IT Services

Events and Consultancy

This service comprises event support, consultancy for projects and builds, and assistance with the purchase of audio-visual technology.

The Audio Visual service supports many University activities, including conferences and events. With its wealth of experience, the Audio-Visual Team will guide you through your event and advise on the best possible technology or solution.

If you are organising an event such as a conference or a high-profile meeting, for which you need the support of a dedicated Technician to advise you, please use the Audio-Visual Booking Form—tick the box labelled: ‘Please provide a technical call back for a conference or event I’m planning’, and under the ‘Further comments or request additional service or support’ section, describe your event requirements. A member of the technical support team will then contact you.

If you are an external visitor hiring a room please call the Conference and Events Team on 0161 295 5374, or email conference-com@salford.ac.uk.

Installed equipment within conference spaces comes free to use with the room hire; however, should you require additional equipment, the following charges will apply together with any setup fees (See Charges For Technician Support).

Sorry, this page is still under development.

Signage Our campus solution for digital signage has been chosen by users for its versatility and ease of use. For any project, ITS will identify the most suitable screen from its standardised range; however, screen content is created and controlled locally by the relevant school or department. Training for content creators is self-led by way of online tutorials.

You can find out more about our campus signage solution by visiting digitalsignage.com. You might also like to view the tutorial pages.
