Six-Day Time Lapse of a corporate event at Quebec City’s Congress Center

For a big corporate event held at the Quebec City Congress Center, my client wanted me to take a time lapse of the room, as well as the actual event. You are seeing six days compressed in just over five minutes. The room takes shape over three days, then goes over three difference layout changes over three more days as the event progress. If you can, watch it on Youtube with the big player in HD
Technical: 1 photo every 32 seconds with a Canon 1D Mark III with a 16-35 at 16. I ended up with 17,000 something photos to play with.
