Why?

These events have taken place in facilities of all types and in indoor and outdoor environments.Our experience working in these greatly varying environments — as well as our collective background in technical theatre — helps us design and implement systems in facilities that will truly address our clients’ production needs while ensuring that systems are easy-to-use for the end user (…you!) and appropriately designed to fit facility requirements (aesthetics, acoustics, etc.) and budget-friendly.
