“It’s been an absolute pleasure over the past 5 years working with SA locally based Jimmy and the Nexstage team when designing, planning and installing the boxed seating for the Adelaide Fashion Festivals whist maintaining an exceptional high end quality and attention to detail which the event required. The new mobile 8×6 trailer stage is perfect for a travelling event such as the Santos Tour Down Under where winning riders get presented at the finish line, where once again, without any delays, is always delivered and installed on time, every time. Congratulations on the past 5 brilliant years – no stopping Nexstage into the future!”

A team that can see and work with your vision with a smile on their face all within tight time frames, at any time of the day or night and any day of the week.
