Farnborough, United Kingdom, August 29, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- As the world’s largest temporary exhibition the show attracted over 285,000 visitors with over US $88.7billion worth of orders signed during the show.
All this requires a resilient, effective and reliable IT infrastructure with knowledgeable technical support.
Response IT provided on-site IT support for the organisers and exhibitors.
Andy Coulson, Head of Operations for Farnborough International said: “It’s vital given the size and reputation of the Farnborough International Airshow that exhibitors and the organising team have access to first-class IT services with excellent technical back-up that they can rely on. Response IT understood perfectly the needs of the show and provided a solution to meet them.
The scale of the Farnborough Airshow means that each show has a two year lead time. Response IT’s £100,000 contract with FIL sees them supplying the servers, desktop computers and infrastructure year-round to ensure that the organising team can put together such a mammoth spectacle.
Simon Rafferty, Managing Director of Response IT commented: “Following our work with Farnborough International Ltd, we are delighted to have been appointed as the official IT supplier to the Farnborough Airshow. We have received very positive feedback from exhibitors who found the provision of fast and effective on-site IT support invaluable in helping them have a successful show.”
