Auditoria was engaged by Delta Sound Dubai to provide audio systems design services and to operate the audio replay system for the rehearsals and show. Our combined efforts were recognised at the Middle East Event Awards by winning the Best Sound Production category.

London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony

The London 2012 Closing Ceremony was the most challenging Ceremony we have delivered. Closing Ceremonies are rarely rehearsed in the stadium and the entire production is built overnight prior to the event, this coupled with the inclusion of some of the worlds biggest acts such as The Who, Queen, Muse, George Michael, The Spice Girls, The Pet Shop Boys, One Direction, Elbow and Jesse J, made for a perfect storm of complication and competing priorities.
