AWG's Logistics & Transportation Team manages another seamless EDC for Insomniac / by Devon Padgett

For the sixth year in a row, AWG's Award winning logistics management team was there to manage Insomniac's Electronic Daisy Carnival shuttle service June 17-19 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This year marked the 20th year anniversary for Insomniac's flagship event which was attended by over 400,000 festival goers. AWG's staff managed six strip shuttle locations in addition to the return shuttle location at the Speedway, helping over 45,000 attendees per night get back and forth to the event. In order to accomplish this feat, almost 500 motor coaches were needed from four states. Special permission was secured from Nellis Air Force Base to use the bases' roads which helped to ease some of the traffic congestion on I-15.

"It's truly a one of a kind project to move that many people from the strip to the Speedway every year but our staff takes a lot of pride and always rises to the occasion," commented AWG DMC President Kellie Hanley. "We are very proud to be Insomniac's trusted partner for this incredible event and look forward to continuing to raise the bar in logistics and management excellence in the years to come."

To enhance the service, AWG managed over 300 staff to ensure the flawless execution of the master plan which is a year round project touching all aspects of the operation. 

"Each shuttle stop is a program within itself requiring significant planning and execution from merchandise areas to bathrooms to power and tenting. No detail is too small and each step of the process requires approval from the client, venue and municipality prior to us building anything,"explained Senior Program Manager Robyn Mathis.
