Staging company finding its way

By May 3, 2021Media, News

Despite their industry being challenged by the pandemic, Isaac Kinakin and his Richmond-based staging and event design company are persevering.

“This is the only industry I’ve ever (worked in)—it’s very near and dear to my heart,” says Kinakin, the director of business development at Scene Ideas Inc.

During the initial stages of the pandemic, Kinakin says things changed “within one fell swoop.” Initially smaller cuts were made to extraneous spending and wages, but after a couple of months the company had to shut down everything for about a month.
