Help during Covid When Covid began , a large part of the industry just stopped . But clients still had their kit and therefore needed insurance , despite little or no income coming in . We worked with our insurance panel to get premiums reduced , in many cases substantially , to help our clients through a difficult period .
Terms and conditions Unlike other industries ( contractors , plant , road haulage etc ), there are no standard T & Cs within the industry . I provided a seminar on this subject at The Event Production Show in 2021 providing tips and advice to companies both hiring in and hiring out . We continue to provide advice to any of our clients to improve their conditions , or if they wish to review terms provided to them by a hiring company .
