Continued Investment

Last year saw some major investment in our hire inventory. We realised that our customers need for brightness and HD content playback was becoming of paramount importance to you all. We have subsequently added Christie 8.5K projectors into our rental stock, to support this investment we also purchased all new video data-cabling infrastructure. Sound also saw some extra equipment arrive in the form of new Sennheiser G3 handheld and lapel radio microphones. Vision wise all new monitors arrived meaning we can offer 32”,43”,60” and 80” to you and we have invested in Roland new vision mixers. Robe lighting continues to be popular with the addition of some new conventional lighting to the rental stock.

As you can see we have been busy working a way on bringing you a new site that will help you with your AV hire needs and buying lots of new exciting AV equipment. That is not all we have been doing…..!!!

New Location

We have moved to new bigger premises.
Only 20 minutes from our old warehouse, our new Eastleigh based facility has opened up many new opportunities for both Moxhams and our customers. Our bigger warehouse allows us to easily process larger hires with designated preparation areas and of course continue to add new and exciting technology to our inventory.

New Demonstration Area

Our big announcement, that we are all very excited about, coming early this year, is our NEW demonstration space. We will have a fully equipped demonstration space 8m x 12m where customers can come along and see the newest products in action. We are the only company in the region with a permanent demo space of this size.

While on the subject of sharing exciting developments we have recently had some new faces join the Moxhams team, Maruo Posani joins as warehouse supervisor. Mauro has moved from London where he was a senior technician to take up the position and we welcome Tom Walters as our new AV apprentice.

Mapping the World – Business South Annual Conference 1024 1024 moxhamsavhire

Mapping the World – Business South Annual Conference

One of the most important dates in the South Regions business calendar is the Business South Annual conference. The conference took place on 3rd July at the Ageas Hilton. Now in its 10th year this conference allows the most influential business people in the region to meet, discuss and hear a diverse range of keynote speakers.

Moxhams provided all of the production elements of the conference.
Project Manager Richard Squire comments “This was an important year for the Business South conference as it hit its 10th anniversary mile stone. I felt that I needed to find a way to mark the occasion and do something a little different to previous years. Introducing a three dimensional environment as a backdrop to the conference was an interesting concept we all explored”.
Squire went on to design a set that allowed for a visually interesting opening to the conference and also a practical layout that allowed all delegates to see and obtain all the important information from the presentations.

Video mapping was used to wrap the opening VT around a 4 meter sphere, in addition to this projection surface a centre screen was used to link the whole opening together. The staging came in the form of a round 3m stage to the right of the space with a catwalk style element linking to it.

Head of Events Kevin Woods commented, “Video mapping is an exciting way to communicate a message. In an day and age where modern technology is at the forefront of everything we do in our daily lives, the days of projecting PowerPoint’s on a single screen have long gone. Delegates expect to be visually stimulated and for information and data to be presented in a new and exciting way”.

Robe Lighting was the main tool used to light the stage and venue.
Colour washed walls and staging area helped to focus delegates attention towards the stage area.
Moxhams also provided, Sound & Video content creation for this event.

Theming to Remember – Boat House 7 1024 1024 moxhamsavhire

Theming to Remember – Boat House 7

Moxhams Create Events team helped to transform Portsmouth’s historical Boat House Seven restaurant into a Victorian street scene for their Christmas Celebrations.

Boat house seven, a listed venue that once was used for building small crafts for the Royal Navy, Now a restored restaurant and event space, host a series of Christmas themed parties throughout December.

The brief was to transport guests to an era of Charles Dickens, creating a world for character actors such as Ebenezer Scrooge & Bob Cratchit to exist. The design had to be realistic and tactile to last the duration of December.

When creating the design for this project the first thing the Moxhams Creative Events team had to consider was the listed status of the venue. This in its self had instant restrictions on what could be created. The other important factor that had to be considered was that the venue was still in operation during the day as a restaurant. Events Designer Colin Osborne said “ This particular project threw up some interesting challenges for me. I was aware that I needed to create a world that would transport people back to a Victorian age from the moment they walked through the door. The question was how do you achieve this in such a big space that also has a multi purpose use throughout the event period. Any design has to allow practically for the daily restaurant activities to continue while creating the evening wow factor. The concept of creating a street scene leant itself remarkably well to this design challenge.”  

The idea of the Victorian street scene ticked all of the boxes for this particular event. The design team worked together to investigate, research and create a street scene that would be representative of a street of this period. As guests were going to be within touching distance attention to detail was of great importance – along with the need to durability of the build.

During the fit upstage the restaurant was still in operation, the set had to be designed and constructed in a way that would allow for minimum disruption during the onsite build.

The street was constructed using a series of panels to create each building shape, each building was two stories high. Polystyrene was fixed to the front of each section for texture, windows and door ways could be inscribed or extruded to make sure the set had a three-dimensional effect. Each brick was individual hand carved into the Polystyrene.

After three months of building it was time to bring the idea to life. A total of three days on site allowed Moxhams technicians to install all the theming and make sure all the final touches were complete to a extremely high standard. Practical lighting was added to windows to bring the street to life. Theatrical lighting was used to wash the entire street to transform the venue into a magical street scene. The end of the street was completed by a star night sky with a big bold moon.

SALES AND EVENTS EXECUTIVE Kim Marsh said, “ it was a pleasure to work once again with Moxhams Creative events. The design exceeded all of our expectations. We received great feedback from our guests attending our Christmas events. Colin and the team provided us with a personal service and instilled the upmost confidence that they would deliver a high quality product. Great team, Great service”
