Expand Event Programming

If you're looking for a way to expand your event offerings, a mobile stage offers many benefits. In addition to providing staging that can be moved from place to place, these stages also save on labor costs and can even provide a way for you to build revenues.

Q: Why should we consider a mobile stage?

A: You can use a mobile stage at events in any location within your community. From a county fair to a downtown festival to a concert in the park, you can move your stage from place to place.

Mobile stages are much simpler to put together than other options, and they require far less manpower. Wooden portable stages can take a half-day to assemble and a half-day to take down. A mobile stage features remote control operation of the canopy and stage, as well as auto-leveling, making setup and tear-down a snap for just one or two people.

Q: Can a mobile stage help increase revenues?

A: In addition to your own events and programs, you can easily rent your mobile stage out to other organizations in your community. Many organizations will be glad to take advantage of the simplicity of setup and the safety of such a stage for their own events.

Q: We would like to provide a better stage setup, but we're concerned about labor costs. Will a mobile stage help?

A: With simple setup—just the push of a button—a mobile stage can really save a lot in terms of labor costs. Older portable stages can require four or six people to set up, and it still takes hours to get the stage in place or tear it back down when your event is over. A mobile stage can be set up by a much smaller crew in just 30 minutes.

And because it can be set up with the push of a button, your staff are less likely to be injured at work.
