When Donald J. Trump is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, in Washington, D.C., those in attendance will be able to view the event on giant LED screens provided by Argyle-based GoVision.
It’s the fourth straight inauguration for GoVision, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
The company also worked at President George W. Bush’s second inauguration, and at both of president Barack Obama’s inaugurations, the DBJ reported.
GoVision founder, president and CEO Chris Curtis talked with the Business Journal about the huge logistical issues involved, and why there aren’t many competitors in the industry.
The company also has provided screens for such things as the college basketball Final Four and for sports championship parades, but being a vendor for an inauguration entails extra security screenings, Curtis told the DBJ.
That includes dealing with not only the congressional committee that actually stages the inauguration, but also the capital architect office and the capital police. Then, you can throw in the National Park Service, Homeland Security, the FBI, the Secret Service and the White House for good measure.
