Game, set and match: buk Solutions provides interpretation services for international sporting organisation

During the summer, a number of our team travelled stateside to provide a full range of interpretation services, together with associated equipment and project management for a major international sporting organisation client.

The buk team were required to support the AGM for the global sporting federation and managed the complete technical delivery of the event – now a regular annual event for us at different locations around the world.

We provided a full language interpretation system with full digital recording for two languages during the five day event, with all audio and video services provided by our team of experienced technicians.

280 push-to-talk microphones were installed at the luxury hotel venue in Florida, along with state-of-the-art voting software. With national associations from across the world represented at the meeting and a significant vote taking place, we had to ensure that an accurate, reliable and efficient voting system was in place and fit for purpose.  

To add to the adrenaline rush, some last-minute layout alterations from the client meant the team had to work through the night to guarantee the installation was completed on time and to the highest standard. 

We were faced with some space limitations as well, with the two smaller rooms within the venue presenting an interesting challenge for the team to address, fitting 20 push-to-talk microphones and interpretation booths for two languages in a very restricted space.  

However, when it was all over, the client provided some great feedback, commenting: “Thank you for your dedication to achieving our requirements once again. As always, your team of technicians were fantastic, really hard working and very patient with our demands. They were friendly and accessible at all hours of the day and they genuinely impress me more and more each year with their professionalism.”

buk Solutions, with its worldwide delivery capability, can supply equipment, interpreters and support staff anywhere in the world, coordinated from its UK office. Contact us to find out how we can help your next event.
