11 October, 2016 saw another Audiosure Dealer Evening get off the ground where massive one-night-only specials, a chance for dealers to mingle and live entertainment were on offer.
Audiosure is known for their wide range of products and brands in the pro audio, lighting, AV and DJ markets and their extensive showroom to showcase their brands. The event took place at the Audiosure offices in Midrand with the outside courtyard outfitted with a stage and seating while the showroom was open to attendees and other products such as Vivitek projectors and Akai DAW controllers were set up in the conference room/bar area.
The stage was outfitted with a complete range of Audiosure products including a Martin Audio PA, Chauvet light fixtures, AKG microphones and Samson powered floor monitors. An Avolites Tiger Touch II and accompanying fader wing handled lighting duties while an Allen & Heath Qu-24 was the FOH audio console. Vivitek laser projectors supplied visuals to screens at the rear of the stage and on the adjacent wall of the courtyard.
The night’s proceedings kicked off with a welcome note from sales manager Greg Payne followed by an outline of the evening’s agenda. Following Payne’s introduction a dazzling light show set to music was presented to showcase Chauvet and Avolites products, programmed by brand manager Stefan van der Walt and lighting support Andre Hanekom. A wonderfully catered dinner was served thereafter. After dinner a fantastic performance by The Voice winner and AKG endorsee Richard Stirton commenced, which the crowd enjoyed immensely.
Payne then once again took the stage to give a technical presentation of the products being used at the event and thereafter AKG endorsee Jesse Clegg and band performed songs from his latest album. The crowd once again was entranced.
Finishing off the evening was a thank you note from Payne, the introducing of the Audiosure sales and brand teams and concluding with the awarding of random draw prizes to three lucky attendees.
“Our Dealer Evenings have becoming something of a yearly spectacle and we were privileged to have such an outstanding turnout for this event,” remarks Payne. “The aim of this event is ultimately to entertain and inform our customers, as well as generate sales from our Dealer Evening Specials. The event was extremely successful, due to the performances of two of SA’s best talent, in the form of Jesse Clegg and Richard Stirton, who are both AKG Endorsees. My thanks goes to our customers, our performers and our team for making this event such a wonderful success.”
