G20 Leaders' Summit, Brisbane, November 2014
"The G20 Leaders’ Summit brought together 34 leaders and 5,300 delegates from across the world for an event that depended on easy communications across 14 languages. Congress Rental provided interpretation equipment for use at three venues at the G20 Leaders’ Summit, held in Brisbane on 15-16 November 2014. Congress delivered the equipment under tight constraints and worked tirelessly to ensure the equipment was delivered and installed on time. The systems performed perfectly at each venue, playing a crucial role in the success of the event. CEO Jeremy Ducklin and his team understood the requirements for interpretation systems from the perspectives of customers and interpreters, ensuring a flawless performance for the G20 Leaders’ Summit".

Once again, we thank you for your sponsorship and support. "

Everything was directly coordinated with Encore, the in-house AV team at the Hilton where the event took place, which meant that I did not have to worry about anything.

We will definitely be in touch again in the future for similar events. "
