You Ask, We Answer

In the event industry there are a mind boggling number of roles and responsibilities that are needed to pull each event together.  Many of these roles are easily understood but when it comes to those technical guys, there is still the nagging feeling it’s all smoke and mirror and best left alone.

This section of the website is here to blow away the smoke and remove the mirrors to provide an insight into the minds of the people who provide the technical support for your event.

We look to answer as many of those nagging questions you may have about the technical bit of your event.  We will discuss such topics as The Event Organiser’s guide to the technical bits, a few relevant opinions, insights from our side of the event and a few case studies to show that we are actually quite good at this stuff.

If you also have a question that you would like an answer to, please make contact.  We are here to help.
