CHICAGO — Warren Cunningham, founder of Dallas based CommuniLux Productions, will be retiring in January 2020, after having built one of the country’s leading scenic design companies. After selling to InProduction in 2018, and jointly overseeing two record years, Warren is ready to pass the torch. Bick Jones, well known in the event world as the man behind Ducky-Bob’s Party Rental in Dallas, will serve as general manager to replace Warren. CommuniLux will continue to provide outstanding scenic design work to its impressive list of corporate and production customers, as it also looks to expand its service offering and geographic reach.
“Our ability to provide our clients and prospective clients a full range of products and services to help them produce any event, large or small, across the country, is well established. Our growing number of locations, production teams, project management and technical support make event designs and builds faster and more efficient,” said John Campanelli, CEO of InProduction.
Bick Jones added, “I am honored to follow Warren at CommuniLux and to work with our incredibly talented scenic team to support an impressive list of clients. With the CommuniLux know how, powered by the InProduction platform, the sky is the limit to what we can achieve going forward.”

Their recent acquisitions of Seating Solutions, CommuniLux Productions, and the NUSSLI U.S. makes them the premier national provider of high-quality temporary audience risers, stadium seating, structures, staging, flooring, drapery, and scenery for sporting, corporate, and entertainment events.
