Enniscorthy, Co Wexford based ICT solutions provider Datapac has renewed its sponsorship deal with Wexford Festival Trust, which is valued at €75,000 over three years.

The Wexford Festival Trust produces the annual Wexford Festival Opera, which is one of Ireland’s longest established arts and cultural events, founded in 1951.

Its next festival will take place from 21 October to 1 November in Wexford Opera House, recently officially recognised as Ireland’s national opera house. Ticket sales are expected to be well in excess of 20,000.

As the festival’s exclusive IT and telecommunications partner since 2008, Datapac is upgrading existing IT infrastructures and delivering additional new technologies to support planned growth of the festival and opera house.

The new solution includes an upgraded unified communications system which allows staff and clients to communicate effectively from multiple device and locations.

It also encompasses an upgrade of all software and hardware including point-of-sale technologies which enables the house and festival organisers to easily manage growing levels of bookings.

In addition, Datapac has implemented a new IT security solution to ensure complete protection for all users at all times, and it provides proactive managed support of the entire infrastructure from its network operations centre in Enniscorthy.
