Showforce wins back SPOTY contract

Crewing company Showforce has won the contract to deliver crewing services for this year's BBC Sports Personality of the Year event at Excel.

Showforce was awarded the contract by Unspun. It will provide event crew for more than 550 shifts, working across all departments including TV, lighting, rigging, sound and screen.

This year’s event will be broadcast live on Sunday 16 December.

The 2012 ceremony marks the fourth time Showforce has delivered the event in the last five years.

Ian Spendlove, chairman of Showforce, said winning back the contract is "extremely pleasing" for the team.

"We are very much looking forward to working with Unspun to create what will undoubtedly be a memorable evening. In a year where our work has been heavily concentrated on delivering some of the world’s most renowned sporting events, it seems fitting that we shall be ending 2012 with a sporting theme."
