When FOCUS 2021 opens tomorrow Qdos Event Hire, the leading of supplier of temporary accommodation and welfare facilities, will announce the official launch of its Location Facilities division at the highly anticipated event. Held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, from 7th – 8th December, FOCUS is a meeting place for international production with show organisers promising a vibrant event that will connect, reconnect and share global production expertise across film, TV, advertising, animation and games.

Qdos has cemented its role within the UK’s film & TV industry over several years, building a client portfolio that includes major broadcasters, production companies and studios, as well as a network of freelance location and production managers. Kit supplied is everything from production villages built to exact specifications that include a variety of cabins, modular buildings, restrooms, washrooms and canteens on location, to high end bespoke projects, including a 50-bay CTX modular building installed at Pinewood Studios for Lucasfilm.

Managing director, James Thomas explains why the company has chosen to launch a dedicated Location Facilities division: “The number of clients we were working with in broadcasting, TV and then film has grown exponentially in the last two years. We’ve found that our team’s outdoor event experience and knowledge has been hugely beneficial to our film and television client base. Our account and project managers work closely with our clients in the sector to understand their specific requirements ensuring we create tailored solutions that meet both budget and production needs. This coupled with the array and quantity of equipment within our fleet and the multitude of applications it offers ensure it can be deployed to create an exact solution for any production.”

The Qdos Location Facilities team will be available on stand M80 at FOCUS 2021.
