A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ON TOUR EVENTS
So where did it start for On Tour Events? How did On Tour Events become one of the leading sound hire, event lighting, creative staging & LED video wall hire companies across London & the UK.
Like a lot of AV hire companies we started off in the sound equipment hire industry which quickly grow to include supplying event lighting for weddings and small corporate events around London & Surrey. Within a matter of a couple of years we were providing custom creative staging solutions for conferences, building truss & supplying lighting for exhibitions which then lead us into a designing & building custom exhibition stands incorporating LED screens & TV’s into the stage set, we worked in this industry for just over 7 years before moving once again into larger productions.
While we were growing a firm reputation in London we also were supplying technical production services to a number of local sound & lighting AV companies in Surrey, where we would work as a white label events company providing mostly technical sound, lighting & staging services to the wedding industry & for larger marquess companies in Surrey who had customers looking for a professional production package included with the marquee.
16 years later & we are still providing audio visual & event equipment services to a number of lighting & sound hire companies in Surrey, so much so that we opened a smaller warehouse in Surrey allowing us to service current clients but also the growing our business & relationships in the vast corporate events industry that Surrey seems to offer. It also helps with the wedding planners we have built up a trusted relationship & still work with today providing our wedding production services too.
Ask any of the event / wedding planners in Surrey if they have heard of On Tour Events from London we are confident that the feedback will only be positive. It has taken many years to build such a trusted & proven reputation for delivering exceptional events & production but it's what we love & it means a lot to us.
GOT A QUESTION? CHECK OUT THE Q&A SECTION BELOW:
What is a ''turnkey'' event production package & what does it include?
How long has On Tour Events been running as a technical event production company?
What industries do you work in & is there anything you dont offer?
You offer 3D production renders but do we have to pay for these?
Do you have a gallery where we can see the events you have worked on?
What sets you apart from other techincal event production companies?
We been using the same audio visual company for sometime now but we are looking to change supplier, why should we choose On Tour Events?
This question is very similar to the last question so I won't go over old ground but essentially what we have found over the years is when you don't look around for any new or creative companies you may find that your current list of suppliers aren’t motivated to innovate or change anything and let's be honest why would they if you keep booking the same event production company? You will keep getting the same results and if you're happy with the results then fantastic but if you are looking to change there must be a reason why, there must be something that maybe you feel could be improved upon.
Do you stock weatherproof outdoor LED screen as well as indoor screen?
Your website talks about staging but do you hire out complete festival stages?
Where are you based & what areas do you cover? It says you're in London, Surrey & Manchester
We are really happy with the quote & production proposal, what are your payment terms?
We try to keep business very simple, our payment terms work as follows: Once you are happy with our proposal, you've read over the quote & you've decided that you would like to proceed, we require a 25% reservation fee which will hold our services & the said equipment as per your quote, for the times & dates as agreed in the proposal. The second part of your payment is required before any prep starts or any build takes place but of course you will be notified of this date within your proposal and quote & is generally 14 days before your event. This can change depending on the scale and scope of your project as materials and labour can differ hugely from production to production. On some occasions we get asked if we offer any payment terms such as 30, 60 or we've been asked to provide 120-day terms on invoices. This is not something that we currently offer.
Do you offer a delivery / dry hire service? We only need to hire a small sound system with wireless microphone for our conference
Is it possible to come along & see what you do at an event?
We have a large and extensive catalogue of photos & videos of a huge number of events that we have provided our technical production services for but on occasions we do get asked by potential clients if they can come to see some of our productions first-hand. Unfortunately, unless it is a public event this is completely out of our control and is not something which we would entertain.
What sound & lighting equipment do you stock & do you have a full price list?
We have a preferred sound, lighting or stage supplier but would like you to supply X or Y is this still possible?
This one is something we would have to look at case-by-case. Essentially you don't have to use all of our services it's just something that we offer, so if you have a preferred sound hire company that you would like to use for your award show or conference, of course absolutely no issue with us if we are supplying the LED screen or event lighting and of course we are happy to work alongside them in a professional manner as anybody would expect. One thing we don't do is we don't share services so if you were to ask us to provide you all of the live sound equipment for an artist or band but you would like to hire the mixing desk from one company, the radio mics from another company, the backline from another company etc this would be something which we would have to discuss as it gets very complicated when you have more than one supplier on one aspect of the production.
We have events taking place across the UK & Europe, do you work aboard?
We are looking at a number of venues & we would like a site visit to discuss our production requiments, is this something you charge for?
What's the difference between a sound or lighting hire company & a technical production company like youselves?
There is a huge difference between a sound and lighting hire company and a technical event production company offering event production services. To explain quickly what the main differences are: Your normal everyday sound and lighting hire company often deal with 15 to 50 customers on a weekend, sometimes in the peak of season these companies can deal with up to 60 or 70 customers in one weekend. These companies often offer a dry hire sound and lighting service or delivery service as well as a DIY pick it up party service. There is nothing wrong with this and these are very successful business models, but when you are producing & designing an event to a high level & standard, you can only work on one to two events at a time and the larger events you could be up to 2 weeks just on prep, so yes there is a difference. You have our attention, we don't ever stretch ourselves or overwork ourselves to the point where we feel it will compromise an event because at that point you are doing too much. Far too often this happens within the events industry as the ''stack it high, sell it cheap’’ model doesn't work over time.... We prefer to do it once & do it right.
Where can I find your soical media pages & do you have a YouTube page?
You will find links to our official Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr blog. We do our best to share as much information as possible but some of the events we work on are private events where they have asked for no photos to be taken on site & shared. Please note some of the pictures and videos that you will see in our portfolios and across our social media pages are from third-party event photographers / film companies where we have asked permission to use their photos beforehand.
I am an event planner who would like to use your technical event production services but are you willing to work under my brand & company?
Absolutely an obvious yes! In fact, this is something that event planners and event organisers and, in some cases, other rental companies like about our service and that is it is completely free of any company branding in terms of our flight cases, vehicles and crew wear. All our equipment is unbranded apart from flight case numbers allowing us to work with other hire companies, event planners & organizers meaning there's never any worry or confusion with your client. If you would prefer us to also wear YOUR branded crew workwear, then we have no issue with this our only goal is getting in on time, in place and produce a quality event. We will let our work do the talking.
