Riedel Partners With Slush Conference

News Image
Riedel Communications has supplied the radio communications infrastructure for the 10th annual Slush conference, which took place in Helsinki late last year.

Slush, which draws high-profile speakers and almost 20,000 attendees, is a celebration of entrepreneurship and a meet-up for the global business startup community, bringing together leaders in the tech scene for two days of presentations, competitions, and mentoring activities.

For the event, Riedel supplied 200 Hytera digital mobile radios, 75 headsets, and a UHF repeater, along with on-site support. Slush crew relied on the equipment to deliver the communications that facilitated work between the best producers in Finland and first-time volunteer radio users; from giving the cues for Slush's signature lasers to organising the access control and recycling point instructions.

"We've heard Slush described as 'Burning Man meets TED,' and it really is brilliant! From the first Slush in 2008, our mission has been the same: Help the next generation of founders move forward," said Mafer Morante, Producer of Slush. "An event as complex as Slush naturally has crew communications challenges, and we could not have pulled it off without the support of Riedel's top-notch radio equipment and amazing engineering team, which delivered the most solid communications system in the history of the event."

"In just a few short years, Slush has grown to become THE gathering for investors and startup founders alike, and this year's event was no exception – drawing more than 2,600 startups, 1,500 venture capitalists, 600 journalists from more than 130 countries, and 1 million livestream viewers," added Marc Schneider, Sales Director Global Events at Riedel. "Riedel was honored to play a critical role in this event, which is a tremendous resource and influencer in the global business community."
