To support the presentation Mansveld Expotech realized the projectors, projection screens, sound, lights and camera registration to be able to look back at the assignment.
During the hackathon Mansveld Expotech realized the flow and data infrastructure for 50 groups of 10 people. One of the challenges is to build the facilities in such a way that they can cope with the enormous load.
In addition to the hackathon, Mansveld Expotech installed the technology for the hospitality lounge. In this room, equipped with a kitchen and DJ booth among other things, Mansveld Expotech took care of the lighting, sound and power supply.
