Water Show


March 2019

When you have a major public event to stage, it’s wise to bring in an experienced event production partner.


This event could be outdoors on a river, at night time, with specialty contractors and audio, lighting equipment scattered along a site 550 metres from one end to the other end. Such an event requires a thorough risk assessment with a comprehensive safe work methods statement documented and adhered to along with power generators distributed around the site, solid communications, dependable security, additional night time lighting, rain protection for equipment, secure barriers on the river’s edge and more.

Avoiding the pitfalls such as a child jumping a barrier and entering the water, a radio microphone dropping out during the mayor’s presentation or an adult spraining an ankle on the uneven steps are accidents every event producer is seeking to mitigate and hopefully eliminate completely.

At times, clients do not see the value of thorough pre-production, whether logistical, creative or technical and cannot appreciate the choice of redundancies put in place for the more risky elements to ensure ‘the show goes on’.

Let’s work together.
