Awards Season - Monthly Review January 2020

We started the year supplying the London Art Fair, which is held every year at the same venue as Paramount HQ. The radios (and some of our staff) enjoyed the week surrounded by some of the best new contemporary art at the show.

We then got fully absorbed into award season. We have covered product awards, car awards with GQ and then moved onto one of music’s wildest award nights of the year at the NME awards. This year in particular lived up to its reputation and lets just say the radios being used by the security team were appreciated more than ever this year and again proved why they are still a necessity for anyone hosting an event this year. The red carpet and build up radios had a much less eventful night brushing shoulders with the stars.

There were a few sporting events this January for our two way radios this month with kit going off to Paris for the launch of the NBA Paris 2020 games. Our hire team program all the radios to European channels to ensure they have private clear channels that are legal for use in the country where they are being used and to ensure no traffic is on the channels are clients are using. Closer to home the radios were out at Autosport 2020 in Birmingham watching Europe best motocross stars.

Back in London, some of the radios were sashaying into Olympia at Ru Pauls Dragcon. This was a large show covering the whole of London Olympia, which meant the engineers in our technical team were tasked with examining the sitemaps for this show to ensure coverage would cover the entire area. Luckily for the client the engineers were able to come up with a plan that provided coverage to all the areas they needed without the need for any additional systems or infrastructure. Other radios were out at some large shows across London, some being the national wedding show at London Olympia, Nursery World Live at Business Design Centre.

The hire team have gotten off to a flying start this January with a lot of big shows, events and award ceremonies.
