The Houston LIVE experience at Super Bowl LI

Capturing the essence of Houston told through a story encompassing performance art, local cuisine, science and industry, and cultural diversity. Driven by the theme “Celebration, Inspiration and Energy,” GES partnered with Orlando-based IDEAS to create a street festival atmosphere that included a 35,000-square-foot tented pavilion housing sponsor exhibits and performance areas. 

Houston Live

GES teamed up with several talented partners to bring the Houston Live experience to life at Super Bowl LI. More than 20 interactive exhibits and attractions, multimedia presentations, live entertainment, local cuisine and social media connectivity - all presented in a uniquely-designed environment showcasing the host city as a dynamic center of culture and innovation.

The centerpiece of the experience was Future Flight, a virtual-reality ride created in tandem with NASA that simulated a trip to Mars while thrilling visitors with a 65-foot drop tower plunge that landed them on the 50-yard line of NRG Stadium.
