Showforce provided experienced crew to global event management specialist PublicisLive, who delivered the First Global Challenge 2019 event, held at the Dubai Festival Arena, 25th – 27th October. This was the third edition of the major international robotics competition and the first to be held outside of the Americas. It featured more than 1500 contestants from almost 200 countries around the globe. The theme ‘Ocean Opportunities’ encouraged the creation of robots that could clean up oceans and eliminate waste and pollutants.
Working alongside sister company, World Class Events who were supporting Publicis Live with technical production, Showforce provided an international crew chief, four crew members, a forklift operator and an IPAF qualified plant driver who were onsite for twelve days.
Carrying out an array of tasks the crew assisted Publicis Live’s production team with setting up the venue for the busy event, including stand building and arranging furniture. The crew also supported the event’s other contractors Creative Technology, Unusual Rigging and Protec with the installation of screens, lighting, sound and rigging equipment.
