CGA Integration - September/October 2016 Newsletter

Welcome to CGA Integration’s autumn newsletter, the season of the Hospitality Industry’s shows is now well and truly upon us. We hope that we will have the opportunity to catch up with many of our clients at these events, but if you would like to arrange to meet for a coffee to discuss a specific project then please do get in touch.

Whilst thinking specifically about new restaurant design, don’t forget the importance of audio and the role it can play in helping to deliver the total brand experience. If you get a chance please read the latest blog piece I have written; Is that music to their ears? where I consider the so often missing piece of the sensory experience in inspiring restaurant design.

Project wise we are very pleased to be working with long term client Divine Restaurants and Design LSM on a new London venue and are delighted to announce that we has been working with Fresh Lifestyle to design and install the sound system within their latest salon, which is located within part of the new Estee Lauder development at Fitzroy place. For more information about this project, please visit the latest news on our website. Sound systems in beauty clinics and spas are of vital importance, if you would like to discuss how improving the soundscape in your beauty and spa facilities can heighten your customer's experiences then we’d love to hear from you.

On the subject of quality audio experiences in spa’s, we are delighted to announce that the first SPAshell, which CGA has partnered with SPA creators to deliver the audio for, has been installed at Fishmore Hall Hotel in Shewsbury and will open on 1st November. This video from Spa Creators will show you just how quickly and easily this quality spa concept can be added to your venue. For more information on SPAshell please visit our website or contact Alistair Johnson at Spa Creators on how to implement this exciting new concept in your venue.

As we move into November, don’t forget to protect your trading at this key time of year by getting your equipment serviced before the seasonal rush is in full swing. Despite best planning, sometimes problems do occur. If you find yourselves in this situation and you need emergency maintenance over this critical period, please do contact us via Client Support on the CGA website and we will do our best to fix your equipment with minimum disruption to you and your guests.

Finally, we have recently heard that the government will be introducing further changes to the frequencies used on many radio microphones. We will be writing to all of our existing radio microphone customers shortly, but if you do have a licence to broadcast on 694 to 790 MHz and would like to discuss these changes further with us, then please do get in touch. CGA can arrange to update your radio microphones in advance of these legal changes occurring, ensuring that you get the best out of your system and that it meets your specific needs.

We look forward to speaking with you and working with you again soon.
