Tour Logistics

Technical Labor

Touring & entertainment events can be demanding; the complexity of the technology is often amplified with a compressed timeline for setup and tear down. We build a technical support team to assist these types of events from pre-production through every stop they make.  

  • Rigging & Setup
  • Load in / Load out
  • Run of Show
  • Technical Direction
  • Temporary Networks

Our approach

Tours can be a challenge to navigate. There are often multiple deliverables at play at any given point in the planning process; developing the show schedule, planning for pre and post show communication, staff travel coordination, arranging show services, ensuring proper training, coordinating on-site technical support, and of course all of the required design, build, and setup of the show itself. 

You don’t need to let planning or technical coordination distract you from what really matters though. Our team successfully supports some of the largest events in the world. We make the show process easier by taking on whatever portion of the lift that’s required. Whether that’s just providing access to modern AV equipment to support your message, or creating custom brand activations to draw in and retain a crowd so you can focus on what really matters – the client interactions and telling your story.
