Creative Technology (CT), a division of NEP Group, the worldwide outsourced technical production partner of corporate live events and exhibition producers, announced today that it has acquired the assets of Avollusion, a Hong Kong-based technical event production company providing equipment and design services to the events industry.

The asset deal strengthens CT Hong Kong's position in the Asian corporate live events and exhibition marketplace, adding audio, display, lighting, projection, media management, technical design and production capabilities to CT's solutions for clients including Uniplan, Jack Morton, Zeal Experiential, LORE and many more.

"The addition of Avollusion's cutting-edge AV technology and talented staff will allow NEP and CT to better serve our clients in the Asia Pacific region," said Chris Burke, Managing Director of CT Asia Pacific. "We invest in the latest and best technology, supported by the highest-caliber, most innovative practitioners. This is exactly the case with Avollusion – it's a great fit between our business models and company cultures."

Effective immediately, the 12 current staff members from Avollusion will join CT as employees and the two businesses will operate out of Avollusion's headquarters under the leadership of Justin Choy, who will become Managing Director of CT Hong Kong which reports into CT's Asia Pacific division. 

"CT continuously looks for ways to enhance our offerings to continue to provide our clients with superior customer service," Burke continued.
