ASEAN - Australia Special Summit


Bosch helps strengthen ties in the Asia-Pacific

In March, Sydney held the first-ever ASEAN-Australia Special Summit. Leaders from ASEAN and Australia met to discuss vital issues affecting the Asia Pacific Region such as cybersecurity, counter-terrorism, economic development and free trade.

Congress Rental Australia was chosen to support the large-scale event across multiple Sydney venues including ICC Sydney, Admiralty House and The Intercontinental Hotel Sydney. Several meetings and events took place over the two days, including The Leader’s Plenary, The Counter Terrorism Conference, The CEO Forum Roundtable and Lunch, and The Leader’s Retreat.

Congress Rental Australia utilised their own equipment, as well as equipment imported from Congress Rental Singapore and Congress Rental Germany, to produce a seamless, error-free event.

Leaders from over 10 different ASEAN countries, and Australian Prime Minister, Malcom Turnbull attended the meeting. The Leader’s Plenary was the heart of the ASEAN- Australia Summit. Each leader at the oval table was given a Bosch Multimedia Microphone, which enabled them to listen to an interpretation audio feed based on their language preference. In a large room parallel to the main meeting, Congress Rental installed 10 three-person Audipack interpreter booths. Each interpreter spoke into a Bosch idesk that was connected to a Bosch Integrus System for language distribution to the appropriate channels. Languages interpreted were English, Bahasa Indonesian, Lao, Khmer, Thai and Vietnamese.

Interpreters were also given a video feed of the current speaker on LCD screens placed in front of the interpreter booths. Video feed was captured via Bosch Dome Cameras that Congress Rental hung from the ceiling above the plenary. Each time one of the Leader’s activated their microphone to speak, one of the four 360-degree Bosch Dome Cameras would move to automatically focus on the speaker.
