For the 17th World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, a spectacular show was organised on the Danube. The opening ceremony was entrusted to ECA2 to create a two-hour show. This show took place on an impressive 2,000-m2 floating stage, which held almost 500 artists. ECA2 called upon Crystal Group to create the aquatic systems and fire effects.
