Kilowatt AV brings the best of both worlds to Uber’s Tech for Safety Summit

South Africa:

Kilowatt AV recently catered to a hybrid production at Uber’s Tech for Safety Summit. Taking place on 22 October at Levelthree Premium Venue in Kramerville, Johannesburg, the event was attended in-person by 120 people and joined by 2,000 others via livestream. The topic was tackling Africa’s most pressing safety-related concerns, which have now been further complicated by the Covid-19 pandemic.

A client for Uber South Africa for the past three years, Kilowatt supplied the design, manufacture and full technical equipment to support the event. With the participation of various leaders, innovators and talent across the spectrum, and journalist and former radio presenter Redi Tlhabi stepping in as the master of ceremonies, the event incorporated numerous speakers and panels both at the venue as well as interacting via a livestream. While social distancing measures were in place, Kilowatt AV utilised equipment to create an enticing atmosphere and the important visual element. This included the use of an Absen 2.9mm D2V LED screen, of which the company owns 400 panels. “The setup for the LED was pretty straightforward with a 16:9 format of 4.5m x 2.5m,” explained Neil Zaayman, chief operating officer at Kilowatt AV. “We've always been very happy with Absen, it’s a solid product.”

While Kilowatt AV has worked on numerous virtual and hybrid events since the pandemic, this was the seventh with a live audience. “I think everyone in our industry knows exactly what we are going through, but we are tenacious people and the Kilowatt AV team have kept a positive outlook right from the start,” furthered Zaayman. “It's important to keep the momentum going, so we have focused our energy towards offering various services for our clients.”

In Cape Town, Kilowatt AV has created a new purpose-built venue at the Avenue Studio, Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront, which has played host to various corporate events and awards. During the lockdown, the company also started manufacturing contemporary flat-pack furniture, which has turned out to be an exciting journey into a completely new industry. “I think as an industry we've been presented a golden opportunity to change our behaviour and re-assess how we engage with clients, suppliers, staff and freelancers,” Zaayman concluded.
