World Autism Awareness Day shines a bright light on autism as a growing global health crisis. World Autism Awareness activities help to increase and develop world knowledge of autism and impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, World Autism Awareness Day celebrates the unique talents and skills of persons with autism and is a day when individuals with autism are warmly welcomed and embraced in community events around the globe.
On this day we participated in “Light It Up Blue” at the Vancouver International Airport. A short time frame was the greatest challenge – with only one week to prepare, and occurring on the same weekend as the Juno’s, equipment procurement proved to be difficult. Integration was the following challenge as equipment was required to be procured from multiple sources. A solid team of event professionals of programming and integration specialists ensured that this production was a success.
