Research Strategy:

The bulk of research relied on leading publications and databases focused on the events management industry. We were able to identify leading manufacturers and rental agencies in the field from these sources and then gather appropriate pictures and video from the companies' own websites and marketing media.

Unfortunately, our research team faced some challenges as we attempted to garner sale and rental price information on the various stage trailers available. This was in part because there was an enormous variety of possible specifications (size, features, rental duration, etc.) and because the majority of manufacturers and rental companies preferred to offer pricing information only to prospective customers after making contact or through sales personnel.

We gathered the information we could, including general price information available through a general media source, as provided above.
