“The Australian Turf Club wanted to set a benchmark both nationally and internationally for its grandstand both from a raceday and non raceday events perspective” Mark Flanagan, Executive General Manager Property Development of the ATC noted. “In addition, we wanted to ensure that punters attending the races were receiving all the information, and more - they could receive it either at home or at a pub. A centralised system which allowed us to be flexible with our offering as trends changed and as the masterplan for the spectator precinct developed - was also at the forefront of our thinking. The P.A. People combined with NDY have delivered everything we were hoping in the system which is also easy to use and manage. We believe we now have the pre-eminent Audio Visual systems in the world to service our clients and use as a base for future expansion of the system.”
