The event also attracts street food vendors, pop-up shops and cooking demonstrations. This year, the Waterfront Celebration took place on 6-7 August, and culminated in a firework display.
As with any festival or outdoor event, changing weather conditions place pressure on organisers. As the day unfolds, they also need to communicate about safety concerns, crowd control and scheduling. The organisers of the Waterfront Celebration contacted Brentwood to acquire suitable two way radios and equipment for the weekend, which is where our Motorola radio hire service came into play!
For the Ipswich Waterfront Celebration, we recommended that the team hire out a fleet of Motorola DP2400 digital radios. This is one of our favoured choices for any event that takes place in variable locations.
It includes GPS location technology, so any operator can be located from a base, without the need to speak with them directly. The DP2400 is also designed to withstand the rigors of constant and outdoor use.
ACCESSORIES AND COVERAGE
Many of the employees and volunteers at the Ipswich Waterfront Celebration needed the flexibility to work hands-free. With that in mind, Brentwood supplied comfortable 2 wire acoustic tube earpieces, to be used along with the DP2400 radios. These earpieces are lightweight and easy to use, and allow discreet or covert conversation.
Additionally, we supplied heavy duty headsets for the two way radios that could be used safely outdoors. These headsets also offer noise cancellation technology, as well as protecting the operator’s hearing. They are padded for comfortable use through a long day.
The final piece of equipment we hired was a repeater, which is important for large sites and outdoor events. The repeater dramatically increases range to ensure reliable and far-reaching radio coverage.
If your organisation sets up annual events or festivals, it may not be worth purchasing a fleet of radios just for a few days’ use each year. Instead, choosing our Motorola radio hire service or one of our many other hiring options is usually a more affordable way to access the latest technology when you need it.
Brentwood offers modern, robust two way radios and equipment on a hire basis, and we can supply all of the accessories you need too. If you’re planning an event, and you need to keep everybody talking, don’t hesitate to contact our hire team today on 01245 403520.
