Rigging Hire

We understand that the presenter’s message must be delivered with impact. We are your choice supplier of audio hire solutions for countless events, trade shows, exhibitions, conferences, seminars, product launch events, festivals and venues.

If you have ever watched a time-lapse film of the rigging and dismantling of a set for an event, you’ll often be amazed by the sheer amount of hard work and effort it takes to achieve the best of effects. With so many other areas to think about, when responsible for a conference, exhibition, festival, product launch, dinner, awards presentation or the like, you’ll want to be sure that the rigging and staging is in the best of hands.

Our extensive range chain motors, rotators and chain blocks provide the most efficient delivery of overhead rigging installations for exhibition organisers, major contractors, exhibitors and custom stand builders. We provide technical assistance in the lead up to the event, followed by the safest and most effective delivery practices on-site.

Safe and Certified Rigging Solutions for Every Event Type

By selecting to rig your lighting, audio and screen components overhead in an event space enables you to have greater flexibility and aesthetic improvements in your event design, as it removes the placement of lighting, audio, vision hardware above the audience’s heads, out of sight.

Function space rigging equipment using free standing truss structures or roof mounted elements ensures clear sight-lines to the stage and onscreen content improving the look of an event. By removing as much rigging hardware clutter as we can, we create a freer environment that can then be used as a foundation to build an attractive looking show based on your event objectives. Unsightly equipment and cables are removed creating:

  • A safer environment that also looks less cluttered

  • More function space allowing better guest experience

  • Increased space for spacious event themeing and solid branding
