Confetti for Arsenals F.A. Cup Victory Parade
Arsenal are the tournaments most successful team with 13 victories and Arsene Wenger the most successful manager with an incredible 7 wins to his name.
As the final whistle was blown at Wembley and the plays and fans celebrated, we started to put the wheels in motion to activate our plan for the following day’s victory parade around North London where we were due to be providing Special Effects for the team when they returned to the stadium, which in this instance was a huge confetti shower utilising 8 Master Blasters and 4 Stadium Shots.
Victory parades have to be planned well in advance of the match, before the result is known so the job is not guaranteed. The club also don’t want to pay full price for the services if they end up not utilising them so a flexible approach has to be delivered by all suppliers.
We agree two prices with the client; a fire and non-fire charge, so in turn we push our suppliers for some flexibility to help us achieve this. We negotiate orders for equipment such as the CO2 gas to power the Confetti machines on a sale or return basis. We ask our staff to be flexible, so that they hold the date in preparation to work but we won’t confirm the job until the end of the game the night before, so that if needs be we can cancel them without charge and therefore save the client money.
Well the great news was that Arsenal won, our plan rolled seamlessly into action and we turn the sky Red and White with beautiful confetti all around The Emirates Stadium as thousands of fans cheered and celebrated with their hero’s.
