Event planning is considered the sixth most stressful career, topped only by police, military personnel, broadcasters, pilots and firefighters. A big contributing factor for this is the huge number of suppliers that event planners must deal with on a daily basis when organising an event. An easy way to mitigate this (and relieve stress!) is to reduce the number of suppliers you work with. We’ve compiled a list of five reasons to use a single source supplier for scenic and technical build for your next event.
1. Single Point of Contact
The obvious benefit of working with a multidiscipline supplier is a single point of contact. Having a dedicated point of contact increases efficiency when organising an event and reduces the need for delivering multiple briefs. At Maestra, our Account Managers act as the internal mediator between you and our team of internal specialists in each of our divisions.
2. Seamless Integration
Projects of all sizes require seamless integration of technical equipment with scenic build. Often the hiding of cables, fitting of LED screens, and building of equipment hides mean a complicated collaboration between AV supplier, scenic supplier and agency. A multi-discipline supplier can help clients to avoid this unnecessary headache. Maestra’s scenic workshop connects directly to our technical warehouse, which allows us to ensure that all technical equipment is seamlessly integrated. Logistical issues are avoided as we are able to mock-up complete production builds in one location at our in-house facility.
3. Professional Advice
A multi-service supplier has an internal team that looks at projects from a holistic perspective. It means they have a wide vision on the whole project and the impacts that certain decisions might have on other disciplines or suppliers. Our internal team is skilled at working across all divisions and understanding the complexities of different projects.
With the current global situation, there is no doubt that cost-efficient solutions are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. With both a full technical inventory in lighting, sound, video and rigging, complemented by a fully equipped scenic workshop, we have the ability to be flexible on our pricing and work closely with our clients to achieve their budgets.
5. Communication & Planning
With ever-shortening lead times, communication is key. Taking care of the full production allows us to plan/design/schedule your project with our internal operations team and ensure that all elements of the build, install and show are delivered seamlessly onsite.
