Oasys Innovations, South Africa's leading exhibitions and events company with numerous autonomous supporting services including audio visual systems, was appointed to prepare and maintain the infrastructure during the December 2007 ANC congress in Polokwane.
Says Brian Kennedy, Oasys Innovations Managing Director: “We are hugely honored by the confidence the public sector has once again shown in our ability to facilitate the congress with top technologies for infrastructure. This follows earlier successes with, amongst others, the infrastructure for events such as the Presidential election, the Africa Unity conference, as well as many local and international events. We are particularly proud of our representations in Africa, Europe and Asia, where we strongly support the programme, ‘Proudly South Africa'.”
The company will install 2200 square meters of VIP marquees for this executive event for networking between political and business leaders. The infrastructure will also accommodate restaurant facilities, smoking lounges, and reception areas. Audio visual screens, including high-definition LCD monitors, will be strategically positioned for viewing of the proceedings. Other infrastructure includes flooring, specialised walling, furniture and lighting.
Kennedy concludes: “Although we currently handle about twenty projects every month, we will mobilize a large part of our 300 employees to install and manage the project to ensure that the hosts and the guests are comfortable at all times.”
