DB Systems was one of the companies that contributed to the success of the UK's first televised election debate in Manchester.
The audio visual hire company helped to provide the IT network infrastructure for the debate, which was viewed by almost ten million people.
DB worked with technical support firm AT Communications, installing various services such as Wi-Fi access points.
It also provided IT support to the media centre, in which 300 journalists had instant access to the likes of online polls and live data relating to audience reaction.
David Bulley, DB Systems' managing director, said: "It was really exciting to be so involved at the front line of the current election with the historic first ever election debate."
He added that it was vital that the infrastructure was robust to handle the hundreds of journalists and TV crews accessing the internet.
The audio visual hire company also recently won a contract to supply the internet and telecommunications systems and services to all exhibitors at the 2010 and 2012 Farnborough Airshows.
