UAE - Fantek Industrial, part of the Equipson Group, is playing a key role at Expo Dubai 2020 by supplying all the rigging and structures needed to create audiovisual displays and performance stages in both the Spanish and Angola Pavilions.
The Angola Pavilion pays tribute to its indigenous traditions by taking inspiration from Sona geometry, the ancient art of sand drawing that has been used by generations of its citizens to transfer knowledge. Using interactive spaces and a multimedia show that combines different audiovisual technologies, the Pavilion highlights how traditional wisdom can be used as a starting point to develop innovative solutions to local and global problems. The Angola Pavilion’s central square also features a Fantek stage where leading African artists host daily performances.
Spanish company Eikonos was responsible for designing and installing the Pavilion's technical and audiovisual infrastructure. Project manager, Andrés Aguerri, says: "Having the direct support of the manufacturer from the early stages of the project allowed us to develop customized solutions that undoubtedly make the whole assembly easier."
His view was reinforced by Eikonos head rigger Justin Abio who adds: "As well as Fantek's light and resistant trusses, the company's range of accessories and components allowed us to place each element, each projector and each spotlight in exactly the right place."
Fantek products are also used in the Spanish Pavilion, which highlights sustainability and the historical connection between Spain and the Eastern World. The multipurpose hall, located in the Pavilion's Agora, was built with Fantek staging and is being used for a multitude of corporate and business events. It is also the focal point of performances by prominent artists such as guitarists Miguel Trápaga and José Maria Gallardo del Rey, Quinteto Aulos, Artefactum, Rodrigo Cuevas and Mago Migue, among others.
"The flexibility of the Fantek stage system allows us to adapt the stage to the needs and requirements of each company," said Juan Gonzalez, technical manager of the space.
