The Incredible Pixel Group announces Farnborough International Airshow 2016 contract wins for Smart AV and Smart Digital

Farnborough International Airshow
Leading AV specialist Smart AV, part of The Incredible Pixel Group (IPG), has been appointed official audio visual supplier for the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) for the fifth show running. IPG sister company, Smart Digital has also been appointed as official digital screen network partner.

Smart AV, a specialist audio visual supplier to the events industry, has been serving FIA since 2008. Over the past five shows (FIA is held biennially), Smart AV has worked in partnership with the organisers to provide an integrated platform of services at the show including the live feed infrastructure, Chalet AV installations, an official audio visual installation service to exhibitors and stand design agencies, fully networked live digital signage solutions and the installation and management of all conference and seminar programmes. At the 2014 Airshow they also provided the technical assistance for the opening ceremony.  

Darren Poultney, Managing Director of Smart AV and Founder of IPG which incorporates Smart AV, comments: “We are delighted to be supporting the Farnborough International Airshow for the fifth show and eighth year running, alongside our sister company Smart Digital. We have been supporting the aerospace sector at FIA for over 10 years and we look forward to producing what we are sure will be another ground-breaking show in 2016. We have already begun our investment into new AV solutions such as curved and right-angled LED, outdoor 5.9mm LED and interactive screens and tables in varying sizes, in order to facilitate exhibitor needs at the show and have already seen a great response to this level of innovative technology when used recently at Paris Airshow.”  

Smart AV’s sister company and fellow IPG division Smart Digital has also been awarded official digital screen network partner status for the 2016 show. After working across shows such as The Dubai International Airshow, The Dubai International Boat show, ICE Totally Gaming and many more, Smart Digital is pleased to be able to offer its services to FIA 2016, dovetailing with Smart AV’s own incumbent official AV partner status.  

Smart Digital Chief Executive Officer Tim Henderson adds: “We are very pleased to be working on a bespoke digital network for FIA 2016, with our hardware partner Smart AV. We know what an important event FIA is for the aerospace industry and the digital screen network will create a crucial content platform through which, all of the sights and sounds from the event as well as breaking show news and key industry interviews will be broadcast.”  

The FIA 2016 digital screen network will also offer the show’s exhibitors a communication vehicle for the important trade days of the show, in order to facilitate business sales and deals with potential customers, through airtime packages and key brand sponsorship.  

Speaking about the appointment, Farnborough International Ltd’s Chief Operating Officer, Grahame Jones says: “Since its appointment back in 2008, Smart AV has provided a professional service to us, as show organisers, and to our exhibitors, offering a variety of innovative solutions for the show. We are happy to extend this relationship with both Smart AV and Smart Digital for the 2016 show.”
