Eclipse announces new division
UAE: Eclipse Staging Services has announced the formation of a new division dedicated to providing in-house technical services to the hotel and venue market. Eclipse Venue Services will offer a 24/7 on-site technical support model through a dedicated team of sales and technical staff.
With the options currently being offered by suppliers to the UAE hotel industry; ‘in-house’ and ‘from off-site warehouse operation’, the Eclipse Group has recognised the potential for a ‘best of both worlds’ approach. This model aims to maximise revenue generation for the venue whilst improving the quality and range of services available to its end clients.
Alongside the in-house teams and technical inventory, this self-sufficient division will also be fully supported by the Staging Services operation. This means that additional crew, equipment and large event planning and support services will be available to the end client.
Heading up the Eclipse Venue Services management team will be regional director of business development, Justin Ledger and regional director of operations, Sacha Morazain. Possessing over 15 years of combined experience in establishing and overseeing in-house audio visual operations, they will be spearheading eclipse’s expansion into the hotel and venue market.
‘We are very excited to present this unique market offering,’ said Mr Ledger. ‘Our extensive knowledge of the hospitality approach to customer service coupled with support from the Eclipse operation means we are in a position to offer our hotel partners not only a superior on-site operational model but also a superior financial model.’
‘I can’t imagine a market better suited for the model that we will be delivering,’ added Mr Morazain. ‘Being backed by the technical strength of the Eclipse brand I am certain that we will accomplish remarkable things.’
‘Our push into the hotel and venue services market is in recognition of the projected growth in the UAE between now and 2020,’ noted Mark Brown, CEO of the Eclipse Group. ‘I believe it is an important market for us to be in and I am confident that Eclipse Venue Services will perfectly complement the Eclipse Staging Services offering.’
