Essence Festival

Since 2012, Solomon Group has worked closely with ESSENCE to produce its annual ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans, LA.

As one of the largest annual events in North America, ESSENCE Festival requires nearly a year of planning. The daytime programming offered through the ESSENCE Empowerment Experience and Exhibitor Floor and brand activations takes place in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, and the nighttime entertainment takes place at Caesar’s Superdome.

In addition to providing the live production of the event, Solomon Group is responsible for executing many aspects of ESSENCE Festival including: creative, design, planning + production management, technology design + implementation, fabrication, sponsorship activation, venue management, and logistics.
