Times have changed. With the change, there has been a shift to traditional TV and Film locations. The west coast, specifically California, has been the go to location for years. Currently, there has been a shift and Vegas has been one of the cities in the country that has become a destination for the TV and Film industries. From Ball Rooms to the Convention Center and Sports Arenas, Las Vegas has the space for your next TV/Film shoot.
Why Las Vegas you ask?
Las Vegas is undoubtedly the Casino capital of the country and some may say the world. While the pandemic has put a limit to the number of people on the tables, it is calling attention to another popular part of the property, the ballroom. Traditionally used for meetings, now more and more party scenes are filmed within the space. It allows for proper social distancing as most rooms have enough space to create temporary rooms using Rental Drapery.
The Convention Center with over 1.9 million square feet, is a perfect destination when raw square footage is all you need. The home of CES for over 50 years, the Las Vegas Convention center is a versatile space. From great pic points for chandeliers and ceiling treatments to multiple room configurations that can be created with Pipe Pocket Drapery and ground supported hardware, the Vegas convention center provides options that most venues just cannot.
Need an arena or stadium shot? Las Vegas has over 10 stadium/arenas for you to choose from. The Allegiant is the newest arena in Las Vegas, it is also the home of the Raiders, UNLV Rebels and the Las Vegas Bowl. With a maximum capacity of 72,000 and construction cost of $1.84 billion, The Allegiant is a state-of-the-art facility that undoubtedly meets your needs. Monday Night Football is scheduled to be the first event on 9/21/20. From custom colored seat covers, to custom drapes for the suites, local Las Vegas suppliers can support your needs and provide quick turn around times. No need to contact your traditional Los Angeles drapery and print supplier. Turn of Events Productions is your one stop shop for all things fabric and drapery related.
What is available in Las Vegas?
Once upon a time, you would not think of Vegas as a place that was production friendly or home to local services like Rental Drapery or Professional Fabric Swag installations. Good News, those services and much more can now be “locally sourced” in Vegas.
The Las Vegas venues have had a demand for highly qualified seamstresses for many years. That has been the catalyst for companies like Turn of Events Productions to setup up shop and support the local seamstress community. In need of a custom drop, cyc, stage curtain or another theatrical curtain? You do not need to order from your city’s local supplier and pack it with the rest of your gear. Having to pay high shipping cost to get a kabuki drop made in LA, nonsense, we have the capability to provide you with an array of custom theatrical drapery with minimal turnaround time.
One of Hollywood’s darlings is rental drapery. Rentals provides the budget friendly solution that many TV/Film shoots need. Furniture, décor, scenic elements, structures, projection screens etc. can all be locally rented in Vegas. At Turn of Events Productions, we also have professional installers with rigging experience, this helps eliminate the travel and entertainment line item that out of town providers must charge. Need the glitz and glamour of a Chain Curtain or Bead Curtain, we have it in stock in many heights and configurations. Maybe your production requires a chandelier or beaded column those are also in stock. Turn of Events Productions is your rental supplier for Gold drapery and scenic elements.
Thru the years, Las Vegas became the main destination for many tradeshows and corporate events. The demand for printing was born. Vegas is now home to some of the largest print companies in the country. Standard Step and Repeats, complex custom drops and everything in between can be locally sourced in Vegas. Rental frames and lightboxes with custom prints are also a phone call away. With an extensive background in fabrics and custom applications, do not hesitate to call us for your next project, you will not be disappointed.
Professional rigging and installation are critical to any production. For years, companies flew crew in for all of their theatrical installation needs. That is no longer necessary, union and non-union talent is a phone call away. Need a ground supported installation at 24’ high or need to fly a custom piece 40 or 50 feet in the air either is possible with your local Las Vegas resource for all things drapery, Turn of Events Productions. Known for being able to put up 1000 feet of drape in less than 6 hours, we pride ourselves in making sure we execute the project safely and well within budget. Unlike others we are local and know the venues, when you hire us you will not be worried about your drape falling because someone opened the loading doc. Our hardware and install techniques are unparalleled in the market. Ask for an A Base install and be amazed by our patented hardware capability.
Need Duve (duvetyne)? Projection screen material or maybe a basic velour. All is available locally. With 30+ years of experience in the theatrical drapery market our team knows exactly what fabrics meet your projects needs. For years we worked in the LA market and supplied all designers with their fabrics. Now when you travel to Vegas you have the same level of experience (and the same person) available to help with your next project. Meshes, Muslins, Canvas, Tension, Velour, Expendables, Lighting and much more are all locally available to you when you are in Las Vegas.
Taking your show on the road was once a crazy and costly idea. When you come to Vegas, you can now rest assured that you have local resources that can assist you in the execution of your production. Turn of Events Productions and others have been servicing the trade show and corporate meeting market for years. While Exhibits are not a film shoot, our background and experience are from the TV and Film industry and we have not lost a step. Reach out and do not be surprised when you not only get a familiar voice on the other end but someone with the knowledge and experience you thought was only available to you in your local market.
