Round Stage - VCC West Ballrooms
We just installed our first Protec owned 24`diameter round stage for a Client in the VCC West Ballrooms. This specific stage is skirted in soft fabric, but it can also be done using hard skirting. Protec has now procured 8`, 12`, 16`, 20`and 24`round stages based on interest of our Clients. Very exciting!

Live Nation Events - Deer Lake ParkAs we have for several years, Protec provided staging, front of house, and barricade for Live Nation’s concerts at the Festival Lawn venue, Deer Lake. This year’s events included Alabama Shakes, The Cure, Lumineers, Weezer, and Burnaby Blues and Roots.
PNE requires special attention for Protec, as we supply multiple vendors with staging, subflooring, and tents. The largest of these installations is for Inventa Brand, for their WorkBC tent. The 32’ X 32’ carpeted stage, and wheelchair ramp needs to be built in stages, as the tent is supplied by a 3rd party vendor, and it must be in place prior to our installing the carpeting.
The double stage we built for CTV at this year’s PNE shows an interesting way of building a stage, and is also a good example of how Protec deals with uneven ground installations. We added skirting on the lower level to provide a clean, finished look.

This annual event runs through downtown Vancouver and around Stanley Park. Each year Protec provides a stage at the starting line, finish line, and points throughout the course. Stages need to be installed right before the marathon begins, and removed as soon as all runners have passed through each specific gate. This requires precision, planning, and a good team that's on the ball.
