SXS Events – Staging, Drapes, Theatre Lighting, Video and Sound

SXS Events are a leading technical production company providing to theatre, events and concerts. We own a large and diverse stock of quality sound, lighting, drapes, video projection, rigging, staging, and special effects in stock. We also have an excellent set-build shop. We truely are a one-stop shop for all technical needs!

SXS Events have the perfect business model to offer quality, streamlined, on-budget event services within the tighter budgets we are likely to start experiencing. The main reason for this is in the diversity of services we offer.

Diversity of Services

We are one of only a handful of companies in the industry who offer a complete range of technical services. We provide sound, lighting, video, drapery, power distribution, staging, outdoor services, set build and special effects. With all our equipment owned outright and maintained in-house, we aim to be as good as, and better than, the specialists in each field.

This means that, instead of contracting various companies for your event, you can get a complete solution from one organisation.

“We think that dealing with lots of different companies is more hassle and more expensive than dealing with one company.”

Logistics

This will also save you money on logistics as everything converges onto site in one vehicle, and with only one set of staff, which presents savings passed directly to you.

“We do not feel that there is any value in having six vans onsite when one truck would do the job.”

Location

While most of our work is within Greater London, our headquarters are in Bristol. As we own our own premises and wage bills are lower in Bristol, we have lower fixed costs than many London-based companies. These are savings we pass onto you, our client.

“We see no benefit to the client fitting the bill for higher company overheads.”

Staffing Policies

Where possible we will use our in-house full-time staff for events. Our people are committed, hard-working and understand our equipment and, more importantly, our clients. This approach, rather than relying entirely on freelancers, means better flexibility and a more streamlined service. Also, because our staff members are on full-time contracts, we are able to offer them for lower rates than expensive freelancers.

“We believe that clients want to use crew they are familiar with, and that really care about them.”
