About Event Acoustics

What makes us special

The passion of the people at Event Acoustics is music and creating the best experience of it with as little disruption as possible. Ultimately, the artist determines everything but we want to create the best possible acoustic conditions.

For a good experience of music, the volume and quality of playback is important. We stand for integrated solutions where both sound insulation, acoustics and sound system can be designed by us. If there is no standard solution we invent or develop one. We love a party but believe it should take place with as little disruption as possible.

We believe that measurements should be objective without a subjective assessment by humans. For this reason, we have developed our unique proprietary MeTrao measurement system. The only noise measurement system that measures simultaneously at source and receiver, giving truly reliable objective measurements. This way, we prevent and remedy noise pollution and noise problems at festivals, municipalities, companies and also private individuals, among others.

Our rich history

2003

How it began

Event Acoustics traces its roots back to 2003. That’s when we started consulting theater and concert halls on sound, lighting and acoustics. What made us so special then is that we were able to offer an integrated solution. Not only do we understand acoustics and sound insulation of buildings but also sound systems So we were able to advise on how companies could create a better sound experience. Many years later, we are still doing this, but now with even more knowledge and with better measuring equipment.

2006

North Sea Jazz

In 2006, we were approached for the North Sea Jazz festival to ensure perfect sound quality by advising on sound insulation between the stages, acoustics and the sound system for each venue. During the event, there were complaints of noise pollution but it was difficult to pinpoint exactly where it was coming from. Event Acoustics used its expertise to develop a measurement system that made it easier to identify which stage was causing a nuisance. In this way, the noise could be better regulated and complaints were resolved. Finally, with this measuring equipment, it became possible to detect the problem within half an hour. We used the same techniques at Lowlands, among other festivals, and still use them regularly at many others in the Netherlands and abroad.

2010

Nesselande, Rotterdam

In 2010, we were asked to take measurements in the Rotterdam neighborhood of Nesselanden. Residents complained about a hum that no one could find the source of.When we took our measurements, the results turned out to be very confusing. But that didn’t stop us from taking a different approach. By measuring both at the possible source and receiver of the noise, we found out that the noise was coming from trucks on the highway. A few years later, a RIVM report also confirmed these findings.

Recent

On the tube

In recent years, we have been on television several times in programs such as The Driving Judge and The Monitor. In these programs, we share our knowledge and expertise to solve and explain problems. Thus, we also want to create more attention to the problems of noise pollution. We are very proud of this milestone!

For the individual

Because of all our experience with noise pollution and noise control, we know that individuals also have to deal with these issues. Therefore, we are working to make our services affordable for individuals as well. We would like to help them solve noise issues, for example, or manage the noise of a private event. Thus, once again, we ensure that sound is a pleasant experience for everyone. Recently, we have developed new affordable measurement equipment making our revolutionary detection method of simultaneous measurement at sources (transmitters) and receivers also payable by individuals.
