Being the technical sponsor for Mediatech this 2019, we had the opportunity to see what the exhibition held for all our techno savvy individuals. With all the hype that engulfed the prelude to the event, it was great to sit back and watch our team represent the Gearhouse Group in various panel discussions at the Black Box. 

Gearing up for the tradeshow we also supplied exhibitors with the best of the best when it came to service and professional rigging at substantial discounts. Giving the exhibitors peace of mind and allowing them to promote their brands creatively, safely and smoothly, they are guaranteed a memorable stand. With the group’s resources pooled together, we were able to ensure seamless integration, encompassing the high level of technical delivery that one would expect when it comes to a tradeshow of this quality. 

As a team of industry experts, Stuart Andrews, Johann Moolman, Robert Grobler and Nickolas Chapman candidly opened up to the industry about the intricate workings of the group. They presented on their experience, their role within the group and a glimpse into what makes Gearhouse the key player in the industry. The discussions were a holistic overview, giving the industry a glimpse into what makes the Group run with such seamless precision. How the integration of the group of companies works together, to offer a total technical solution. Re-enforcing the sentiment that “Whether your event is BIG or small, the Gearhouse Group of companies has the knowhow and services to get the job done to your specifications.” Nickolas Chapman also took to the stage to introduce the latest company to our portfolio, Showcom. He shared his vision and what Showcom has to offer the group and its clients, in terms of communication services. Overall the discussions were well received by all in attendance.

With the partnership, Mediatech offered Gearhouse’s Integration company, System Solutions an opportunity to exhibit their business platform. With their years of experience in design and systems integration, System Solutions was also there to share with prospective clients, their ability to harness aesthetics and technology. Together with creating the perfect blend of products with an innovative installation. Joining them on their exhibition stand, Gearhouse Group was there to represent the Group brand that is synonymous to the events industry, mingle with fellow industry peers and of course share the offerings of the brand as a group collective, re-enforcing their ability to serve as a full event “Technical” solution.

Being part of the exhibition for the past four years, System Solutions had an impressive offering to showcase to clients at the tradeshow, making great business connections. Along with exciting products and specials to offer visitors to the stand, they exposed the Mediatech audience to unique and affordable AV options to enhance their brand presence. As well as offering a 20% discount on their digital poster systems. Together the two companies stood together as a formidable team, providing a platform to connect, engage and network with suppliers and clients.

Furthermore, our Gearhouse Kentse Mpahlwa Academy students were proud to be part of Mediatech this year, from being visitors in the past they now had an active role in putting the technical aspects of the show together. 

It’s about connecting people and creating a network of resources that will continue the creative journey by building the industry so we can all leverage and grow!
