Blitz installs EM acoustics sound system in ExCeL London’s ICC Auditorium

25 June 2019

Leading AV and event production company Blitz, a GES company, has installed top-spec speaker equipment from EM Acoustics to ExCeL London’s ICC Auditorium. 

Blitz is the on-site supplier for ExCeL London and has worked with EM Acoustics to create the best sound experience for visitors who will use the flexible ICC Auditorium, which has space for up to 4,500 people. 

The new installation means ExCeL London is one of the first in Europe to have the new high-tech kit. The equipment forms part of the Auditorium default ‘in-house’ equipment so any clients using the space will be able to benefit from this installation as part of their tenancy. 

The impressive kit list from supplier EM Acoustics includes equipment from the company’s new HALO Arena line, which delivers the highest possible headroom from a loudspeaker – its design is perfect for the ICC Auditorium as it’s ideal for larger event spaces, fixed installation and corporate AV events. 

Jeremy Rees, CEO at ExCeL London said: “At ExCeL, we recognise the importance of delivering innovative events that provide a truly immersive, memorable experience. Increasingly technology is at the core of that approach. We are delighted that Blitz has chosen ExCeL to install this high-spec system, enabling us to deliver an enhanced experience, within our Auditorium, to our varied portfolio of clients including agencies, corporates, associations and exhibition organisers.”

Jason Sorabji, group production director at Blitz added: “Our team have the in-depth knowledge of ExCeL London’s ICC Auditorium, and we know that this new EM Acoustics equipment will take the experience to a whole new level for clients.  We can really maximise space and provide the best technical requirements for our clients.” 

Mike Wheeler, operations director at EM Acoustics explained: “The HALO-A and HALO-B systems are pivotal product releases for us, and to have a company like Blitz adopt them for a venue such as the ICC is a strong statement about the systems' performance, and the future direction EM Acoustics is heading in.  We look forward to working with Blitz and the ICC over the coming months to deliver the best audio quality possible.”
