The EOE conference was a large job with a 25 meter long main stage with continuous painted facia on the treads. 5 smaller break out stages, a LED screen wall surround and two large double sided walls which divided the halls in the St Regis Hotel on Saadiyat Island.
The EMA Partners Conference for KPMG was a relatively simple build, and a nice job to start off the new season. We supplied the main stage, with stand off logo, ground row, and Dubai skyline profile.

This years NAS opening ceremony started off the tournament with a bang. Featuring extreme sports stars such as the Yasutoko Brothers and Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham from Nitro Circus. Along with a whole host of other sports stars and entertainers performing dances, trampoline acts, BMX stunts and more.
JR Scenic was asked to supply ramps for the performers to use in the show, including a 3.6M drop in ramp, quarter pipe, landing ramp and a 3M half pipe shown in the images below. After the opening ceremony the court had to be cleared completely within 8 Minutes for the first volley ball tournament to begin. Because of this each ramp was built with hidden wheels so it could be quickly disassembled and rolled out of the arena.
We also supplied this podium which was used during the show to signify the beginning of the tournament. The first games ball was placed on top, and the podium instantly lit up.
