ICMIF Rome 2022
Protec provided our AV support and set design at our recent Centenary Conference held in Rome. Aimed at CEOs and C-suite representatives from our global membership of cooperative and mutual insurance companies, the bar is high and oh boy did Protec deliver! From the spine-tingling video and emotive music to the stunning set design and seamless delivery on stage, delegates were blown away by the effect created. But with Protec, it's not just the AV set-up which is spectacular, it's the assistance and support from the whole team which makes Protec stand out from the rest. Led by Stuart Mac, every crew member cares about their work. And it shows. The delivery was immaculate and not even an unexpected hotel power cut held them back. Due to their forethought and a battery backup system, they were up and running again within a couple of minutes. As a Conference organiser, there is much that can go wrong at an event of this size, but the one thing I can always rely on to deliver is Protec. The whole team more than deserved the cheers from the appreciative audience. Bravo!
“A production the scale of BAO requires nothing but the best from all teams and suppliers. Therefore we’re happy to once again have enlisted Protec who, with their extensive experience in AV Technology in the region, took this project to the next level. The difficulties faced with a detailed stage of this magnitude and the storms we had to endure had everyone on their toes, but teamwork, dedication and in-depth knowledge ensured everyone came together and brought forward solutions for every obstacle faced. In the end this surmounted to a show like never before seen in the region, we’re very proud!”
First, I must say a big thank you for your support on my event. Your staff & crew were the most professional I have worked with for some time. From the riggers to the backline team it was a delight to work with them. Everyone loved the event and the stage setup looked great so a well-deserved congratulations to Protec. I look forward to working with you soon on my next event. Thank you!
“What another fantastic service we at ShowOff Display have had from the team at Protec. They provided and supported all of our AV technical requirements at KBB 2022 held at The NEC, Birmingham. Once again, we have enjoyed working with Ashley and the team on-site for a successful installation and total support as is Protec's standard service. I also appreciate the long dedicated service of the Protec Director, Chris Bramwell. Our business relationship has continued successfully for almost 30 years. A trusted partner on call is paramount in our industry.”
Jaguar Land Rover
"My sincere thanks to everyone at Protec for delivering exceptional support. It is rare to find such a dedicated, professional and friendly team. At every step I had 100% confidence that you would deliver a fantastic service, and I wasn't disappointed!"
“When it comes to putting on an elaborate and eye catching event, we couldn’t have been in more capable hands than those of the Protec Team. We at ADNEC can confirm, that for IDEX’s Silver Jubilee Opening Ceremony, we were not disappointed. From the professionalism of the team in planning this spectacular event, to execution, they certainly delivered everything they set out to do and more. Everyone who attended the Opening Ceremony was not only wowed by the whole spectacular, but were all sitting on edge waiting on what was coming next. It was an event that will have everyone talking for a long time to come!”
Unite With Tomorrowland 2017
“This unique concept is a super idea, which was well executed and fits beautifully with Unite’s vision. I would especially like to thank Abi and Paul from our Dubai lighting crew for executing it so efficiently and Markus from GrandMA for lending a helping hand. It was a pleasure working with them.”
“It is always a pleasure working with Protec and Fraser in particular. Working on an event the size of ARLA Propertymark takes months of careful planning and intricate details and I felt hugely supported by Fraser and his team. They are always just on the end of the phone. The whole team really bring the stage set to life each year and I always look forward to working with them.”
“Protec European Events provided excellent support in Berlin and offered terrific pre event planning advice and support. We have had very positive comments from the attendees, and also our senior leadership team who attended. The screen looked fantastic, the kabuki drop and the exhibition area were a great success. The crew did a wonderful job and we really appreciated how flexible they were onsite with changes. Thank you very much!”
“I’d like to thank Wayne and the Protec team for their amazing patience, professionalism, and the hard work you put in – we received so many good comments from all our partners which wouldn’t have been possible if you hadn’t done such an amazing job. Thanks especially for the helpful advice and smiles during the more stressful moments.”
King Faisal Foundation
“They were briefed months later than everyone else. Had five days to put it together. They came and conquered with never-seen-before enthusiasm! They are passionate about what they do, and that passion is evident in every phase of the project’s development and execution.”
“All your guys’ attitude throughout the WOC2012 conference was highly appreciated not just by us, but by our other suppliers, clients, exhibitors, venue, staff, etc. It made this complicated job look so easy and we couldn’t have pulled it off without that. A big thank you to everyone involved.”
