With ample power aptitude and rigging capabilities that surpass those of other arenas, the lighting and broadcasting specifications for the events were handled with ease. Additionally, two 15 by 15 foot tents outfitted with 80 lighted mirrors and dressing stations were set up back of house to serve as dressing rooms for the contestants.
The Courtyard by Marriott Dallas/Allen
was the host hotel for contestants, family members and attendees. The location in The Village at Allen
, right next door to the Event Center, made the pageant site convenient for contestants to get back and forth between their rooms and pageant events, as well as making it easy to grab a bite to eat or shop during their down time.
