Breathe Arena at its best!

The purpose of our new 5,000sqft Arena is to showcase exhibition stands in various states of construction so that our customers can check on the build and make sure they are happy with what they have asked for before it turns up at their event! And we are delighted to say that Arena has been an invaluable asset to us over the last few weeks as we have worked on building this incredible stand designed by Dijon Designs.

The stand is for use at the DSEI 2021 event at the London Excel and everything you see was sourced by us and built by our Breathe Expo team. You can view more pics of the full stand on our Exhibitions page.

CCTV and Sound system at The Forest

We previously told you about the installation of a complete Wi-Fi network at The Forest Hotel in Dorridge, and we have just started the next stage of the new owners' huge refurbishment plan; a 30 camera CCTV system and 50 speaker sound system.

Due to the fact that we have had ladders galore, we have been working out of hours to avoid disruption to the workings of the hotel staff and visitors, so there have been a lot of 5am starts! All worth it to provide the new-look Forest Hotel with intelligently controlled, power sharing audio with 'touch of a button' Soundweb controllers.

The CCTV system means that The Forest Hotel employees and guests will have total security peace of mind from a centrally monitored, 30 camera CCTV system covering all areas of the hotel, bar, terrace and shared spaces.

Huge Wi-Fi upgrade for Solihull hotel

The Butchers Social Forest Hotel is situated in Dorridge, Solihull, and has recently been bought by new owners with a huge refurbishment plan! Part of the refurb included a much needed upgrade of their current Wi-Fi network, as the existing system was out-dated, produced poor connectivity, and had improperly installed cabling.

The Breathe Install team decided that a high-performance Draytek router, switch and access points would provide coverage and connectivity to all 14 zones of the building including bedrooms, terraces, restaurant, bar and conferencing/wedding facilities. The selected VigorAP 1060C includes a high-performance Mesh Wireless solution, with Wi-Fi 6 technology, offering up to 3.6Gbps dual-band wireless performance and up to 2.5Gb Ethernet connectivity.

For added security and QoS prioritisation, the Breathe Install team configured the system with multiple VLANs for clients, guests, conference rooms, business meetings and EPOS, and remote manage of this installation will take place via a VigorACS2 central management platform.

Welcome to Zoom Rooms

Also known as Team Rooms (depending on your virtual meeting software of choice) a Zoom/Team Room can be created using our bespoke video conferencing units that house large 55" screens and connectivity, without the need for your own laptop. You get to host a meeting via Zoom or Microsoft Teams with boardroom-quality audio, wireless content sharing, and the ease of touchscreen technology. You will also have a support team on hand to make sure your meeting goes without a hitch.

We can install this entire system safely in any room of your choice so that you get a dedicated video conferencing facility that is simple to use and provides the next level of virtual conferencing experiences.

If you need to up your game when it comes to virtual meetings, get in touch with our team today.

IBJ Awards promise to be bigger and better than ever!

We're delighted to be working with IBJ again on their next awards ceremony. It's an anniversary celebration so it's going to be a bumper edition! 

We're especially excited to be teaming up with Ray Girvan (Founder and CEO of the IBJ Awards) and Emma Murray (of Meantime Communications) once again.

We have produced some fabulous events for IBJ previously in London, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp and Paris, with some fantastically memorable details such as 8ft tall letters covered in 200 vintage lightbulbs (more about that here)!!

Always fantastic fun, always spectacular events and always a great team for the Breathe crew to work with.

We'll keep you posted with progress and of course share some pics of the finished event to show you all the exciting ideas that the team come up with! 

Not allowed to host an in-person event yet? No problem…

The problem: not being allowed to get lots of people all in one room to give them some much-needed info, training or news. 

The solution: live (or prerecorded) online streaming of your info, training or news to your audience, wherever they are.

When Covid restrictions were enforced, they put a temporary block on all in-person events across the globe, so sadly our industry came to an absolute standstill. At Breathe we chose to  diversify, and put our technological know-how to good use by setting up our secure, online digital conferencing facility. 

You can now stream your video or live presentation to unlimited delegates all over the world via our system that includes a bespoke URL and design capabilities to use your brand colours and logo, and lots of other features such as polling, social sharing, audience chat, downloads and live analytics.

We have already offered this solution to a number of our regular customers as an invaluable communication solution, with huge success, and even though we will soon be able to produce in-person events again, we are keeping our digital service in place so that you still have an alternative option to holding your event - at a place and time that suits everyone.  

Welcome to Breathe Arena

Although you may have taken a lot of time communicating with us about the minutest details of your exhibitions stand, the first time you actually see the finished product in all its glory is when it arrives at the exhibition. Well NO MORE!!

We have expanded yet again, and taken on a 5,000sqft warehouse that we have called Breathe Arena. This huge, clean space is where we will construct your stand so that you can visit it and get a feel for it before your exhibition even starts. This gives you the opportunity to work out what little extras are needed, get used to the space and check it all works correctly for your needs. 

Never before have we been able to offer this service to our Exhibition clients, so we are truly delighted and can’t wait to welcome you inside.

Our Expo Team have gone big… 5,000sqft BIG!!

We have expanded the footprint of our Exhibition team, to include a HUGE warehouse for manufacturing all of our exhibition stands in! It has taken a couple of months and lots of paint and wiring, but we now have a lovely new home for our Breathe Expo team of six carpenters. 

Now we have plenty of space for our team to create, build and store exhibition stands ready for dispatch. Not only this but the new space gives us the opportunity to expand our Products division where we create bespoke branded event and exhibition furniture for hire, including registration desks, lighting cubes and displays for every occasion. We have a number of these in stock, ready to go, and a team ready to make whatever you need in our brand new manufacturing warehouse!
