green-goGreen shoots of recovery seen by the Electro Kabuki team
UK - The team behind theatrical reveal system at Electro Kabuki HQ has witnessed glimmers of hope turn into resurgent interest from companies in the events and theatrical sector. New enquiries from organisations in Europe, the Middle East and the US are seen as ‘green shoots’ that are indicators of renewed optimism and increasing confidence in the industry’s ability to recover.
New enquiries include interest from a company in Norway looking to acquire its own Electro Kabuki system having rented the intelligent reveal technology in the past. The company is planning a tour later this year. Other quote requests have landed from the United Arab Emirates and from the United States.
In addition, the team at Electro Kabuki has recently packaged a full demonstration system and despatched it to the Dutch National Opera & Ballet in Amsterdam. While a long-term Electro Kabuki partner in France has made a significant investment in 40 new dropper modules and had more than a dozen of its existing modules refurbished ready for new business in the coming months.
“We all know that the theatrical and events industry ground to a standstill in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic but there were indicators that all was not lost with enquiries continuing to trickle in,” explains Tim Lloyd, Electro Kabuki product specialist. “But now we are seeing a notable upturn in interest with an enquiry level that has the hallmark of returning confidence. We hope that the Chancellor’s spring budget announcement of almost £400 million for the Arts & Culture sector will serve to hasten the industry’s recovery.”
