PRG supports the FIVB & VNL as a global technical production partner in Rimini

From 25 May to 27 June 2021, the Volleyball Nations League (VNL) will be held in the beautiful city of Rimini, in Emilia Romagna, Italy, However, due to Covid-19, this edition is taking place entirely in a secure bubble totally isolated from any contact with the outside world in order to preserve the athletes and the production team. 16 men's and 16 women's teams will compete for victory.
PRG is proud to support the FIVB & VNL as a global technical production partner for this edition and also to offer its services and expertise in terms of support and advice on the technologies used.

As a global technical production partner, PRG provided project management, technical direction, design, coordination of on-site technical staff, lighting design and much more!

"The FIVB has renewed its confidence in us for this new competition," says Thierry Kra, General Manager of PRG France, "Our involvement in the Technical Management, in the Design with #ConceptK as well as the support of our local Alliance in Italy are once again the strong points that characterises us."

In addition to the services, PRG provided a wide range of technologies including rigging, lighting, audio, digital intercom, video & media servers and power distribution for no less than 2 competition pitches, 2 warm-up pitches and 6 training pitches.
Over 500 fixtures were installed from the Vari-Lite, Martin, SGM, GLP catalogues as well as PRG's proprietary Icon Edge® and Icon Beam® products.

We also installed 100 m2 of video screens of Black Pearl 3, ROE Blackface screens divided into 7 screens and 500 PRG Revolution Blades were installed all around the 2 competition fields allowing a 270° interactive display.

No less than 9 semi-trailers of material and almost 1000 days of labour will have been necessary for this project.

PRG relied on the strength of the PRG Alliance network for this project; complementing PRG EMEA's experts & department heads with teams of local technicians & team leaders from New Light Group, PRG Alliance's Italian partner #OneTeam

PRG has once again teamed up with ConceptK for the lighting design & set design

A great collective team result of which we are proud.
