NASDAQ Opening Bell Ceremony

Live streaming, production and logistics for NASDAQ’s first-ever Opening Bell ceremony in Ireland

In 2013, NASDAQ came to Dublin for the first time and Taoiseach Enda Kenny and NASDAQ’s Bruce Aust opened the stock market live on stage. The event was a big deal as it not only marked the first time that the NASDAQ bell had been rung in Ireland but it was also witnessed by 10,000 attendees–the conference’s largest audience to date. 

CREATE // Bringing NASDAQ Tower in NYC to Dublin

The original challenge was to provide technical production, design and management for NASDAQ’s second ever remote Opening Bell ceremony – and their first in Europe. One key role included live streaming directly onto NASDAQ tower in Time Square, NYC.  

EXPERIENCE // Excitement For All 

In order to create one cohesive experience, we managed the stage and graphic design requirements while collaborating with the team at NASDAQ to ensure the visual impact they wanted fit with the stage design. Our involvement didn’t end there though! We managed the event logistics, technical requirements, on ground support, and production management to ensure the Opening Bell was a seamless ceremony both at the venue in Dublin and on the largest screen in the world in NYC. No pressure at all!

IMPACT // Remote Locations Over The World

The ringing of the NASDAQ bell solidified Dublin’s position as a leading digital hub and the event attracted global media attention. The experience had such a positive impact that the NASDAQ team has since gone on to host similar remote events in multiple locations outside NYC.

“Ringing the NASDAQ bell from Dublin is symbolic of Ireland’s prime position as a hub of digital enterprise and innovation.”

– Enda Kenny, Taoiseach

Catapult have worked with the NASDAQ team every year since across multiple locations – from Las Vegas and New Orleans to Lisbon.
