Visavvi have once again been successful with their flagship AV over IP installation at the new £40m Lower Mountjoy Learning Centre for Durham University, winning the Education Project of the Year category at the Audio Visual Technology Europe Awards. The project featured technology that enhances the student learning experience both now and for the future, providing a flagship development that has a global presence and importance in the Higher Education sector. Check out the virtual tour.
Still at the awards, a new category introduced at the ceremony this year, was the ProAV Power20. This award recognised the key influential contributors to the industry and congratulations go to a very worthy 17th position for our very own joint managing director, Andy Dyson.
Still with Visavvi, it is with great pride that we are able to congratulate Brandon Ward, our Visavvi apprentice on passing his Level 3 Infrastructure Technician qualification with a Distinction. Apprenticeships are a fantastic route for new AV talent to join the industry and despite having to catch two buses and two trains every day, AND put up with a global pandemic, Brandon has in true form shone through. Over the last two years, Brandon has consistently proved himself, earning the respect of his older and more experienced colleagues, and coincidentally played a vital role in the success of the Durham University project. Congratulations Brandon!
Meanwhile, our Sparq technical event specialists have been busy leading the way with digital solutions to combat the effects of the pandemic. As leaders in the sector, the Sparq digital team has delivered digital events globally to over 87 countries just in the past few months alone.
