Gallowglass expands in Europe

Events crewing company Gallowglass has opened two offices in Paris and Monaco.

A Google Arts event at the Musée d’Orsay and Paris Fashion Week have kick-started Gallowglass’ expansion.

Gallowglass managing director Nick Grecian said: "The fact that we undertake jobs right across mainland Europe, and consistently in France and Spain made it essential to have local bases, and we opened in Barcelona and Nice at the same time.

"Since 2005, our Cote d’Azur activity has enjoyed solid growth so it was a natural progression to establish a permanent presence in Monaco as well."

The company’s Paris office has been four years in the planning. The company established its first French base in Nice in 2006 and has become a regular presence along the Cote d’Azur, particularly at the Cannes Palais des Festivals, Nice Acropolis and Grimaldi Forum Monaco.

Trent Sprules, who oversees both the Paris and Cote d’Azur operations, said: "We’ve got to grips with the French tax system, labour laws and workforce costs and have achieved co-operative liaison with the French authorities and suppliers.

"The fact that most of our workforce are bilingual gives both UK and French clients added confidence, and with several years’ operation in France under our belts already we are entirely familiar with all of the key venues." 

Crews can be booked either through Gallowglass’ UK headquarters or direct at the Nice, Monaco and Paris offices.
