Lak Mitchell, Boomtown Creative Director
GMC Events has a wealth of experience in a range of live event production services and can tailor a package to meet your needs. Services include, but are not limited to:
We work collaboratively with our clients to plan every onsite detail of each event to ensure a seamless public experience. This includes liaising with the promoter to ensure full understanding of the event concept through to site design and managing execution for a successful event.
We ensure a safe and efficient delivery of the site management. This includes adhering to all HSE and CDM guidelines as well as maintaining the integrity of the site. From show days to after the event, our site management team ensure that all contractors are working to schedule and swiftly resolve any issues.
We take health and safety seriously and ensure that all processes are correctly evaluated. Any risk assessments that are carried out must be followed through to completion and action points followed up. We hold certificates in Iosh, Nebosh & Public Safety at Festivals and Mass Gatherings as well as First Aid at Work.
With over 20 years' experience in event design, we can visualise what site design will work on the ground. All site maps are drawn to scale using Vectorworks. Once onsite, we mark out using GPS to ensure accuracy.
From delivering basic stage, sound and lighting packages to complex festival multistage set ups, we have the team and contractors to deliver technical production aspects where needed.
We provide accurate and transparent budget estimates to help planning in the early stages. As the event planning progresses, we hold ongoing consultation and updates with the client to detail and agree exact costings.
We are experienced in the submission of event licenses to local authorities from remote greenfield sites to highly-controlled city centre parks.
