Aztec Event Services has been selected as AV supplier to the EcoPrint Live 2012 conference and exhibition, Berlin, 26-27 September. EcoPrint Live is a new show focusing on sustainable and environmental print solutions, providing a forum and a marketplace for the industry to share and disseminate environmental solutions.
Aztec is supplying AV for the main stage, the technical workshop seminar, the eco showcase seminar theatre, the round table debate area and the Q&A small stage, and has contributed to a popular package deal for exhibitors comprising of a laptop, plasma display screen and suite of indispensable on-stand AV equipment.
Unlike most other exhibitions and conferences, the organiser of EcoPrint Live, FM Brooks, required suppliers to provide an exhaustive ecological and environmental audit as part of their tender and Aztec employed an independent consultant to help document its environmental credentials and practices to the complete satisfaction of the organisers.
John Robson, managing director of Aztec Event Services explains why Aztec is particularly pleased with this endorsement of its environmental commitment, “We’ve been quietly working away at reducing our impact upon the environment for years now, and I think things like using biodiesel in our vans and recycling our biggest waste product – felt from stage sets – by donating it to local schools and Brownies/Cubs, hit a chord with the organisers. They want to work with suppliers that really ‘get it’ as opposed to ones that just tick boxes and I believe we came through with flying colours.”
The Aztec team arrive in Berlin on Monday September 24 to start the build and installation, will be on-site for the duration of the show providing technical and system support, and will return home after the show finishes, on Friday September 28.
