The Shipping Monster, provider of logistics and transportation to touring exhibitions, attractions and the entertainment industry, has announced partnerships with Exhibition Site Management Ltd. in the UK and Drew Florida Lighting Design (DFLD) in New York.
As a result of these new partnerships, the company will be able to expand its offering, providing its clients with a full suite of services in the speciality logistics sector.
Expertise in production management
With more than 200 offices around the globe, The Shipping Monster supplies transport services, customs brokerage and production management for the attractions and entertainment industry.
DFLD founder Drew Florida and Rob Gammage, founder of Exhibition Site Management, have decades of experience in production management that they can now bring to this collaboration with the Shipping Monster. Both have installed exhibitions in museums, galleries and science centres around the world.
Speaking about the partnerships with DFLD and Exhibition Site Management, a company spokesperson says:
“Throughout the challenges posed by the pandemic and the disruption to worldwide travel and events, The Shipping Monster has provided advice and solutions to global clients. With Gammage and Florida’s addition, we are pleased to offer our clients an answer to one of the more pressing issues of the day: how to set up and break down installations around the world in the face of reduced staff and travel restrictions.”
Last year, The Shipping Monster was a sponsor of several sessions at the inaugural blooloop V-Expo, including a keynote session on the experience economy and the pandemic, featuring a live Q&A with Joe Pine, co-author of The Experience Economy and Eddie Kemsley, CEO of Dreamland.
In addition, it also sponsored another keynote session, presented by Matthew Naylor, CEO & President of the National World War I Museum, and sponsored the Theme Park Networking Lounge for discussions, text, and video chat.
