What our customers say about us...

Outback Rigging have worked with the Business Design Centre on a large number of exhibitions, including Czech House which was built to house the Czech Olympic committee for the duration of the London 2012 Olympic games. This custom built area was used to host political, public, economic, business and cultural events as well as some Olympics focused events. Outback Rigging worked along with the BDC and the Czech House organisers to provide a staging area, video screens, a TV studio, bar area and VIP area plus much more.

'As always Outback have delivered the perfect solution for the Business Design Centre. Hosting over 80 exhibitions a year, it is essential that health and safety is at the forefront of every rigging solution implemented within the design centre. Stuart and his team are great at listening to our requirements, offering a solution then delivering it on time and to budget. The team are a great bunch of guys and they always bring some humour to the site with them. I would happily recommend Outback to other venues looking for rigging solutions.'
