Best Use of Event Technology Award goes to… Protec
As unexpected pieces of theatre go, the sight of an industrial robot gracefully sketching the finer features of Jimi Hendrix takes some beating. And so it was that at the 2016 Middle East Event Awards, a marriage of artistry and industrial engineering saw Production Technology LLC (Protec) receive the award for ‘Best use of Event Technology’ from organisers – Informa Exhibitions.
Organisers – Informa Exhibitions also engaged Protec to stage the spectacular ME Event Awards 2016 event itself. The ballroom was rigged with almost two hundred moving light fixtures and motion controlled video projection along with carefully locating the necessary audio reinforcement, all in a space with only six metres of headroom. The awards show truly reflected the use of technology and excellence in design that the industry was there to celebrate.
