ISE 2018 in Amsterdam was the forum for unprecedented success as one audio visual and video conferencing project swept-up four prestigious awards.
Focus 21 Visual Communications was commissioned by AV specialist consultant, MiX Consultancy Ltd, to deliver Bayer UK’s AV collaboration project at their new headquarters in Reading’s Green Park. The project had to accommodate the needs of Bayer’s employees in an office that comprises four floors, twenty meeting rooms, a dedicated space showcasing Bayer’s latest scientiﬁc innovations and BayLab; a large restaurant and café area that opens to a large town hall space for quarterly employee gatherings.
