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!
