Rule #1: Don't piss off the sound guy!
Free Event Production Directory app ---
The Event Production Directory (EPD), long the Bible of working event planners and production professionals, is now a free app for iPhones and now available at the iPhone App Store.
For the past 13 years, the Event Production Directory has been an online searchable database at epdweb.com along with its companion print version published and updated every year. There are 4,252 companies listed in the database.
This easy-to-use app lets users search from any radius of your current location and by the radius of any city. There are 19 different selections by type of company (Lighting, Pyro, Sound, Video, Freight Forwarders, Generators, etc.). You can search by brand name of gear each company owns or search for that specific company. Once you find what you’re looking for, another touch makes the call or emails your look-up. And the company’s websites are all there, as are their exact street location.
The EPD App is perfect for sourcing vendors in the city where your event is taking place or when you’re on a show site and the sound companies console blows up. You can quickly search for a replacement (even by brand) and find the nearest place you can get another one. Or maybe you’re working that big festival and your follow spotguy doesn’t show up. Select “Labor Companies” and get a qualified replacement.
Plans for an android version is in the works.
