Blitz | GES and The Skills Show provide an education in AV
Inspiring the future generation can be an industrious affair for anyone, but that is what Find a Future, the pioneers behind the UK’s largest skills and careers event, face each year. The event brings in famous names from a multitude of backgrounds, all there to offer expert advice and peer-to-peer guidance to the show’s thousands of visitors. Our task was to provide all the staging, lighting and audio expertise to make it happen.
Our skilled team of 50 engineers integrated technical equipment into 12 showcase zones, 4 spotlight areas and the main BBC performance stage, creating an audio and visual experience that maximises audience engagement and achieved a fluid delivery of the expertise that was on offer.
In an event that seeks to promote workplace excellence, it was paramount that we successfully demonstrated this. The seamless provision of all staging and technical equipment helped Find a Future to inspire more than 70,000 visitors towards a positive future.
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for making everything happen again! This year was by far the easiest, smoothest and stress free it has been. It is true testament to the hard work of you and your wider team. Neil, Paul, Terry and Jules were absolutely great, offering an air of calm across the show. It does not go without saying that the rest of your team played a huge part in the successful, seamless delivery of all our products across the NEC. It is an absolute pleasure to work with yourselves and I look forwards to catching up with you soon.
