Protec’s persistent desire to provide creative ways of using technology was underlined again by the award it received at the Middle East Event Awards 2017 for ‘Best Use of Event Technology – Product’ for the use of robotics across multiple event disciplines at the Expo’s awards even for the second year in succession.
Soon after accepting this win, Protec was called on to receive its second award of the night for ‘Best Event Video Solution’ for the prestigious Dubai Canal Opening Ceremony. Click here to check out Protec’s epic effort delivering this show.
It wasn’t long before Protec’s wins went to number three with the award for ‘Best Temporary Venue or Structure’ for the IDEX 2017 Opening Ceremony. The IDEX opening ceremony was watched by 25,000 spectators across five days and millions via a live televised broadcast. Converting a flat, tarmac car park into what was to become a stunning mountain scenic set with landscaping, waterfalls, road networks, a railway track with a custom built functional train, a submarine in the ‘lake’ and many more interesting features was no simple task. Protec’s staging department rose to the occasion once more to deliver a scenic staging set that ‘came alive’ for this truly one-of-a-kind show and what the media has already termed as the mother of all productions.
When asked for his reaction to another successful year for Protec with the three award wins, Stephen Lakin, Founder and CEO, said, “Allow me to first congratulate all the winners this year. For us however, it’s not about winning awards but being able to raise the bar of creativity and delivery with consistency and reliability. We are humbled by the awards we have won though and would like to thank our clients for their continued faith in our abilities. These awards are a testament to their conviction and belief in their own creative strengths and in trusting us to partner them with our staging and technical expertise to create great events in this ever growing region.”
