Solihull based Aventeq Ltd provide audio, visual, and staging for Etihad Airways Inaugural Gala.
On July 15th Etihad, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, commenced a daily non-stop service between Abu Dhabi and Rome Fiumicino Airport. After the ribbons were cut, celebrations continued with a cocktail reception and live performance at the beautiful Villa Miani estate.
Aventeq Ltd, based in Solihull, oversaw the event, attended by over 300 dignitaries, government officials, and executives from Etihad Airways’ partner airlines.
Etihad Airways’ daily service to Rome is operated using the Airbus A330-200 aircraft in a two-class configuration, featuring 22 fully-flat beds in Business Class and 240 seats in Economy Class. The exclusive evening gala project involved illuminating Villa Miani and its vast grounds, including a lake.
Aventeq provided state-of-the-art equipment on the day, which included 96 intelligent fixtures from Clay Paky, Robe & James Thomas, controlled from an Avolites tiger touch console over a WDMX network. Aventeq also utilized their brand new OV truss system for the entire backdrop consisting of two 6mm pitch outdoor LED screens and an L-ACOUSTICS Kiva ultra compact line array system incorporating the Yamaha CL5 mixing console.
The event specialists at Aventeq also provided sound & back line equipment for ‘Il Volo’, the platinum selling Italian pop trio.
This is the latest of many successful international jobs for Aventeq. They have dispatched crew and equipment to Amsterdam, France, Mexico and Turkey in the last 6 months.
Dave Garratt, a Director at Aventeq commented:
“We take a great deal of pride from our relationship with Etihad and strive to make each event better than the last. Our constant commitment to having the right expertise, along with continued investment in high quality equipment makes us the obvious choice for anyone looking for a reliable production company that will create the wow factor for any event.”
