Service Providers Expression of Interest
The Hills Shire Council is seeking expressions of interest from technical service providers who can offer audio visual and technical event production services to hirers of the Pioneer Theatre, for theatrical performances, seminars or banquet functions.
To be considered as part of this Expression of Interest, you will be required to successfully attend a site induction to demonstrate your technical capability, supply relevant insurances and WHS documentation as well as a Working with Children Check upon request, and supply marketing material to be listed on websites and other marketing outlets as an approved service provider.
This Expression of Interest is intended to generate a non-exclusive list of technical service providers who are familiar with the venue and technical equipment to hirers of the theatre seeking technical assistance. There is no cost to be included on the list.
The hirer may use their own technical support person, who is not on the Council’s recommended list, as long as the chosen person has been inducted into the Theatre prior to any event.
Council will not:
- provide staff support for complex audio, video and lighting advice or adjustment and operation of equipment in relation to operating the theatre for an event.
- recommend any suppliers or accept any liability from hirers or suppliers in relation to audio visual contractual arrangements entered into between your company and the hirer of the facility.
