Aztec has been working hard in Brighton over the weekend, delivering a wide range of AV, IT and telecoms services to the Liberal Democrat annual conference, 22-26 September 2012, held across three main sites in the city, The Brighton Centre, The Grand Hotel and The Hilton Hotel.
A dozen Aztec technicians were needed to accommodate the vast scope of the project, and the team members have been busy in the run up to the conference installing managed switches and equipment that will be providing internet access, back office IT infrastructure and telephony services for conference delegates. Aztec is also providing all the IT, internet connectivity, telephones and televisions for the internal press office and the written news media.
Now that the conference is under way, Aztec’s attention has turned to the 150 plus events and fringe meetings that need AV equipment and support. These range from ministerial Q&A sessions and political caucuses using the newly acquired Shure ULX-D digital wireless system, to the conference grand finale, a Glee club party for all the delegates with a full PA and lighting rig.
Aztec’s managing director, John Robson, commented “We’ve been working with the Liberal Democrat Party for several years at their conferences. This years autumn conference has seen more delegates and tighter security than any other we’ve been involved with, and we’ve worked hard to provide an exemplary service, especially on the many mission critical aspects of the conference. We believe that our success at delivering the conference this year, and every year, is a testament to the great partnership we’ve built up with the Liberal Democrats events team.”
