Special Events & Product Launches
Hire Intelligence Technology Rentals work with a lot of Event Agencies, Creative Agencies, and Experiential Marketing Agencies, and we know that organizing a new product launch or other similar special event usually requires precise execution combined with much pomp, fanfare and creativity to create a positive buzz in the market. These events are rare occurrences and need a detailed plan and implementation strategy to ensure the company (or client) is well represented and the right type of messages emanate from the event.
One of the important features in such events is the use of technology to convey your message, provide some ‘wow factor’, or drive interaction. By renting (rather than purchasing) incorporating top of the line IT and audio visual equipment.
Renting IT and audio visual equipment can allow a company to not have to invest heavily and still wow the crowd with some fancy equipment and put on a creative digital experience, as part of the overall show. Tablets such as iPads, and phones (Samsung Galaxy or Apple iPhones) can be used to demo software, show a few slides, or data capture/feedback forms. Mobile devices such as phones and tablets can also support ‘point of sale’ (PoS) devices to support any sales at the event. You can also hire touch screen monitors, touchscreens, Totems, or large TV screens to present & interact during the event, and better yet you can set up interactive video walls, or LED Posters to create a lasting impression.
Virtual Reality & the Covid-19 Pandemic
With the current COVID situation affecting Events, Exhibitions and Training Opportunities, companies and the general public are looking into alternative methods of carrying on within the new normal. Virtual Reality Events and Virtual Reality Training are becoming more and more popular as an alternative for in-person Events and Training that cannot currently go-ahead.
When looking at Virtual Events benefits, cost saving, time saving & global reach (therefore reducing your global footprint) are the obvious standouts. However, collection of feedback and ease of tracking user results also give you instant benefits over a physical event option.
Studies over the previous year have been proving that VR-Training is both more effective & more cost-efficient than in-person training methods. V-learn concepts, have proved to increase confidence & provide less distraction than classroom or e-learning alternatives.
We can offer solutions for Virtual Reality Hire & Augmented Reality Hire, see our full range of Virtual Reality Equipment Hire, including a full Oculus Range, HTC, Samsung & Microsoft products and solutions.

When Hire Intelligence was approached by an experiential agency with an idea for a product launch, the brief was to have 40+ iPad tablets in a room displaying a holding page but then simultaneously playing a video detailing the product being launched which would also be simultaneously projected on two large screens at either end of the room with audio passing through the venues PA system.
Hire Intelligence came up with a solution. After numerous apps for iPad in the App Store were tested, one was found which did what was required but relied heavily on a very good wireless network. Past experience had shown that Xirrus wireless access points would suit the requirement, thus one of these was paired with the 40 or so iPads running the app and an iPad HDMI adapter was used to feed the video and audio from one iPad to the projection and audio systems.See others
