L'evento si sviluppa in 10 ore di brainstorming collettivo e 6 talks ispirazionali con 500 giovani coinvolti in oltre 80 tavole rotonde e interventi in diretta streaming. Ognuna delle sessioni è introdotta da un talk ispirazionale che introduce la tematica e passa poi la parola ai tavoli, chiamati a sviluppare idee e visioni. A fine giornata viene redatto e stampato il "manifesto dinamico", curato dall'intelligenza artificiale Lee, creata dal team di Visionary Days.

Right after India’s event industry is slowly getting back on track, rental companies are keen to invest on new inventory. Chandigarh based rental company recently purchased the advanced RCF HDL 50-A line array (8 modules) along with RDNet Control 2. We’d heard so much about RCF that we decided to take a serious look at what they offer,” said Manpreet Singh, owner of Audio waves Sounds, Chandigarh. “After meeting the RCF team from Hi-Tech Audio Systems and hearing their systems firsthand, we knew it was the right fit for both us and our clients.” “The HDL System is an excellent series from RCF, with effective networked control and a fast and easy rigging system. The astounding sound-quality and the unbeatable value, makes the HDL system a fast- selling series in India”, states Ganesh Thapliyal, Senior Application Engineer, Hi-Tech Audio Systems. Ganesh continues, “We have introduced the HDL 50 system to Audio Waves Sounds through proper technical training. In this session we have covered about proper system deployment, rigging angles as per venue and how to work with the help of RDNet Control 2. Our agenda as a RCF distributor is to provide easy audio solutions to our clients and such after sales training is our way to support them.” Ganesh Thapliyal was assisted by Satyam Rajvanshi, Application Engineer from Hi-Tech Audio Systems to conduct the demo for team Audio Waves Sounds. Right after the purchase, the brand new RCF HDL 50-A was put into action at a grand wedding event. Live events, corporate gigs and weddings are regular clients of Audio Waves Sounds. RCF HDL 50-A will provide a much advantageous opportunity for Manpreet and his team to provide broader audio solution to their clients. “Another landmark event where we used the RCF HDL 50-A system was at Investors Summit 2021 under the leadership of PM Narendra Modi. It was held at Himachal Pradesh and a prestigious event to be associated with for our team”, shares Manpreet Singh. Manoj Kontay, Sales Manager of Hi-Tech Audio Systems has been closely working with Audio Waves Sounds to make them acquainted with RCF HDL series. “We have organized proper after sales demo for Audio Waves Sounds for the newly invested HDL 50-A series.

The Bazar is a unique place inside the Krasnaya Polyana resort in Sochi (Russia), which combines a restaurant, nightclub, and karaoke bar. The Bazar nightclub brings a thunderous beat to Pop, R'n'B, and deep house music genres. The music program also includes themed parties, such as jazz performances, stand-up comedy, and much more. RCF Russian distributor ARIS developed the audio solution for Bazar providing the best acoustic performance. The task included isolation from external noises, between the Bar and Karaoke areas, and adjacent buildings. Despite the tight deadline, both sound insulation and system installation were deployed on time. Evgeny Shuev, Head of ARIS’s Bureau of Acoustic Researches and responsible for system design and acoustic simulation with ARIS Acoustician Vasily Aleshkin, responsible for sound insulation (measurements and calculation), carried out the system design and simulation in accordance with the requirements of the international standard ISO 3382-1:2013 "Acoustics. Measurement of room acoustic parameters. Part 1: Performance spaces", as well as the related domestic GOST R ISO 3382-1:2013 standard.

's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands - The Smèrrig Halloween Festival was celebrated with three stages. The event is an institution in Den Bosch and this year's edition attracted around 11,000 fans to the Brabanthallen. In a spooky atmosphere, many nationally known DJs and music acts provided the atmosphere and party mood. Audio equipment from RCF provided the perfect sound on three out of four stages. Ultrasound Productions from neighbouring Tilburg, a long-standing user and official dealer of RCF, was responsible for the stage construction and event technology.

Together with audio designer Wouter Smits, Ultrasound Productions took care of the rigging, calibration and support of the systems during the event.

A total of four stages were available to the acts in the Brabanthallen. One large main stage and three smaller stages, one of which was designed as a 360° stage.

