Scene Ideas was originally created as the necessary solution to meet the growing needs of the local events industry in Vancouver. The company was incorporated in 2004 by three founding partners whose combined experience in Scenic Carpentry, Project Management, Technical Direction, Live Stage Management and Design, along with a shared vision, pushed the creative envelope in Vancouver’s live event industry. This same vision has led Scene Ideas to become an industry leader in these areas and now has our team working on all of the major music festivals in Western Canada as well as many large scale corporate and private events. The company is managed by our owners who are directly involved with and collaborate on all phases of each project. This “hands on” management style at Scene Ideas is one of the key elements that ensures attention to detail in both design and execution of all projects we deliver and has our clients returning each year.
Employing a task-force of specialized and experienced tradespeople, technicians, artisans and designers, our 12,000 square foot facility is equipped to handle all aspects of fabrication from woodworking to welding, metal work, scenic painting, scenic automation and sculpting. All levels of production are seamlessly integrated via our team’s full CAD and graphics capabilities. Working drawings, engineering plans and rich renderings are synchronized to ensure comprehensive communication from concept through to execution.
Scene Ideas also maintains Western Canada’s largest inventory of Steeldeck® staging and accessories. Our ever-expanding inventory of scenic elements are in stock and can be rented ‘off-the-shelf’ or customized in-house. All of our Scene Ideas event crew are professionally trained and experienced in the best practices for staging installation and scenic construction, so please feel free to leave the heavy lifting to us.
The mandate at Scene Ideas is to provide exceptional customer service under any and all circumstances. Since its inception, the legacy of Scene Ideas has been customer satisfaction and the success of our clients has been the keystone of the company’s continued success. We are very proud of the team we have built throughout the years and our client’s success is of paramount importance for each and every member of our team.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT US . . .
“I don’t know where to start with saying THANK YOU. It literally started with a tile and a goal to win over a nonbeliever in what you could deliver – and it ended up with one of the most unique marketplaces and associated spaces every seen at a “conference”. Your willingness to listen, to draw, to be creative and to bring more than I could have imagined changed the way we moved people through the space and created interactions that were once again unexpected.”Tahira EndeanBCIC
