Main Event Entertainment Group (MEEG), located in Kingston, Jamaica, has recently acquired a Martin Audio MLA/MLX multi-cellular array system.

According to MEEG, this acquisition has further cemented the brand – which has been growing steadily for 15 years – as Jamaica’s premier and most technologically advanced production company.

Discussing the company’s vision, CEO Solomon Sharpe explained: “Main Event is a full-blown experiential marketing company that has grown organically. The company operates as small internal business units, thus allowing us to deliver a holistic brand experience to our clients from the root to the fruit. We work with numerous corporate giants in Jamaica and have supported major campaigns and activations from above-the-line advertising to below-the-line marketing strategies.

“Over the years, we have produced everything from major festivals to executing multi-level engagements for the MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, Events) market. Jamaica is positioned as a very great market for those kinds of events.”

The company’s large Martin Audio purchase included 28 Multi-Cellular Loudspeaker Array (MLA) enclosures and four Multi-Cellular Loudspeaker Array Downfill (MLD) enclosures along with 16 MLX Hybrid Horn/Reflex subwoofer enclosures.

Sharpe added: “Our investment in Martin Audio fits us perfectly at this time, especially in terms of outperforming rival companies. We had another large-scale audio system, but when we looked at the scope for growth in the marketplace in terms of what was coming up on the riders for visiting international artists and local corporate events, we knew we had to go for the very best audio quality, event boundary noise control, cutting edge technology and brand name recognition to the international marketplace.”

“We are the number one brand in our market, so we wanted to keep our choice of PA consistent with that. We are proud to say there’s no other system of this calibre in Jamaica. We’re building a great touring rig, not just for Jamaica, but for other opportunities in the Caribbean. One of the main uses for this Martin Audio system will be for our major corporate concert events and festivals. We are a very visionary company and are always looking for opportunities for growth. Our clients can do any kind of event they dream of, knowing we will deliver ‘a phenomenal experience’, bringing them the best in the world.”

Summing up, Sharpe concluded: “We’re the champions of Jamaica. With this Martin Audio system, we can dominate any venue in the Caribbean.”
