Ascend Steps Up to Greater Heights with the Singapore Airshow 2014

Blog - SAS 2014

Time is flying and the year is steadily coming to a close as our team works hard to provide our clients a wonderful experience during the remaining months of 2013.

It has been a great year so far, and it looks like Ascend will be looking into even greater opportunities as the days pass and we inch closer to one of the three most important aviation shows in the world—the Singapore Airshow.

Having served as its Official IT Provider for the past years, Ascend is proud to announce that we will be extending our range of services and have been appointed both the Official Audio-Visual and Official IT Network Provider for the Singapore Airshow 2014!

Expect to see even more from us as we make our preparations for this spectacular event held from 11-16 February at Changi Exhibition Centre. We look forward to supplying our best AV & IT Network that will make the Airshow another unforgettable event.


Looking Into Innovation @ World Architecture Festival 2013

The annual World Architecture Festival (WAF) has taken place early this month at the Marina Bay Sands. The event saw hundreds of architects from several different countries coming together to compete for category awards and the grand title of World Building of the Year and Future Project of the Year.

Being the festival’s Official AV & IT Provider for the second year, Ascend was pleased to provide IT solutions for the event’s registration counters, setting up our Desktop Computers, Laptops and high-end Printers that assisted in the organised administration of participants, of which amounted to over 2,000.

Lighting, Projection and Full Sound Systems were installed in the event’s Main Ballroom and other halls, where keynote speakers presented their inspiring views on architecture during talks and seminars and a Gala Night that was held on the third day.

Our team also witnessed some of the admirable and innovative projects presented by this year’s shortlisted competitors in the numerous live Crit rooms that were used. Competitors were able to reach out to panelists and attendees and showcase their work through our Projection and Sound Systems.

In addition, we also assisted in providing Display Solutions for  exhibitors, finding them better methods in marketing their products and services through equipment such as our HD Display Monitors.

It was ultimately an interesting festival that provided a great insight to today’s building and design industry. We look forward to working with our client in making next year’s WAF even more of an accomplishment and would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s WAF a job well done!

IBM InterConnect 2013: An Interactive Experience

The IBM InterConnect 2013 was recently held at Marina Bay Sands from 9th-11th October. Attracting 2,500 attendees, it was a conference that brought about a better understanding into best practices around the latest trends in business and enabled organisations to connect with business and IT leaders from all over the world.

Ascend Com had the great opportunity to be a part of InterConnect 2013, providing Interactive and IT Networking Solutions and ensuring that key messages were conveyed to all participants.

Attendees had the chance to learn more about cloud, mobile, social and big data & analytic through the Touch Screen Displays mostly provided by Ascend.

A Social Photo Booth installed and connected to IBM’s Facebook page allowed participants to take a photo of themselves with a scenic backdrop of some of Singapore’s attractive landscapes such as the Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands.  These photos were uploaded onto IBM’s Facebook page and created a buzz in the social media world.

Our team were on site with our full AV, IT Networking & Multimedia support, making sure that participants were able to network with one another with minimal problems.

All in all, InterConnect 2013 was a successful event that has gathered a large audience. Ascend is honored to have had the chance to help participants in learning more about building a smarter business and enhancing communications between participants and speakers.
