found the course very interesting and I think our team learnt a lot. I’ve been doing structures for the past eight years. It’s as I told Duncan Riley of DWR, there is no such thing as bad training. You always learn something.Leslie Wahl MGG Productions

ProVision AVL, Prolyte Group distributor for the UAE, supplies over 600m of Prolyte trussing to SET, a newly established company for rental and technical production.
Stage Efficient Technical Works LLC (SET), has been recently established in the UAE, offering technical crew, including riggers, sound, engineers, lighting technicians and video engineers. “SET is a technical support entity for event production companies and venues”, explained Jossy Thomas, sales manager at SET’s parent company, Worldstage Management. Thomas formed the brand along with business partner SreeRam Srinivas.
The company was initially conceived to offer rigging services; however, customer demand quickly drove the business to adapt. “We first brought in riggers and ground riggers to serve the events industry”, Thomas commented. “This opened up more doors in rigging and we then started getting requests for trussing systems for various companies and venues, along with the crew”.
When it came to exploring options for trussing solutions, Thomas explained that the emphasis was on looking for a strong brand. “We sat down with Kevin Boujikian from Provision AVL and decided to buy Prolyte truss. Our initial stock has now grown to 600m of Prolyte truss. The fact that Prolyte is supporting us whenever we need it, is a big plus. We are happy with the brand and the services provided.
“The team from SET are top guys and their work is widely known in the market”, commented Kevin Boujikian. “They do a lot of rigging and A/V work all around UAE, especially at the DWTC, ADNEC and Madinat”.
