One of the first things the organiser of the world premier of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film in Wellington next Wednesday was to book a Segway Personal Transporter (PT) for event management.
With many dozens of trips up and down the red carpet required during the day of set-up, only a Segway PT could deliver the personal productivity benefits required to make an event like this run smoothly. They were hired from our Wellington dealer Bodyelectric.
It is fitting that the Segway PT plays a role at the premier, having been part of the production of this film (and many others, including Lord of the Rings and King Kong).
And this weekend in Auckland the annual Queen Street Santa Parade will benefit from a record six Segway PTs deployed by the event organisers. Five years ago the company that organises this event – Crackerjack Promotions – hired four Segway PTs…which grew to five and now six in subsequent years.
The Segway PT – a valuable, proven tool to increase personal productivity of your staff.
