Midwich releases a new brochure to highlight the potential in the hire and rental market

United Kingdom: AV broadliner Midwich showcases a range of high-end projection, AV and pro audio products that can yield a high rental return for businesses. To highlight the potential in the hire and rental market, the distributor has selected the latest technologies that cater to the entertainment and corporate events industry, from high-end projectors to video wall displays and screens; technical AV setups; video processors, controllers and consoles; switchers and mixers and practical setup accessories. The further the advances in AV technology, the bigger the impact staged shows can have on their audiences. A well-thought-out AV installation brings a show to life and creates a truly engaging and memorable concert or corporate event — placing the organisers centre stage at the forefront of technology, while creating a valuable brand impression on their target market. For a company or organisation staging one off or infrequent events, investing in high-capital AV setups does not make financial sense — leading to a wealth of opportunities within the rental and staging hire market. Event organisers wanting to make a great impression through successful stage shows have created a market need for specialist companies offering knowledge, support and the short-term hire of the latest AV staging products and solutions. The new guide illustrates how Midwich is able to offer full solution packages from a broad range of vendor partners all from the one source. Businesses wanting to provide high-end rental installations to customers in the events industry can speak to Midwich to find the latest technologies and to discover their many applications within the hire market.
