Protec’s plans for their Event Production Show (EPS) exhibition stand are well under way, and we are excited to see what these events industry stalwarts are going to bring to the table from 26-27 February at Olympia London.

Strategically positioned opposite the networking bar, Protec have two adjoining 25m2 spaces. When we asked about the plans for the stand, we were promised a showcase of their latest event technology within an inviting space.

Expect to meet Stephen Lakin, CEO & founder of the Protec group, Chris Bramwell, managing director of Protec European Events, Edward Andradé, marketing director and Jason Strange, head of business development.

All four will be available to offer the benefits of their vast experience, and lend event planners and potential clients plenty of technical advice and tips to help support their creative vision.

Lakin says: “It is our aim to bring something impressive and engaging to this exhibition, and we are currently challenging ourselves to do something we have never done before in this part of the world. We are working to combine two very exciting technologies in an innovative and unique way.”

Protec’s advanced technology department is working hard to deliver creative ideas that trigger the imagination and spur their clients on to use these technologies in their own unique ways in different event environments.

At EPS, they are aiming to inspire and excite people about the evolving use of technology in the events industry and work with their clients to make their own creative visions a reality.

Protec recently introduced robotics as part of their diverse, modern palette available in the UK and drew lots of interested visitors to their open day earlier this year. On the back of this, and their growing reputation amongst high profile clients they won AV Production, Rental & Staging Company of the Year at the well-established AV Awards.

We expect to see this technology on display, but we are left guessing as to what other advanced technology might be premiered. One thing is for certain – Protec have a reputation for delivering innovative well executed events and our interest is certainly piqued!
