Steynberg mentioned that it has been a very gradual process for dB Audio Namibia to get where they are today. “When we started, the live events industry was in its infancy.
“We are fortunate to have grown together with the industry over the years as clients for corporate events, and audiences for entertainment events, started wanting more and better, in line with international standards and expectations,” said Steynberg.
dB Audio Namibia believes in long-term sustainability. He added that their purpose is to be an environment where anyone with a passion for the technical events industry can have the opportunity to develop themselves, to earn a living and shape a future and in doing so, serve their clients with excellence.
When asked what are some of the events they have worked on so far that have been the highlight of dB Audio Namibia - in terms of stage design, lighting and sound - Steynberg said that there are so many as they support various types of events and it is hard to compare the highlights of a conference with a concert, for example.
“But from just these two examples, recent highlights would be Gazza'sMilli concert last weekend and the Economic Summit – which we are proud to have contributed to successfully,” said Steynberg.
On the inspiration for their designs, Steynberg said that it is a collaborative process, adding that their clients' ideas determine the overall direction which their internal design team then takes further into computer-aided designs and engineering drawings.
“We brainstorm and conceptualise together while considering practical implications such as budgets, timelines and most importantly, health and safety considerations.”
dB Audio Namibia also runs an internship programme for individuals with an interest in their line of work.
The Talent Attraction Programme was started when the company realised thatmany young people do not know about careers available in the technical live events industry. “In fact, many do not even realise that such an industry exists; everyone thinks all we do is sound and that everyone at dB Audio Namibia is a DJ.
The reality is that someone interested in information technology (IT) has great possibilities in technical live events or lighting; someone studying architecture, can also design stages, not only houses,” he said.

“We can sadly not accommodate everyone who shows an interest, but often we find just the right fit for somebody and then we gladly take them on board.”
