Company Update

Impressive Pyrotechnics

Editorial in 'South East Business' August 2011 edition

It’s good to let your hair down occasionally, and for Epsom-based Convergence AV that means moving out of the standard hotel or conference venue and into a high-tech theatre – or even the park.

Convergence AV is well known for the high-level technical skills it brings to providing sound, lighting, staging, video production, signage and special effects for conferences, award ceremonies and other events.

For technical producer Matt Barry, though, the real fun comes when the company organises an annual event at the Cambridge Corn Exchange, which features a stage that rises and falls and fly bars that allow sets to be dropped in and out at will.

“We like the opportunity to be creative and although we have been doing the event at the Corn Exchange for six years now we always try to do something different in order to increase the ‘wow’ factor,” said Matt.

The company has also organised major outdoor events, including a big musical extravaganza in Richmond Park that involved lighting the White Lodge and providing impressive pyrotechnics in front of the impressive façade of the former royal hunting lodge.

“We pride ourselves on being flexible and on providing superb staging, lighting and sound effects for anything from a small presentation to an outdoor concert,” explained Matt.

“While conferences and other indoor events are our main business, we are able to tackle all sorts of other events and we enjoy the challenge of providing a really exciting spectacle backed up by high quality sound and lighting and a few top drawer special effects.”
