PARTNER NEWS: Vanguardia Consulting supporting AuditoriumsMeet

Vanguardia Consulting – a cutting edge design and engineering consultancy for the music and leisure industry – is the latest Partner to join with AuditoriumsMeet 2012 (30 October to 1 November, Edinburgh, Scotland).

Formed by some of the leading acoustic engineers in the entertainment industry, Vanguardia has grown to provide audiovisual, sound, acoustics and licensing services to a wide range of venues and events on an increasingly international basis.

Vanguardia has grown from a core base in the entertainment industry where it provides event licensing and sound control to numerous tours and festivals, such as Download, V Festival, Reading Festival, Isle of Wight, O2 Wireless, Bestival, and shows by artistes such as Rolling Stones, Madonna, U2, AC/DC, Muse, Take That, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga etc etc.

This ongoing event based experience has provided Vanguardia with a unique position to be able to advise and inform developers, owners, operators, design teams and contractors on the requirements and detailed design considerations for venues with an business plan including live events.

“At Vanguardia we have grown organically to include engineers and designers with skills and experience in audiovisual and sound systems as well as user experience based interface design. We are very much in step with the convergence of technology and the unification of networks to provide multimedia and data to users. But most importantly we consider how these tools impact on the experience of a space or event,” stated Mark Murphy, Associate Director at Vanguardia.

Vanguardia has provided design services to numerous projects including the O2 Arena (pictured), Wembley Stadium, The London Olympic Stadium, Nokia Concert Hall, Tallin, Leeds Arena (opening 2013), Arena Zagreb and The Royal Society of Arts amongst many others.

“We are looking forward to the conference and the opportunity to meet with and hear from different voices in the industry.”
