Europalco appoints engineers Nélio Lima and Miguel Oliveira as technical directors

Portuguese events services provider Europalco has promoted two engineers from its team. Nélio Lima and Miguel Oliveira now take on new roles of technical directors.

With over 19 years in the industry and over 12 of those with Europalco, Lima has in-depth knowledge in various areas of video and networks as well as in audio, rigging and lighting. At Europalco, he coordinates the technical areas and is also involved in commercial and project management, making decisions about future investments.

Oliveira has 32 years of experience in the industry. He joined the Portuguese company in 2017 as head of the Video Department, managing all AV teams, assessing, and testing new technologies and supporting the Sales Department. In 2021 he was promoted to project manager.

Both engineers worked on international events such as the Websummit, UN Ocean Conference, and shows for big brands like BMW and Vodafone.

Lima said: “I’m thrilled with this new challenge and to continue working with Europalco. It’s a company that takes great care of the equipment; Europalco makes great investments in state-of-the-art technology; these constant investments allow us to continue evolving”.

Pedro Magalhaes, founder and CEO of Europalco, said: “Nélio and Miguel are an asset to our company. They are talented engineers with a proven record of exceptional work. We are privileged to have them in our team”.

The engineers, who were seen on the show floor of ISE 2023 visiting partners and discovering new technologies, have a similar opinion on what the latest trends in AV for the events sector will be: augmented reality, virtual (metaverse), drones to create images in the sky, movement, and automatisation of equipment.

They also believe that there are advances in AV technology changing the parameters of live events, such as better, smaller, lighter, and more accurate equipment. The right technology makes the presentation of a new product more dynamic and allows a critical message to be conveyed in a certain way that is retained by the audience. Oliveira also confirmed that clients’ most demanded AV technology for major corporate events is high-resolution LED wall screens and interactivity with them.
