SAIL Amsterdam - PTT Adventure Boat
The SAIL AMSTERDAM is one unique event. It is a big convention for classic sail boats from all over the world. Taking place right in the center of Amsterdam, standing amidst these ancient boats makes you almost feel as if you are celebrating the returning conquerers of new worlds in the 16th century. THE PRODUCTION FACTORY was contracted by the Netherland's PTT Post to completely furnish a modern freighter as an "Adventure Boat", where young and old could wander around, play and attend various shows connected with the theme at hand.
THE PRODUCTION FACTORY took over complete production management for the refurbishing of the boat including scaffolding, tentage and decoration (besides the usual sound, lighting and A/V applications). A task that proved tricky at times in terms of safety: There are no emergency exits on a boat, so this had to be taken care of by implementing a complete crowd-control system on board the boat.
