On January 1st, 2012 Eventresult was established as an independent sister company of ACS audiovisual solutions, headed by Ben Buurke as Managing Director and co-owner. Eventresult is a specialist in the field of smart IT solutions for national and international conferences.
Sister company ACS audiovisual solutions
Eventresult found its inheritance within ACS audiovisual solutions. ACS was established in the 80’s as a department in Amsterdam RAI. ACS was, at that time, taking care of all technical activities in the RAI, such as image (especially video projection )and sound, for conferences.
At that time, the congresses that were organised in Amsterdam RAI began to grow in size, ACS developed a concept to build temporary rooms to accommodate these needs for more capacity. This development supported the growth of ACS & Projects to become a fully recognised department of Amsterdam RAI. From that moment on ACS showed a steady yearly growth, with an increasing amount of projects being assigned from outside Amsterdam RAI. In 1998 Avisco was bought. Avisco is a rental specialist of audio and visual equipment to hotels and congress centres. In 1999 ACS BV was founded, with Amsterdam RAI as major shareholder. In the same year Schaay Rotterdam was purchased (nowadays known as ACS Rotterdam).
In 2004, ACS became fully independent and changed its name to ‘ACS AV Company’. Jessica Ylstra became the managing director and owner. ACS has steadily grown in terms of turnover and number of clients. To clearly define what ACS stands for; in 2007, the company name was changed to ‘ACS audiovisual solutions’.
Specialist knowledge: the rise of Eventresult
Since 2005, there has been an increasing market demand for specialised IT solutions. ACS responded to these growing demands by expanding its existing IT department, until it was decided to create an independent IT company, as a specialist in the market, which was the rise of Eventresult.
