If you are a big fan of reality talent shows then you no doubt already know that X Factor 2017 will soon be hitting TV screens across the nation. It only seems like yesterday that Honey G was giving Missy Elliott a run for her money (well, kind of) and Matt Terry took the X Factor crown home.
It seems hard to believe that the series is already in its 14th season, and it’s just as popular as ever with viewers and contestants alike. Judges Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh will soon be on the lookout for the nation’s next big thing and auditions have already started across the country. FHUK were proud to be a part of the auditions at the O2 in May when we supplied and installed 2,000 chairs for the show’s contestants.
Chairs With Real Star Quality
When it comes to supplying chairs of the highest quality on time and on budget we really stand out from the crowd. Supplying and setting out 2,000 chairs in one venue would be a challenge for many companies, but our team took it all in their stride, as this time-lapse video shows. Completing a project like this successfully requires careful logistical planning with venue owners, organisers and our own teams. Not only do we have to pick, load and transport the chairs to the venue, but we have to agree set times to enter the venue and ensure a quick turnaround. Safety and security is also a top priority in venues of this size.
For this particular project, the client chose our black polyprop chairs. Not only are they lightweight and versatile, but they are also easy to stack and set out. This is an essential consideration with so many chairs to supply and install within a set timeframe. These chairs are also available in very large quantities and offer the perfect seating solution for large venues that need seating for many people at the same time.
So, Did We Seat The Star Of The Future?
It’s quite exciting to think that one of our chairs could have seated the 2017 X Factor winner, and that this person could go on to worldwide fame. With the stress and anxiety that auditioning can create, it’s also reassuring that we could have supplied many contestants with a comfortable chair on which to reflect, relax, practice and prepare for their big moment on stage. We would like to wish all X Factor contestants the best of luck for the forthcoming auditions.