Geert Maes, Sales Manager at Ultrasound Productions, commented on the production: "We have been using RCF equipment for many years and were able to cover almost the entire production with our stock. RCF's loudspeakers are user-friendly and easy to use, and feature many clever rigging solutions that simplify set-up and tear-down. The sound of the systems is of course, as always with RCF, very convincing. As always with RCF equipment, we used RCF's own control tool RDNet, which simplified the handling of the whole installation and can be used to successfully implement trickier setups like the 360° Stage 2."

On the largest stage, the Mainstage, 2x 10 RCF HDL 50-A 4K units, the largest and most powerful line array module in the HDL range, were used, left and right of the stage as line arrays. The deep sounds were provided by 12x RCF SUB 9007-AS subs. 2x RCF TT 5-A were used as infill, 2x RCF TTL 6-A units as outfill. The monitoring on stage was realised by the Ultrasound Productions team with 6x RCF TT 25-CXA monitors and 2x RCF SUB 9004-AS subs. 1x RCF Control 8 unit with RCF's own RDNet control system was used for control.

Stage 2 was designed as a 360° stage, which posed some challenges for Ultrasound Productions to ensure even audio dispersion for the audience while still providing sufficient separation from the other stages. Again, the team used an RCF Control 8 unit with RDNet to ensure perfect tuning. The audio system consisted of 2x 10 RCF HDL 30-A units as line arrays, 12x RCF SUB 9004-AS subs, 2x RCF TT 22-A units as infill and 8x RCF TT 08-A as outfill. For on-stage monitoring, 4x RCF TT 25-SMA monitors were used.

The third stage was conventionally equipped with frontal sound reinforcement. Ultrasound Productions used 4x RCF TTL-6A modules as main PA plus 4x RCF SUB 9007-AS subs and 2x RCF TT 25-CXA units for monitoring on stage.

Raubling, Germany - BORA, the company that invented the cooktop extractor systems for kitchens in private homes and restaurants, recently moved into its new office building in Raubling, Bavaria. The building’s remodelling was assigned after finding a winning architect with an architectural competition. The building was completely rebuilt with resource-saving construction in mind, an intelligent façade was constructed, and a 9th floor was added. On the top floor, a multifunctional room was integrated, which also functions as a staff canteen. BORA uses the space for product presentations, but external companies use it for their purposes as well. To give the room the sound possibilities and maximise its diverse usage, BORA founder Willi Bruckbauer and the installation company Musik Mayer GmbH & Co KG from Aiging in Chiemgau (Germany) decided on a sound system from RCF.

Working alongside Gareth Wildman’s Stage Tec as they frequently do, John Southee’s Peterborough based company populated the 12 x 10-metre Alidome stage with two hangs of eight HDL 30-A active two-way line array modules. These were underpinned with powerful 2x18 RCF SUB 9006-AS on the ground in front of the stage, while across the stage lip were RCF’s reference monitors.

Wuppertal, Germany - The arts centre Immanuel, housed in the rededicated church building of Immanuelskirche in Wuppertal (Germany), impresses with a versatile and innovative programme that also features experimental events. The stage design in the house itself is as varied as the centre’s programme. To prepare for all event possibilities, the venue management opted for permanently installed loudspeaker systems from RCF and combined them with mobile components. As a long-standing partner, taking care of day-to-day operations in the areas of audio and stage technology, Guido Ogrzewalla’s company Safe in Sound was commissioned with planning and installation of the new system.

St James the Apostle Parish has proudly served its local Catholic community in Hoppers Crossing for over two decades. Mindful of the rapid population growth of Melbourne’s outer western suburbs at the turn of the century, local parish priests from the nearby St Peter Apostle Mission purchased a ten-acre wheat paddock, which would become the future site of St Peter Apostle Primary School and its resident church, St James the Apostle Parish. Originally constructed in 2000, the church has become a multicultural hub of worship and community activities. Late 2019 saw the church enter a complete rebuild phase, with the structure being redesigned from the ground up to accommodate modernized facilities and a growing community base. As part of the redesign, AV professionals at RTR Productions were consulted on supply and setup of a new PA system that would meet the church’s needs. An RCF HDL 6-A line array system was chosen for the parish and installed by integration specialist Digital Link Solutions. Drew Menard, General Manager of RTR Productions, explains why the RCF HDL system was chosen: “As the parish is a multicultural space, attendees are often people for whom English is a second language, making voice reinforcement a priority.
