SICO® stages aid Manchester Arena to become busiest in the world.
Since opening in 1995 Manchester Arena has been using the SICO® ‘Roll n’ Set’ stage system for its 21,000-capacity venue. Now attracting more than one million visitors per year, the venue is one of the busiest in the world and the largest indoor arena in Europe.
‘Thanks to the simplicity and flexibility of the SICO® stage system we are able to offer our customers virtually any configuration of stage they require, including runways, side wings and height variations,’ commented John Clarkson, Senior Event Technician. ‘The key benefit to us is the system’s versatility and the speed of set-up; 6 staff can set up a complete 60’ x 40’ stage from scratch in just two hours. This enables us to book events back to back, meaning we can maximise our efficiency, profitability and can offer our clients a wide range of production slots,’ he continued.
