Lincoln AV Hire for Outdoor Event

When the UK's leading DJI retailer - Heliguy were arranging one of their Emergency Services Roadshow near Lincoln, Ben from Heliguy contracted NAV to provide the audio visual hire, PA sound equipment and technical support for their event.

The roadshow was attended by over 50 people from the main emergency services, including representatives from over half of the UK’s police forces. The event also served as the official launch of the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise, a drone specifically designed with public safety, emergency and search & rescue use in mind. The sucessful day featured a number of presentations and live demonstrations, both indoor and outdoors, showcasing the latest DJI products.


It was clear from the outset that the DJI kit was going to be the ‘star of the show’ however it was also obvious the audio visual visual elements required to successfully demonstrate the DJI products, needed to be good quality to allow the products being demonstrated to be seen and the presenters to be heard. Careful selection of the type of AV kit required was essential, if any one element was not up to scratch, there would be a risk of the products or presenters being overshadowed on the day by technical problems.

After receiving the technical brief on the audio visual hire requirements from Ben at Heliguy, our AV Hire Team submitted a highly competitive quote, specifying PA hire sound equipment and display screens in the three main demonstration areas. The main hanger was to be the main stage for the day, for which we provided a high brightness Panasonic laser projector and a 10ft wide projection screen as there was ambient light that could not be restricted or controlled. A 4x speaker PA system with a 16 channel mixing desk and 5 microphones took care of all the sound requirements. Two additional outdoor demonstration zones were also equipped with smaller PA systems and radio mics. A 43” LED screen in each zone completed the playback set-up.

As with any live event the key to a slick, trouble free presentation relies on teamwork. However good the kit might be, great technical support is key to success. Our Event Technicians supported the presenters, discreetly operating the hire kit in each zone throughout the event. Any issues that arose were swiftly dealt with before they even became apparent to the audience. As you’ll read below that level of support contributed to what was a highly successful event.


Our client was kind enough to leave us a 5 star review on Google.

'We recently hired NAV to supply AV equipment to a large indoor and outdoor event. The technicians (Dan and Sam) arrived promptly and were an absolute pleasure to have on site and as the event organiser, they couldn't have made the process any easier. They were slick with their setup and testing, then remained on hand through-out the day to ensure that the equipment functioned correctly. I must admit, I was astounded at the high standard of professional equipment which made all the difference in successfully delivering the event.'
