Staffing & Labor Rates

Our staffing is split into two categories: Media Technicians and Event Crew

Understanding our Media Technician and Event Crew services and rates

We recommend you consider...

  • Complexity of your event
  • Coordination with other shops
  • Schedule appropriate set-up & removal times with the venue
  • Technicians "per department": sound, video, lighting, recording
  • Larger events: rapid room flips may require several staff members
  • Venue & auditoria requirements
  • Labor for set-up & removal
  • Technology Replacement Fees
  • Media Technicians: Audio, video, multimedia, soft-goods, recording, lighting.
  • Event Crew: Furnishings, tables, chairs, staging, moving services.
  • Rates: The listed rates are per-person, per-hour.
  • Billing Units: We bill in 1/4 hour increments for Event Crew and 1 hour increments for Media Technicians.

 We do our best to avoid unnecessary labor charges.
