October 2, 2013 —LOS ANGELES, CA — Grosh Backdrops and Drapery rolled out the red carpet last week for a few select industry leaders to demonstrate its patented backdrop and drapery lifting system, the Backdrop LIFT. Designed and developed by Grosh internally, the Backdrop LIFT caters to organizations that may not have the proper equipment needed to incorporate backdrops or drapery into their events. The telescoping system is simple to assemble and operate, needing only 15 minutes for a complete 17’h x 40’w set up with one or two people. Requiring no additional equipment, the system is easy to transport and can be utilized in almost any space.
Guests were welcomed by Grosh President, Amanda Uhlein. “We were very excited to demonstrate this new product and get some feedback as to how it could address some of the challenges in the event and production industries.”
David Wright, Director of Sales and presenter at the event, walked the guests through the demonstration with his two assistants. “We have been using the Backdrop LIFT for a few months now and the benefits of using this system instead of the standard pipe and base are huge. I couldn’t wait to share it with some of our clients by actually showing them the benefits.” David also shared with them the many other uses that clients who have rented and purchased the Backdrop LIFT for, including lighting, banner stands and hanging walls to create temporary small spaces.
Guests gave positive feedback after the demonstration, commenting that they enjoyed how much time and labor is saved during set up. You could also see their wheels spinning regarding possible other uses for the Backdrop LIFT.
The Backdrop LIFT is available for rent or purchase.
