As well as the new showroom the entire facility was renewed and extended with new ergonomic workspaces, a state of the art service centre, hospitality area and static displays. Finally the warehousing area was extended, allowing the company to carry more local stock and improved to become more efficient.
Loyal customers and distinguished interstate guests enjoyed a creative timecode show incorporating the latest releases from premium suppliers while enjoying the team’s hospitality and catching up with industry colleagues.
“We are celebrating our 25th year of being in business but we don’t stop investing and expanding” commented Emmanuel Ziino, Founder and Managing Director of Show Technology. “Our new showroom shows our faith in the Queensland market. It will enable us to significantly support our local clients more than we ever have. Coupled with the extra staff we have added in recent years we feel we can offer excellent solutions locally with extra support from our Australia wide team as required. We welcome industry professionals to make the most of our facilities and to experience our products and their features first-hand.”