“I have been with Nicky since last year and this is my third time in Dubai and my first time with Protec. Protec is a great company with great gear, lovely crew and everything went swimmingly. I would definitely work with Protec again! As with anything we had to make a few changes because all the communication was done via email but the guys were quick to respond and the changes were made without fuss and with great speed. We were also able to end rehearsal early last night which I always love.”
“I want to say a big thanks to you and your team for the big projects we just achieved together. Both were not simple and both required high professional skills and a great organization. But sometimes this is not enough and what makes a big difference is the wish to achieve the best possible result, no matter what, where, or in which conditions. This is what I found in all your guys and I really appreciate the way they did it. So, my biggest thanks for the support I received and for the smooth way you work.”
Jeddah World Festival
"When our client Roqu Media came to us with the brief for Jeddah World Fest we knew it was going to be an important moment in history throwing Jeddah into the international media spotlight. Jeddah World Fest was the first of its kind in many ways, the first festival in Saudi Arabia, the first large scale outdoor show, amongst many other ‘firsts’. We created a historical moment where the audience came together to produce an experience never before seen in market. When creating the show it was essential we used excellent suppliers, like Protec, who are known for their reliability and huge inventory available locally, it’s not suppliers you need when producing shows like this, it’s ‘partners’, and that’s what Protec became. With 20 years’ experience in the region they confidently coped with tight deadlines and changes to riders and pulled out all the stops to ensure Jeddah World Fest put Saudi on the map as an entertainment destination. Consummate professionals, they are an excellent choice for any event. The Manual looks forward to working with Protec again on next year’s production which will be even bigger and better!"
Jeddah World Festival
“An ambitious show the scale of Jeddah World Fest requires an excellent team to pull off successfully so it was a pleasure to work with Protec through my client The Manual. Protec have years of experience in Saudi Arabia and the whole team came on site with a professional and confident attitude. They know the pitfalls and were prepared for any eventuality. The equipment was faultless and despite the extreme weather conditions and short setup time they managed to deliver a spectacular show. It was a pleasure working with the entire team but I'd like to especially thank Luke, Robert and Frank who went above and beyond. I look forward to working with Protec again very soon and would recommend them for any future events as a technical supplier."
Sadara & Satorp
“Moment International, together with the team selected for the event managed to keep focused and in high spirits throughout the project despite the issues or time constraints that we faced. From the start of the project until the end we stayed as one unified team and I am extremely happy with the end result.”
RTA Route 2020
“Apart from delivering a memorable immersive experience for the guests, we are proud of the fact that we also got to showcase some products for the first time in the region, namely the 1800 BE Blades, which highlighted each horizontal and vertical facet of the main dome structure. A great result overall.”
Dubai Water Canal Opening
“With such a prestigious opening spectacular nothing can be left to chance. The delivery of this event by Protec did exactly that; their attention to detail was superb.”
“It’s been an absolute roller-coaster with Sensation this year. I loved the sky-rocketing energy and innovations that were in the show, and all of it would not have been possible without the support of all our partners.”
“I have two words that come to mind when I think of Wayne and the Protec team, ‘professionalism personified’ – they have creative ideas, technical agility and flexible even under “show” pressure. We have a great working relationship with them, they understand our business, they know the personalities and our goals are aligned – we make both our companies successful – now that’s true partnership.”
Unite With Tomorrowland 2018
“Our goal is to bring people from all walks of life, countries, backgrounds and unite them as one with the power of music. That is exactly what UNITE with Tomorrowland did once again and we are very happy with the feedback. It is with the help of strong partners like Protec, and many others, that have made this concept such a huge success in the UAE."
Special Olympics 2018
“With the determination shown by the competing athletes fuelling the production team to deliver the opening ceremony in an extremely short time frame and within very tight budgetary limits, Protec, Al Laith and VK furniture delivered one of the most rewarding projects to date.”
“We are very proud to congratulate Protec on being the first to purchase the GrandMA3 consoles in the Middle East and are happy that we can deliver these solutions. This is one more important step in our long-lasting relationship with Protec.”
“Thank you very much on a successful IDEX, which for ADNEC and Abu Dhabi, was the most successful ever IDEX in its history. This year’s show has broken all records, including reaching more visitors than previous years. Working with you all at Protec, was a pleasure for not only myself; but for all my team, who mentioned that it was a delight to work with such a professional and well organized and structured organization. I am sure the stress behind the scenes was well worth it in the end. What a marvellous Opening Ceremony and each day I watched the performance, I noticed even more intricate details to the show. The opening ceremony ran as smoothly as what I was hoping for and my expectations were not only met but were exceeded.”
