Tell Us A Little Bit About What Your Company Does And What Services You Provide:
Stagelink provides specialist technical design and production services to the live event industries. We have worked all over the world, helping teams from the Rolling Stones and U2 to the Opening Ceremonies of the 2004 Athens Olympics and 2010 Vancouver Olympics. We provide specialist 3d technical design solutions using AutoCAD and Rhino, technical drawings, specifications and technical direction. Much of our work involves the coordination of lighting, sound, video, rigging and staging teams to ensure that everybody is heading in the right direction. Our real ‘buzz’ is bringing together hugely complex projects and teams to realize a creative dream.
How Did You Get Started:
After leaving school, I worked as a lighting technician on events all over the world, before moving onto the technical design of stage sets.
How Long Have You Been In Business And How Many Employees Do You Currently Have:
I have been involved in the technical side of live events for the past twenty years. We don’t have any full time employees. We use a network of specialists from around the world, who we call on depending on the exact requirements of our clients.
What Is Your Target Audience:
We seek out teams who are producing ‘mega events’ wherever they are in the world. The industry is relatively small, so we rely on our network of existing contacts.
How Does Your Company Stay Connected With Clients And Your Business Community:
We run a successful website which provide free listings of people and companies working in the events industry. We communicate regularly using email, and run document management systems to allow for the distribution of drawings and specifications.
