Dave Crump to take part in BikeFest 2023
In just two weeks’ time, Creative Technology EME’s CEO, Dave Crump, will once again be donning his Lycra, with an eclectic bunch of fellow industry ‘heavyweights’ and setting off on BikeFest, a not insignificant cycling challenge in Spain.
Covering almost 400km along the Mediterranean coastline, Dave and around 20 industry peers, will take on this impressive ride raising vital funds for industry charities, Backup Tech, Music Support, and Stagehand.
Starting in Valencia on January 27, the team will cycle 140km on day one to Peñiscola, followed by 130km on day two to Tarragona, and a final 95km on day three to Barcelona, finishing at Barcelona Fira on January 29 to mark the start of ISE 2023.
“As those who know me know, I’m an occasional cyclist, and a huge supporter or Backup and the work done by ‘We Make Events’ during and since the pandemic. This will be a tough but amazing journey,” he says, “but I am someone who needs a challenge to encourage me to work off the Christmas pounds and doing it for such a worthy cause is a massive bonus.”
ISE is always a big event for Creative Technology and in 2023 the company’s rapidly growing Systems Integration division will be exhibiting for the first time – showcasing some of their outstanding installations from around the world, from spectacular immersive environments to virtual production stages and everything in between. You can meet the global CT Systems Integration team at Stand 5G225.
“Creative Technology is well-known for its spectacular productions in the world of live events, but even though our work in the systems integration market has been happening for some time now, and is equally impressive, so far it has been much less visible to the market,” Dave concludes. “If you are coming to ISE we hope to see you there but irrespective of that please get online and make a donation to support me and our industry friends pedalling for this worthy cause.”
