Don't take our word for it...

L’OREAL told us how much they were happy with the entire team and the great show we have all organized for them. Even Diana Krall and Elvis Costello told us how happy they were working with us! I must specially thank you, RIGGIT! You have done an amazing job for us with this L’OREAL project; from the prep side, everything was precisely and deeply prepared.
On-site your team was well briefed and dispatched. We have been amazed by their skill level; managers and the entire crew. We have then saved a lot of time during set up. On top of that, you have been very flexible and we really do appreciate that.

Beyond the quality of work, Riggit’s responsiveness to BC Place’s calls and attentiveness to our needs has been exceptional, as exemplified by the response to the roof deflation incident at BC Place in January – a repair completed without loss of business that would not have been possible without Riggit’s involvement.

I speak for the MVKA Production Department when I say that it was a great experience and we look forward to a continued relationship with Riggit in the future….Gathered from our client’s response, it is apparent that we have satisfied and even exceeded their objectives. This quality of work can only be achieved by working with professional team players like yourself and your team.

Trevor WymanSenior ProducerMVKA Productions

I had a great time working with you and your team. Jaime was great to coordinate with as well! Everything was set up seamlessly and you guys did an awesome job taking care of all the details.

SOLUTIONS. Comes to mind when I think of Riggit. That is what they provide I took a very large program into Vancouver that had many layers to it. I counted on Riggit for their full production support. Their bandwidth was second to none. They know how to get things done period.

John MalamazianProduction ManagerAvista Studios

Riggit has become arguably the top Western Canadian supplier of rigging services, equipment and technicians. Equally adept in designing and installing the hangs for stock truss as well as unusual ‘one of a kind’ pieces, Riggit is at home both indoors and outdoors.

Marti KulichExecutive ProducerCeremonies, Festivals & Special Events

Not only are you one of the best rigging companies I have worked with throughout the world, but the value you bring in seeing the ‘bigger picture’ for the client would make the Vancouver Conference & Exhibition Centre an even more attractive destination for corporate clients.

Mark ThomsonPresidentThomson Productions Inc

Thank you very much for going the extra mile and delivering amazing Barco Escape installs... We really appreciate all the hard work your team put in. Escape is performing well at their locations and Cineplex (and movie guests) are ecstatic to see Escape in action. I know there are countless others who contributed to the project but I had the most direct contact with each of you so thank you for the collaboration and please pass along the word to your great team members. Looking forward to partnering again in the future.
