2015: back at the Staffordshire Tourism conference!

By September 2, 2015Uncategorized

Code AV has had some very prestigious customers and events this year, and we will be publishing a series of blogs about these over the next few days and months. The first one you can read about is the Staffordshire Tourism Conference 2015, which took place in April at Uttoxter Racecourse. The event is organised by Staffordshire County Council and Code AV are very proud that we have provided filming crew and equipment for this event for several years now.

Why do so many companies like Staffordshire County Council use and trust Code AV for their events? Because we are the best at what we do. Gary, the MD, has forged a successful career in AV from the heady days of slide projectors to the latest Full HD projectors, which Code AV use EVERY time, on every job. Code AV only do AV, nothing else. We pride ourselves on not spreading ourselves too thinly and giving our all to each event.

Staffordshire Tourism Conference, Uttoxeter Racecourse. April 2015

Code AV is proud to have Staffordshire County Council as a client, and this April we did the Tourism awards at Uttoxeter Racecourse. Tourism in Staffordshire, I hear you say? Well, just round the corner from the location for these awards is Alton Towers! Everyone has heard of this world-famous theme park but there is more to Staffordshire than a theme park and the Tourism Conference encourages growth and development of tourism in the county, with Keynote speakers, social media training and advice and funding workshops.  From Cannock Chase to Shugborough Historic Estate there is something for everyone, and of course there are also hundreds of hotels and B and Bs catering for the thousands of visitors to Staffordshire, from budget chains to boutique B and Bs and agrotourism.

From a logistics point of view, Uttoxeter Racecourse is a bit of a challenge: unlike many of our locations it’s upstairs and needs extra crew to get in. It’s also not very high which for many companies would mean compromise on quality, as this height restricts the choice of screen.

However, from Code AV’s vast array of bespoke equipment we used two 8’x6’ fastfold screens in a white conference set, Full HD projectors as we do for EVERY job and a 50” courtesy monitor in front of stage presenters.

We supplied all the AV equipment in the picture:

Set, screens, stage, courtesy monitor and black hide, lectern, graphics, PA system, microphones, Radio microphones, etc.
