Event set-up for presidential campaigning in Iowa

Grand River Center logoMost political events are usually rush jobs with little lead time, due to security reasons and planning factors. This presidential campaigning event for Donald Trump was no different. We received the call to set up several 5-row bleachers and multiple-sized “pipe and drape” at about noon and had the event set up by late in the evening. We get the calls because we are able to put big events together quickly.
