We were delighted to be asked to provide AV production for the Pall-EX Group at their recent awards event for the second successive year.
The event occurred at the recently refurbished Hilton Birmingham Metropole in February. Our team installed an AV solution for 3 areas, outside, the Kings Suite and the Monarch Suite.
Outside the venue, we installed two Ayrton Perseo’s containing a custom gobo, allowing us to project the Pall-EX logo onto the front of the venue. These IP65-rated fixtures were a great choice for the application.
The King’s suite was used for the drinks reception area for the 700 guests in attendance. An L’Acoustics PA system consisting of eight 12XT’s and powered by LA4X amplifiers was floor mounted around the perimeter of the venue to provide even coverage.
A 16ft diameter circular stage was installed in the centre of the venue for the Greatest Show themed entertainment to perform on. The room was uplit using over thirty Elation Sixbars, and the stage was illuminated with generic lighting fixtures.
The awards took place in the Monarch Suite, a 10m x 4m carpeted stage was installed in front of a draped backdrop with an acrylic lectern for the presenters.
Video was covered with a pair of 14’ wide projection screens and Panasonic 10k laser projectors with a 43” comfort monitor for the presenters to use. We also provided autocue for the presenters and host to use.
The front-of-house PA system consisted of L’Acoustics Kara, SB28’s, LA8’s and 5XT’s. Sennheiser G3 mics and IEM’s were used throughout, and all inputs ran through a Yamaha QL5 digital desk.
Lighting was controlled by an Avolites Quartz and consisted of 26x profiles, wash’s and beams along with Source 4’s for the stage wash. 40x uplighters were also positioned around the room to help create the right ambience.
Table plans were displayed on four 55” LED displays mounted on Unicol Parabella stands as well as the projection screens mentioned above.
Our team were able to install some of the AV equipment the day before the event before returning to site the next morning to complete the installation, run the show and de-rig overnight.
Client feedback was great, and we are looking forward to working with Pall-EX on the 2024 event.
