little about us
AC Electric, an established electrical contractor of over 60 years have been on the scene from the very first exhibitions in Northern Ireland and as events grew and evolved , the company did likewise.
There came a time when the technical side of exhibitions where more than just electrics and at that time as a natural progression Event Technical Services became part of the evolution process. Now, with a more appropriate name the company were able to promote many other aspects of their business offering the event organisers and promoters, stand build contractors and exhibitors alike the 'one stop shop' option, which was well received in the exhibition and events industry in Northern Ireland.
“your say”Balmoral Show DARD
“Just a note to thank you and your team for all your efforts which went into Northern Ireland Departments' exhibition such a success. As usual there is a lot of work behind the scenes and in the run up to the event and your team worked very professionally to deliver a first class service. Many thanks again.”Festival of Colours Event Organisers
“ETS provided ArtsEkta with a comprehensive event electrics solution for our annual Festival of Colours. They are extremely reliable, friendly and professional, providing services at competitive rates, and demonstrated excellent flexibility in facilitating our last minute requests. Their stand-by electrician on the day was very pro-active in communicating with the stage, lighting, traders and activity providers, ensuring that they were all happy with their electrics as soon as they arrived on site.”President Clintons Visits Northern Ireland Information Service
“I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere thanks for all your work during the visit of President Clinton. The two press centres, and the accreditation desk which we set up, proved to be a resounding success with local and international media. This was down in no small part to the contribution which you played.“Senior British Open International Management Group
“As another successful Senior British Open passes, we would like to express our gratitude for all your excellent work both prior and during the event. Without the support and huge contribution from all your workers it would surely have been a far harder task to make the event as smooth running as it evidently was.“CR Exhibitions Event Organisers
“On behalf of our team can I thank you and all your team for your help by supplying electrics and AV equipment for our exhibition. We were very pleased how smoothly it all went and everyone was so helpful. We also appreciated all your help with our seminars in setting up the equipment and making sure the lecturers were set up properly.“

the heart of any eventIn the many aspects of exhibitions and events electricity features above all others. Its place is at the core of our business model around which all other technical services revolve. Naturally we value safety as paramount in our electrical installations.
At every exhibition or event we service, we ensure a safe, practical and efficient working environment, giving our customers a high quality, reliable service.
Our electrical installations adhere to the guidance of BS7671 (electrical wiring regulations) and BS7909 (temporary electrical systems for entertainment and related purposes) plus any special requirements of venues and local councils.
Using our ‘SafeWire’ lighting and socket system benefits event organisers with faster installation times. This allows for a potential reduction in venue hire costs with around half the time needed for hard wire installations.
Exceeding demandsTo meet the demand of ever shorter event build times we developed the ‘SafeWire’ system, ensuring safe and expedient installations.
We have been using ‘SafeWire’ faultlessly for over 15 years. The system is flexible enough to meet modern or traditional stand construction alike.
Advantages• Safe: with safety as paramount in electrical installations, ‘SafeWire’ keeps it that way.
• Faster: considerably reduces the time required to install shell scheme electrics.
• Flexible: sockets and lights can be moved with ease and with minimum disruption.
• Reusable: all aspects of safetwire are completely re-usable including all cabling - this means less cable wastage helping us to keep our costs down and playing its part in our environmental policy.
Built on successHaving installed electrics to 1000's of stands in 100's of exhibitions we are the most experienced service provider in Northern Ireland.
The events we have covered don't come much bigger; from Presidential and Royal Visits and major golf tournaments to powerboats on the Lagan no event is too large. Exhibitions scale from major 5 hall events at the Kings Hall Exhibition & Conference Centre right down to small scale hotel seminars, our capability of delivering a quality service is the same irrespective of the event size.
Our visionOur team and all we stand for is based on expertise in flexibility, people skills, organisation, passion and time management.
With years of experience in events, we know there is always something that requires a creative fix and at times being resourceful to work within the means is the challenge. We share our ideas and your vision openly with our team and communicate on a level that is respectful to everyone. We realise that we all have our part to play, and getting the best from our team ultimately leads to success. We have the ability to coordinate not only ourselves, but the scheduling of the wider group involved in providing the services. Passion is not something we can teach, its something we have as individuals; you will know what it is when you see it from the outset of our involvement in your event. Time management to us is all about planning, and re-planning and scheduling.
