In The Trenches

How lasting relationships are built in a small amount of time.

On behalf of everyone at Bow & Arrow Productions, I want to send out a big THANK YOU to all our vendors and those involved with the events in New York City.

For the last 6 months our team has been planning a series of events in New York City. The event's We’ve put in countless hours working out every detail, getting permits for every venue, working while on cramped planes and making several site trips to the Big Apple.

Last Wednesday, most of our team packed their bags, said good-bye to their families and boarded a plane to NYC.

The events would take place on Monday night at Rockefeller Center, Tuesday at Yankee Stadium and Wednesday night on Ellis and Liberty Islands. Even after spending half a year planning, there was still much to do before the events kicked off. So we packed our bags and headed into battle.

Over the next week our team would develop relationships with cab drivers, hotel staff, stage hands, grounds keepers, ferry boat drivers and many more. Seeing all these different people come together to achieve a common goal is an amazing scene. Although most went days without sleep, there is a huge sense of satisfaction when you stand back and look at the final product.

Putting together an event of any size takes team work and through this teamwork, a special kind of relationship is built. Through the struggles and challenges of the week’s events, unique and lasting relationships were built over a short amount of time. Going through the battle of putting together a show is what builds special relationships with our vendors and clients.
