GE Healthcare Vision360 Kickoff at RSNA

[imagebrowser id=15] The RSNA (Radiological Society of North America) 2013 conference kicked off last week in Chicago, the largest conference of its kind in the world. Part conference part convention, GE Healthcare was in attendance showing off the best and brightest new technology within GE Healthcare. With hundreds of GE employees from around the world coming to the conference, GE challenged Manifesto with concepting, creating and producing an internal vision-setting event.  An event to engage, ignite, and deliver a wholistic perspective on why GE will continue to lead innovation in healthcare for years to come.

Manifesto turned the would be 90-minute PowerPoint marathon to an experiential theater in the round experience called Vision360. The event featured GE Healthcare verticals including powerful storytelling from Tom Gentile, CEO of GE Helathcare Systems and Bob Schwartz, head of GE Healthcare Global Design. Ben Arment, Founder and Curator of STORY emceed the event and seamlessly transitioned the audience between presenters and compelling content. The event included stunning sizzle videos, rousing intros and music, and powerful presentations that delivered on the Vision360 ethos.

STORY Chicago

[imagebrowser id=8] At the crux of the creativity is storytelling itself. Few things can awaken and inspire the creative class more than an experience steeped in narrative storytelling and art. This collision of people, place and passion spurs a desire to create at the very root of inspiration itself. Enter STORY; a 2-day creative summit that draws 1000 artists, filmmakers, writers, photographers, designers, and marketers to the heart of Chicago. This year’s theme, “A Sense of Place”, will feature a robust speaker series including Nike's Howard Licther, Creative Director of the Decade, Alex Bogusky and Scott Harrison, cultural disruptor and Founder of Charity: Water.

As if we could be left out of the fun, Manifesto has spent the last 6 months working with STORY's creator Ben Arment to help socialize, develop sponsorship materials, and curate key brand partners and attendees for the event. And we’re proud to say that even now, STORY enthusiasts have begun the countdown to September 18-20th — setting their travel sites on the windy city as they look forward to a weekend of pure inspiration.
