Putting on a show - The BOX Seat To main content

Clifton Productions illustrates their sporting event credentials, which include the 2014 Pan Pac Swimming Championships at the Gold Coast’s newly refurbished Southport Aquatic Centre, which saw the use of their new temporary cantilevered roof system.

Clifton Productions is Australia’s leading full-service rigging, lighting, electrical and staging provider to the sporting events industry, as well as exhibitions and events. With over 50-years’ experience, the company offers a streamlined production process that executes projects with precise detailing and exact timing.

As a family-owned company, Clifton’s rigging and lighting installations have made them a major force across Australasia, boasting a highly experienced staff that has worked behind the scenes from inception to completion on thousands of projects spanning sport, broadcast events, theatre and exhibitions.

Clifton’s Managing Director, Warren Maher, advised: “Our staff is the heart of our business and their professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail is seen in everything they do, whether for a small hire or a month-long production. This starts with our extensive inventory of rigging and truss equipment. While we have the largest inventory in the country, which makes us the envy of our competitors; it more importantly allows us to meet all of our clients’ needs, no matter the size.

“Clifton Productions is proud of the fact that we are never unnecessarily tied to third party providers. With our own transportation and high-reach fleet – which includes eight scissor lifts, four boom lifts, and 3 man lifts, along with our own trucks – we deliver the goods to site ourselves. We also offer unrivalled audio/visual solutions with an extensive collection of powered speaker systems, plasmas, LED Screens and drapes. A perfect complement to our staging solutions.”

In terms of the world-class service offering provided by Clifton, Maher commented: “For years we have worked with the philosophy that is ‘if we don’t have it, we will build it’. With in-house steel, aluminium, timber and electrical fabrication facilities, we welcome the challenge and do not settle for anything less than our clients’ complete satisfaction.” It was no doubt Clifton’s world-class offering that ensured them victory when it came to their winning of the contract to complete the overlay for the Pan Pac Swimming Championships at the Gold Coast’s newly refurbished Southport Aquatic Centre, which will also be a host venue for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
