    The North is heard at Rigger’s Voice 2020

    The 2020 edition of Rigger’s Voice turned its ear to voices from the North, as extremely experienced riggers and production professionals from Scandinavia travelled to Area Four Industries Headquarters in Roudnice nad Labem, Czech Republic for this annual, elite conference.  Coming from Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark, attendees took part in high-level rigging and support structure discussions that were led by Area Four Industries Technical Director Norbert Tripp from 11th – 12th February. Many questions were asked, various rigging, truss and support structure discussions held, and even truss stress tests conducted during the two jam packed days. Participants were also treated to a grand tour of the MILOS factory.  Ideas and recommendations from these experienced professionals, for helping steer future product development by Area Four Industries brands, were also provided during the conference. This information is highly valued by each brand and is an important part of every Rigger’s Voice.  The two full days of the Rigger’s Voice conference were separated by a fun and exciting evening in the capital city of Prague. Attendees enjoyed a scenic boat ride on the Vltava River, which features fantastic views of the historic city, with dinner and drinks at a traditional Czech restaurant.  After two days of diving deep into the rigging and support structure pool of knowledge, attendees went back to their respective countries with newfound information to share with their company and colleagues, thereby helping to increase the level of safety in our industry.  Contact us today at info@areafourindustries.comif you’re an experienced rigger or production professional that would like to join the 2021 edition of Rigger’s Voice.Click hereto see the video from Rigger´s Voice.  www.areafourindustries.com
