Event and Exhibition Preparation – the Lift It & Shift It Gang
As a busy centre, we want to create a new team to support our staff with setting up and taking down equipment for concerts, exhibitions and other events.
Our huge main space is extremely flexible and can be set up in a number of different ways, but that also means we frequently need to re-set equipment which takes time.
For example, it can take three hours to correctly set up 329 numbered chairs in the right place or four days to set up all the stands for an art fair. With more help we can reduce changeover times.
