As well as providing IT support to QUAD, we are thrilled to sponsor the bar which is situated outside the venues two main cinema screens. Formerly known as the AskBar, it has since been relaunched and renamed as the AirBar. As part of our sponsorship, new signage has been fitted above the bar and over the entrance to the Box which is used as a multi-purpose facility for conferences, private screenings and events.

Adam Buss, CEO of QUAD said:

We are delighted that Air IT have chosen to support QUAD with this sponsorship. QUAD is a registered charity & not for profit organisation, and any additional income means we can continue to make QUAD’s range of art and film accessible to all. Air IT are at an exciting time in their development and we see our partnership as one that is beneficial for both parties.

Our partnership with QUAD strengthens strategic plans to cement Air IT as the first-choice IT and Communications provider in Derby and the surrounding area. Managing Director James Healey said:

QUAD is one of several new relationships we have developed in Derby over the past year since moving to our new headquarters in Sandiacre. With Derby being one of the fastest growing business communities in the UK, and with QUAD at the heart of the city’s landscape, we believe the partnership will be key to raising further awareness of our profile and developing strong relationships with local businesses in the area.

Working with Derby businesses

In addition to QUAD, Air IT are pleased to support a number of businesses in Derby, as well as being Marketing Derby Bondholders and sponsors of Derbyshire County Cricket Club.

Over the last year, we have worked particularly closely with QUAD on a number of initiatives. At the grand opening of our new offices, QUAD’s TECH:SQUAD helped us to premier our company video ‘We’re Air IT’ for the very first time on the big screen. The Technology Hub & Quad big screen

A state-of-the-art light show was also created especially for the event using the latest in digital mapping technology.


Air IT at the movies

On a company outing in May, Air IT staff attended a private screening of box office favourite, ‘The Greatest Showman’ with family and friends. Enjoying hospitality from the AirBar in the comfort of The Box, the movie was proceeded by a screening of the company video and our SDI Awards video ‘Tech Tom – Licence to serve’ as a special treat for our guests.

It was a fantastic evening and we were all very well looked after by the team at QUAD, so we’re already looking forward to next time and many more years to come as their IT partner.
