The Bank of China Sydney Branch 75th Anniversary Celebration Dinner
We were thrilled to help the Bank of China celebrate their 75th anniversary of opening their very first Sydney branch in Australia. We love to bring nations together, and what better way do that then provide interpretation to prominent business and government leaders from both Australia and China.
Our team supplied 570 people with simultaneous interpretation between English and Manadarin dialects. Each attendee received a Bosch receiver which was waiting for them on their table when they arrived.
The event took place in the brilliant Town Hall in the Sydney CBD. The venue was spectacular, lit up with red ambient light to symbolise the Bank of China colour. The bank’s logo was projected across the walls of the Town Hall, creating a spectacular visual display.
Our interpreters sat in one of our quality booths above the event space below. A quality visual and audio feed enabled the interpreters to give an accurate interpretation of the event’s proceedings. The audio signal was then transferred all around the room with our strategically placed infra-red radiators.
Our personal highlights from the event were hearing the honourable Bob Hawke speak about the history of Australia’s ties with China, as well as the contemporary dancers that opened the show.
Our team had a fantastic time exhibiting, participating, speaking and supplying equipment for FIT Congress 2017. It was a busy yet exciting couple of days.
First off, our managing director Jeremy Ducklin was asked to speak on the Knowledge Fest CEO panel and provide insights into the interpretation industry. We had a lot of great questions about remote interpretation and how technology is going to disrupt the industry. Jeremy explained how interpreters that utilise technology are going to be ahead of the game and will dominate the market in the future.
Our Operation Manager, Campbell Bartlett, also spoke at two of the conference's break out sessions. He gave an in-depth seminar on remote interpretation technologies and a separate demo showcasing the new ipad application iipher. The app is disrupting the current industry by providing a seamless platform that facilitates remote simultaneous interpretation that can be used by independent interpreters wherever there is a stable internet connection.
Congress Rental also provided the interpretation equipment throughout the whole event. The team provided the first two days of meetings that occurred prior to the conference with interpretation equipment for English and French dialogues. The team then proceeded to provide the equipment for English to French throughout the entire conference, providing top of the range Bosch equipment including one booth, our full infra red simultaneous interpretation system, 2 idesks and 200 receivers for the event.
The interpretation experience was error-free and the delegates loved to see the equipment in action!
We also met interpreters and translators from all over the world at our exhibitor booth where they were able to test and demo our equipment.
The event was a complete success and we look forward to doing many more in the future!
Our microphone equipment is all set up and ready for show at our Singapore office!
Our clients witnessed an amazing demo featuring wired dicentis, multimedia and NG wired microphones all sharing the same camera switcher.
