BUSINESS AS USUAL

The Fort McMurray, Alberta wildfire of 2016 has been burning since May 1. It has been under control, at least, since July 5, but by that point, beginning May 1, it had already torn through 590,000 hectares (1,500,000 acres) of forests and city alike, destroying up to 90% of the homes in some neighbourhoods of…

90% Off

As far as discounts go, 90% is a big one. You don’t even get that much of a cut off of Halloween chocolate in mid-November. But one of the things we’re proudest of with Stageline mobile stages is that they routinely cost 90% less to install and get ready than other traditional ground-support solutions. The…

SUPERDOME MEETS SUPER STAGE DEPLOYMENT

How fast do you think you could set up one of Stageline’s SL100 mobile stages? The New Orleans Saints gave Dolph Federico and his team at Pelican Events twenty minutes after a game in the Superdome. That’s right, one third of an hour. From the closing whistle of the game to the first note of…

Yes, Can Do!

Last week we told the story of Dolph Federico and his team at Pelican Events steering an Stageline SL100 through the six-inch clearance of the New Orleans Superdome’s goal-posts and setting the stage up in twenty narrow minutes.

A true Character

“Officially I was a stage tech,” says New Orleans Glen “Monster” Warner, as he reflects on the many facets of his long career in the music industry. “With Bob Dylan, I was his official Corona beer man. With David Lee Roth, I carried him on a surfboard!” A Zelig-style figure in the world of arena…

What about lifting capacity?

With ever-tightening deadlines and an increased concern for safety, lifting capacity is an important factor to consider when choosing the appropriate stage. But what exactly does it entail? Lifting capacity allows a stage structure to have its roof section lifted with loads already hung from it. They make it possible to secure sound equipment, lighting, and banners…

SPRING CHECKUP

The reason so many poets write about spring is that it’s the season of things starting to happen, for better or worse. For the better, the outdoor show season is beginning to ramp up and promoters are getting anxious to get their stages out on the road and people on—and in front of—them. For the…

WINTER IS (STILL…) HERE !

Snow…  It can add a magical touch to the ambience of an outdoor event, but it also quickly adds a few challenges that Stageline equipment are designed to handle. While our stages can certainly withstand snow, we don’t consider snow build-up on the roof desirable. While it’s the duty of the promoter to monitor weather,…

Inspection of Your Stage by Local Authorities

Every municipality, city, county, state, or other governing body has emergency plans in place to deal with public events. In order to make an emergency plan for the event that you’re organizing, authorities will require a detailed plan and an accurate map of any and all structures that will be in place—they will need to…

WINTER IS HERE!

While it’s been quite a while that Game of Thrones has been reminding us “winter is coming,” the real thing is finally here. Luckily for Stageline’s clients, that’s no reason to postpone outdoor events. After making a few allowances for safety, all Stageline stages can be used in winter conditions. And because we’re headquartered in Montreal, you…
