Avesco Group secures Commonwealth Games contractAvesco's group business development director, Dave Crump.
The Avesco Group has secured a major contract to supply AV services to Manchester 2002, for this year’s Commonwealth Games events. Negotiated by Group Business Development Director, Dave Crump, it will become one of the largest single projects ever undertaken by Avesco, and has earned the company the status of ‘Official Provider of Audio Visual Services to the Manchester 2002 XVII Commonwealth Games.’

Few UK companies have the resources to be able to service such a wide range of venues and sporting activities simultaneously, and Dave Crump confirmed that the implementation should require participation from almost every company within the Group - notably Screenco, MCL Manchester and Dimension Audio. Crump himself will be co-ordinating the overall project as well as the Screenco activity, while Jamie McAffer will be project managing for MCL Manchester and Mark Boden for Dimension Audio, for whom designer George Glossop will be specifying the systems for the various events. A crew chief will be appointed for each venue.

Dimension will also have a representative, Steve Turner, based in a site office at Commonwealth House in Manchester City Centre for the duration of the build-up to the Games. At its height, the Group will be supplying services to 17 venues - including pre-Games Test Events - and will have a crew of up to 88 personnel stationed in Manchester for the build-up. They will also feature heavily in the road events, such as the Marathon, Triathlon, Cycling and Walks.
