Aztec Event Services and the Business Design Centre (BDC) have renewed their partnership contract.
Aztec started providing AV services to the prestigious London Venue in 2019 and said their relationship had become stronger through the challenges of the pandemic.
Under the extended agreement, Aztec will continue to provide all in-house AV services to the BDC for the next three years, along with a dedicated onsite account management team to deliver production services to conference and event organisers, design agencies, exhibition organisers and their exhibitors.
Both organisations said they have experienced a strong return to the live events sector since September, with the appetite for in-person events gathering pace month on month.
The venue also boasts extensive office and showroom units for businesses, and Aztec occupies a spacious office complete with a separate AV storeroom. The AV company said that having a permanent secure storage space helps them reduce reduce their carbon footprint by reducing transportation needs and general wear and tear on the rental fleet. They also said they were continuing to invest in next generation products to provide accessible sustainable solutions such as reusable tension fabrics and moving away from timber-centric sets.
Whilst Aztec’s HQ remains in Chessington, South West London, the additional base in Islington, North London, has created increased flexibility for Aztec’s employees and significantly broadens the pool of potential new recruits, which has been a huge advantage as the company continues to rebuilds its workforce post-pandemic.
Aztec’s managing director, John Robson said: “When we first started working as the in-house AV partner for the Business Design Centre back in the autumn of 2019, we had barely got settled before the pandemic hit. To see the way both of our organisations have bounced back and worked so collaboratively with each other is extraordinary. I believe that this is testament to common values that we share and the mutual respect our teams have for each other.”
BDC executive director of venue sales, Max Bull said: “Continuing our partnership with Aztec Event Services means a great deal to the team here at the Business Design Centre. They provide an exceptional level of service to our shared clients at the venue, but also share our vision for a better future. Working closely with partners on site that support the ideals of our own business, especially when it comes to sustainability and customer service are key to seeing the success of the events taking place at the BDC. We couldn’t be more pleased to continue what is already a great relationship.”
