our expertise deploying cloud technology and services to support Pro-X Event’s needs for a new line of business focused on the hosting of virtual events, trade shows, and conferences of high quality.
