Hello everyone,

I'm finalising an interpreting assignment in Marrakech in about a month's time. My tame equipment provider here in France tells me he doesn't ship his equipment abroad because of potential radio frequency conflicts.

Does anybody out there have any recommendations for a locally-based, reliable supplier of headset + microphone equipment (no need for booths as this is a small gathering)? Recommendations welcome on the thread or by private message.

Thanks!

Unfortunately this assignment has been cancelled, but I did learn a number of things from various conversations off-thread.

Firstly that the issue of the radio frequency bands used by headsets can be a real problem outside the EU and that getting locally sourced material is strongly recommended. Customs clearance may also be a problem if you don't.

Secondly, that equipment hired on-site is likely to be very expensive; this needs to be factored in to your quote.

Thanks to those who provided useful contacts and information in private.
