The Intimate Mode is ideal for conferences, seminars, speech nights, vehicle and product launches, and theatrical productions. Using extensive soft wall curtaining, we can produce reduced intimate modes to specifically meet the needs of each event. This mode is extreme versatile and can accommodate small to medium sized events whilst still providing all of the backstage and production advantages of a major entertainment facility.
