GLD Productions Ltd. was created in 1990 to fill a gap in the music industry. At that time there was no dedicated company involved with the design and setting up of the backstage areas at major stadium rock venues. Commissions from the promoters of U2, Madonna and the Rolling Stones quickly established the company and then led to introductions to the major record labels and management companies.
Further projects in the hospitality and conference areas of the market followed soon after. In the years since, GLD has increasingly been involved in large multi-artist events, business conferences, corporate hospitality, even celebrity weddings. We now provide design solutions for a number of blue chip, experiential agencies and private clients in addition to supplying specialist items for the fashion industry and TV worlds across the UK and abroad. 2015 saw us marking 25 years in event hire.
Directors, Graeme Dixon and Tracy Collins have worked both as suppliers and organisers in the events industry. Their combined expertise in handling the logistics and operational side, as well as the creative and management aspects of event production have helped GLD Productions become a formidable team in the events marketplace.
We were named 'Best Event Furniture Supplier of the Year' at the Event Production Awards in 2012 and shortlisted for the same category in 2013 and for 'Best Supplier' in 2014. We have also made the shortlist as 'Best Festival Support Service' at the Festival Supplier Awards every year since 2014..
Over the years, we have built up a large hire stock of a wide range of furniture to satisfy the individual demands of our clients. Our warehouses and fleet of trucks are run by experienced supervisors, drivers and crew. Much of our equipment comes flight cased and are transported on stilages to ensure that our furniture arrives in the condition that it left us in.
GLD's distribution is centralised over 33,000 square feet of warehousing in Wincanton making us ideally positioned close to major transport links, including the M3, M4 and M5 and allowing for easy access to locations across the UK. Our equipment and personnel have been shipped across the world and have in the last year toured North and South America, Continental Europe, the Far East and Australia creating comfortable and familiar environments for our diverse clientele.
