Pitch or project – we provide the technical professionals you need for your planning and designing work.

We will gladly share our design icons with you. For your presentation, we can assist you with renderings or animations. If you are interested in taking a look at other events, we will attempt to get you access in consultation with our customers.

Our support for planners and designers is usually free. However, if your pitch requires extensive services from us, the terms of cooperation should be discussed. We would be happy to discuss your needs in person.

Call us or send us an email if you would like to talk to us without obligation.

Media content

Simple video graphics, complex film productions or event websites: Our content specialists will gladly advise you.

We provide content for your terminals, screens, video projection or LED screens. For example, our graphic designers create charts and presentations, our Production people produce films and animations, and our web designers design and build websites, apps and other web applications. Our Creative Director supervises the creative designs and coordinates the whole team.

We are also happy to provide comprehensive consultation regarding hardware and content. We look at your communication goals and suggest which hardware and content you could use to achieve your goals. 


Pre-programming includes defining the lighting moods, videos to be played, and many other details that can be handled while preparing a program. This saves a lot of time and money on-site.

With the use modern lighting control systems and multimedia programs, it makes obvious sense to do much of the work during pre-production. This involves reproducing the event location as precisely as possible using 3D simulation, then enriching it with décor, lighting and video effects. This helps with the programming, but also helps the customer visualize it.

Doing so frees up a lot of time and prevents hectic stress at the venue. Usually, it allows for shortening the rental period, which also significantly reduces costs. 


Our riggers are there to help wherever there are loads to be borne. An event without rigging is hardly conceivable today – and not just at on-stage events.

Rigging refers to the hanging or positioning of loads. Riggers are responsible for the proper assembly and disassembly of the load-carrying devices and the loads attached to them. Static and dynamic loads are taken into account, along with the maximum load capacities of the suspension points and the overall construction, and the permissible distribution of loads. In outside areas, wind loads must also be considered.

The chief rigger is also responsible for ensuring that all necessary structural analyses have been obtained and are adhered to. 

Stage automation

"Flying" people or objects, turntables, lifting platforms, movable LED walls, etc. - the Stage Automation department handles the moving elements at your event.

Understandably, the strictest possible safety guidelines apply to the movement of loads or people over the audience. The requirements to be met by the technology are extremely high, as absolute reliability is necessary. The use of this kind of automation effects is therefore relatively expensive and requires plenty of preparation time.

However, the effort is worth it: Moving elements are usually a much-appreciated special effect – in some cases, they are even the highlight of the event.

Let our experienced specialists advise you.


Simple lighting – or elaborate mood lighting with all kinds of effects? Our equipment and our expert staff allow us to meet all lighting requirements in the event area from our own inventory. Artificial or natural lighting, spot- or floodlighting, illumination, effects or decorative lighting – for over 25 years, lighting has been one of PRG’s core competencies. No other provider can deliver the selection and quantities we can offer you. We carry brands from many manufacturers and even produce our own product lines. This enables us to always provide our customers with what is best for their project. 

Video technology

Cameras, vision mixers, media servers, screens, projections, video walls – we not only provide the required technology, but also the appropriate crew of technicians and creative people for your project.

Video technology processes range from the production of a video signal, for example by a camera or the transmission of a computer signal, to editing using an editing program or a video mixer, to the recording or playback. Playback involves screens, projectors, LED walls or other (dis)play devices. Let us advise you! 

Audio technology

Flawless sound reproduction is essential for any kind of event. We mainly use speaker systems from the leading company in the field, MeyerSound. Our portfolio includes all items that are required for excellent sound, from the 10cm x 10cm MM4 to 170Kg M3D Line Array top speakers. Of course, we also have quality systems from other manufacturers.

Our team of experts will be happy to compile a customized system for your needs. Talk to us.

IT & Communication

IT is a broad field:

This segment includes hardware and software for computer systems and various types of communication technology. Whether you need a single terminal or a complex computer network; wireless devices or a complex matrix intercom; networks for audio, video or data signals – our IT professionals take responsibility for providing it. We use hardware and software from all widely known manufacturers.


Whether from a fixed power supply or from generators – having reliable power at an event is crucial. We ensure there are no interruptions to the supply.

From 3 x 16A Schuko splitters to 3 x 2000 A distributors – our Power department handles the planning and implementation of your power supply. Many of our power distributors have network connections for remote monitoring of voltage, frequency, current and other data. This lets us immediately determine if a problem is indicated somewhere.

If the existing electrical outlets are not sufficient or if you want to use a redundant, network-independent system, mobile generators are used. We provide the required infrastructure from our own stocks – generators are usually rented from reputable local suppliers. 


Personnel lifts, work platforms and forklifts are just some of the tools that we provide for an efficient handling of your project.

With the exception of personnel lifts, we rent all equipment from local providers. Usually, however, it still makes sense to order through us, because we know exactly what we need and can respond more quickly to changes if we instruct the suppliers themselves. Often we can also offer you better prices, because we have framework agreements in place with some suppliers.

On request we are also happy to put you in touch with providers we feel can be recommended.

Approvals / Permits and structural reports

Our accredited experts take care of obtaining regulatory permits and produce the required records of inspections.

Rules for places of assembly, accident prevention regulations, and the Working Hours Act just some of the laws and directives that must be observed when planning to host an event. Depending on the type of event, it can quickly necessitate the involvement of five or more public authorities: e.g. the building authorities, air traffic control, police, fire department, trade inspection authorities, etc. One also needs to consider whether structural analyses, inspection books or special permits are required for the use of fireworks, lasers, and the like. GEMA, the German artists' social welfare fund, and the tax office (tax on foreigners, sales tax, etc.) will also demand their share.

There are so many different laws and regulations that only experienced professionals are able to take all the necessary measures into consideration.

Anyone who is not absolutely sure of who has – or is permitted to have – what responsibilities at an event should definitely get professional advice. Talk to our specialists. We will be happy to advise you.
