Gorilla launches hire of mobile event venue

15th October 2010

Live

event specialists Gorilla Marketing & Events are making their 44ft mobile

venue truck and trailer available for hire for the first time. Completely self

contained, the unit includes a fold down extendible stage on each side and,

when fully deployed, the trailer unit becomes a hospitality area with catering

space for up to 150 people seated, or a party layout with a fully operational,

central, fast serve bar for 300 people and a DJ playing from the roof of the

bar/serving area. Entirely self sufficient on site, it has its own power

supply, a variety of sound and lighting options including plasma TVs and DVD.

Disabled ramps and staircase access all contribute to making the unit an easy

to manage structure. The 3 different sized set-up options - small medium and

large, makes it the only vehicle of its type and marks a new direction for the

company.

Gorilla

MD Andy Butts said: "We built this trailer for a number of specific brand

events and have often been asked if we would be prepared to hire it out. We

have taken the decision to make it available to other brands, agencies and

event organisers. It has already been used to great success by energy drinks

company Monster, so we know that it works. "

The

truck is multi functional and can be used for daytime hospitality at outdoor

events through to an evening party area. Monster has used the truck and trailer

to great effect on a number of major brand events and road shows, in the UK at:

O2 Wireless, Hard Rock Calling, Download Festival, Weston Beach Race, across France

at Moto GP, Hellfest, Bospop, and FISE Montpellier as well as Graspop in

Belguim and the Mountain bike world cup across Europe.

"Because

of its versatility and with so many options for branding, we can make sure that

each time it's deployed it's different from the last and is tailored to suit

the brand and the event." concluded Butts.
