I wasn't there for this as it was a private (By Invitation Only) event.
The podium was just aft of Turret #3, and if you'll look closely, you'll see a red, ribbed "thing" behind the speakers. This is the antenna mount for the Trussed Monopole antenna we use for BIARA Amateur Radio operations. The antenna itself has been removed as otherwise it would have been a distraction.
And security was very tight for the event, with "Men in Black" scurrying around before, during, and after the event.
