Founded in 1964, the Centre is the training institution of the International Labour Organisation. It provides practical, need-based training and education, and strengthens the capabilities of governments, organisations and others in the areas of labour, social justice and development. 


The campus consists of five buildings, each of them representing a continent. The new building “Europe” has been established to accommodate conferences, seminars, workshops and media events organised by the United Nations and other institutions. Its conference centre offers four modular rooms with movable walls that can be modified into one single plenary hall. The installation covers A/V, simultaneous translation and videoconferencing, requiring a variety of different configurations.

The Shure Microflex Wireless system incorporating DECT technology was the solution of choice for the “Europe” conference centre. It comprises eight access points serving 56 desktop microphones, four handhelds and four bodypacks resulting in a total of 64 microphone channels. For the simultaneous translation system, the integrator opted for the DCS 6000 digital infrared system with four infrared radiators for the six interpreter booths, each assignable on-demand to any room.


The DCS 6000 and Microflex Wireless systems are a perfect choice due to their modularity, interoperability and high quality specifications. With this new system installation the conference centre is able to meet even the most demanding configurations, even if requested on short notice.
