AV and technology systems are an important consideration when you’re choosing a venue for an event, whether a conference, award ceremony or product launch. The quality of AV facilities has a huge impact on delegate experience and can be the difference between a delegate finding your event exciting and memorable versus forgettable or frustrating!

If you’re hosting a STEM event or conference, your delegates will expect no less than cutting-edge technology and AV facilities. And from an organiser’s perspective, using the latest technology can reduce set up time and costs.

IET venues

It makes sense to find venues which are investing in their tech – and this is where IET Venues come in. We’ve recently completed over half a million pounds in AV and technology upgrades to our two conference and events venues in London and Birmingham, as part of our continued investment in state-of-the-art-facilities.

IET Birmingham: Austin Court

£450k of investments have gone into our central Birmingham venue, including upgrades to the 150 seated capacity Kingston Lecture Theatre. Our upgrades have transformed the lecture theatre into a live event space, perfect for lectures, training, product launches and award ceremonies.

The new facilities include:

  • A state-of-the-art sound system offering an enriched audio experience, ideal for award ceremonies.
  • Two HD projection walls either side of the stage, which can be used for extra branding or social media feeds.
  • Newly installed LED coloured lighting, which supports branding for product launches and allows for creativity in presentations.

Our central London venue has also received upgrades, with £280k invested into the Riverside Room. We’ve added to the existing high-quality AV and further transformed the versatile event space, which has 180 capacity, into one of London’s leading locations for award dinners, banquets and conferences.

Our upgrades include:

  • New cameras so that presenters can be filmed at any angle and live relayed on to two new video walls and two additional LED screens. Delegates will get a great view, including those who can’t make it and are watching via a live-streamed recording.
  • 4k screens which make presentations look stunning and allow users to programme presentations ahead of time, resulting in minimal setup time and costs.
  • Newly installed cutting-edge video mapping software which allows for multiple mapping of sound to different zones within the building, including on the roof terrace. You can also provide different digital content in different areas of the room, making it the perfect space for an exhibition.
