This past weekend we visited the O2 arena in London, needless to say it was heaving! Not only with people but also with rigging motors and electric chain hoists, literally everywhere, holding up signs, screens, trussing, lighting, speakers to name but a few!
This really goes to show that there is no lack in the market for requirement as there are hundreds of these mega arenas all around the country such as football clubs and even airports, this is great for the market and the industries economy as I am confident it is on the rise, all of my contacts across the market tell me nothing but positive things with steady growth. As it has it I was contacted by a university doing a survey on the market, it was very in depth and lasted around 40 minutes, every kind of question was asked and my opinion was noted, at the end the lady provided me with feedback on what other people had been saying, it was very positive and a steady growth year on year until 2020 was predicted which is nothing but good news for everyone in sales and hire of rigging gear.
I was amazed at the site of all these hoists and the technical rigging that goes in to these systems, the guys that set them up are very talented and deserve much credit, hats off!
