RGS Events is the world’s leading FF&E Supplier
We have been involved in the sporting events market since the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, providing our wide range of services and in many cases, becoming a Sponsor.
Our family furniture business was established in Australia in 1950 – first as manufacturers and then developing global supplier relationships providing bespoke commercial designs for our international clients.
The business was started by my father, Harry Ramler and now three generations later, it has branched out with RGS Events providing a four-pillar FF&E solution to Games around the world – Project Management, Procurement, Dissolution and Sponsorship.
Paul Ramler AM
CEO & Project Director
We have developed a proven methodology for project managing the supply and installation of FF&E across international major events spanning 17 years. With our embedded staff and back-of-house support including international QC teams, we have strong and experienced project teams to deliver high quality, cost competitive FF&E solutions.
We operate with highly skilled teams that are generally embedded within an Organising Committee to become a seamless part of the overall procurement and logistics operations managing all aspects of the FF&E supply chain and providing detailed reporting and manuals covering Products, OH&S as well as graphic design proposals.
We work closely with Material Planners, Athletes and Broadcasters to assist in developing the FF&E scope including quantification and design (both product and Look) to produce a tailor made, commercial quality product, with a focus on new and innovative concepts for each event.
With our goal of ensuring that each item looks as good on the last day as it does on the first, we have a stringent Quality Assurance process – product quality and timeliness of their deliveries – that manages the sampling, pre-production, manufacturing, packaging and loading of all our products.
We assist with the planning & execution for Bump In and Bump Out and the safe packaging and handling of all FF&E. We coordinate the workforce – instructing crews on all related matters of OH&S – and provide detailed forecasts for both labour requirements and vehicle needs. For product supplied knocked down, we manage the Assembly Lines required on a JIT basis.
We have set high levels in regard to all areas of sustainability including but not limited to environmental and ethical standards. Being a member of SEDEX allows us to use a global resource to vet and manage our supply chain. Furthermore, we are proud to support each event we work with knowing that we have developed various agreed legacy outcomes through supporting local manufactures, charities and up-skilling the workforce.
As part of our ‘end-to-end’ solution we offer our events a complete Dissolution or Salvage strategy. Through our network of international buyers and complimentary major events we arrange the collection, packaging and shipment of all FF&E out of the Venues & Village to it’s new destination. Our planning ensures that our Bump Out deadlines are met and all assets disposed of in the most efficient, cost effective and timely manner.
