Mobile stage company Stageline has revealed it was recently able to deploy its SAM750 solution at New York’s Metlife Stadium in a record time.

The 130’ x 56’ stage took 216 labour hours to install at the venue last weekend, compared to other mobile staging solutions that, in previous years, often took more than 2,400 hours.

SAM750 was used as part of the Hot 97 Summer Jam at the 82,500-capacity venue and after the event ended on the Sunday evening, a team of 18 workers finished disassembling the stage in just 12 hours.

Ian Kelly, producer of the event, said: “The SAM750 deploys so quickly that is has a considerable impact on our operating costs. It also gives us precious breathing room, in order to handle the many unforeseeable circumstances that may occur when setting up for a large event.

“Savings like these in production costs allow us to enhance the overall experience for our concert-goers, by investing more in the show.”
