The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, London needed a secure system to provide way-finding around the venue within the environmental policies of the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). The QEIICC instigated a tender process in line with European tender guidelines, advertising in the Official Journal of the European Community and congratulations must go to Feltech and dZine who won.

The brief was for a networked solution, run from a central location within the QEIICC and included project management of the system.

Feltech, best known for their management of major events (including the recent June G20 summit in London) won the tender for the installation, with a further contract for full technical support and maintenance over the lifetime of the equipment.

In turn, they chose the turnkey software solution from Belgian company,  dZine – strengthened by a software ‘link’ between the QEIICC’s diary system and the new signage software which enables the Centre to retrieve content from a database automatically, as part of the Centre’s event listings.

In addition to the improved efficiency of way-finding, QEIICC is also expecting to generate revenues from the sale of advertising space on the system.

The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, on London’s South Bank, has four main auditoria, seven conference rooms and over 20 smaller meeting rooms across seven floors and 2000 square metres of exhibition space.

Over a three year period, the QEIICC will have installed 64 displays.
