Protec Group, the Dubai headquartered staging and event technology company, is celebrating a number of successes in the Middle East, following a series of recent investments by the company.
Protec has significantly added to its inventory of equipment, with brands including L-Acoustics, Digico, Clay Paky, Robe, MA lighting, SGM, disguise, Christie, Barco, Blacktrax, Notch and Watchout are just some of Protec’s preferred regular suppliers.
With additional purchases especially for its new warehouse in Riyadh, Protec KSA now offer the same preferred brands and service that it is revered for in Dubai. Protec recently provided technical support for Formula E Saudi Arabia, along with the opening of a new tourist destination, Al Qiddiya.
Based in the desert with no infrastructure in place, Protec was invited to supply the temporary structure – its 36m x 88m Supa Dome with full technical support inside the auditorium including audio, lighting, 3D video projection mapping, and rigging as well as scenic, staging and automation.
Protec is currently shortlisted for three Middle East Event Awards in recognition of its contribution to the event industry across the region including Best Technical Support for BAO Festival in Dubai and the Al Qiddiya Ceremony in Saudi Arabia, and Best Event Technology for its robotics stand at GITEX 2018.
Instilling more confidence in the upward trajectory of the Protec group is the return of several key staff members which have re-joined the company bringing a renewed energy and invigorating the team with their ambition and creativity.
With decades of experience Protec welcomes back Rick Wade, Nick Groves, Simon Travis, Abi Bates, Nina Badr, André Opperman and Jason Strange who will be fulfilling roles from project management to business development.
Following Saudi’s successful expansion, focus is moving to the UK based Protec European Events. With access to the group’s inventory of equipment already at hand, Protec has now acquired new premises more than doubling the warehouse space and offering a 68,000 square foot of storage. Plans are in place to turn the new warehouse space into a new staging and scenic department and storage for the growing inventory.
