Tony Wheeler – Nine Yard Productions on behalf of Roseclaim Ltd for V Festival 2016 said: “After being impressed by the service GAP Event Services provided in 2015 we were confident that they were the right choice for the event in 2016. Quotes were clear and communication was good from the outset. GAP met all deadlines, completing the install on schedule and the recovery ahead of time with minimum fuss. This allowed our team to focus on other areas of the event and ultimately improve the experience of everyone involved.”
