Freeman UK and Aztec Event Services today announced that they have signed an agreement whereby Aztec will become Freeman UK’s preferred AV partner. The agreement means that Aztec will provide Freeman with AV equipment and technical support across that UK and Europe.
Aztec have opened a warehouse in the Midlands. As part of the deal, Aztec has also taken over Freeman UK’s outdoor electrics and AV business, and the associated employees have joined a new division of Aztec called Aztec Live.
Each year Aztec provides AV equipment and technical support to over 300 high profile exhibitions, events and conferences. These include World Travel Market, the Ideal Home Shows, Marketing Week Live and corporate clients such as Arsenal and Cisco. Because of this there is a high degree of synergy with Freeman UK which will be extremely beneficial to both parties.
Aztec’s Managing Director, John Robson, commented, “We are the official AV supplier to a high proportion of UK shows and have established ourselves as providers of quality service and equipment. Our clients recognised this recently in the EN Elite Awards where we won the category of Best AV Hire and Production Company. This partnership with Freeman is a natural progression of our business that will lend our expertise and service ethos to Freeman’s client base”.
