Delta has been at the heart of the Channel Islands’ events scene for over 20 years. The company has grown from hiring small PA and lighting systems from a chicken shed to housing the latest technical equipment, staging, decorations and props in three large warehouses.
Our 16 full-time staff produce corporate conferences, bespoke events, themed parties, weddings and intimate celebrations in Jersey and Guernsey. Delta has helped thousands of events come to life using our creative flair, technical equipment and expertise.
Events are Delta’s true love and that shines through at every function, large or small. The hallmark of a Delta production is technical excellence combined with creativity.
We are bursting with great ideas and have the technical know-how and equipment to ensure every event is a smooth-running success.
We can also support your event with equipment hire, media production and presentation services.
Our skills are backed up by our first-class customer care. From your first phone call to our staff on site, at Delta we take great pride in our customer service, and that’s why our clients return again and again.
‘It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but the meaning we attach to those events.’
Alex is a Delta Technician who has worked his way up the ranks. He came on board six years ago through the Advance to Work Scheme and is now one our talented tech team.
When he joined Delta, Alex didn’t have any technical knowledge but he did have a keen interest in the industry and that interest was fed by our team to help him develop into a Delta Senior Production Technician.
Alex has trained in all aspects of the technical side of the production business. He is equally at home working with a band on a digital sound desk, vision mixing cameras for a corporate conference or programming moving lighting desks for a party.
We think he is a rare talent. Alex has an innate understanding of what goes into events and how to take a great event and make it even better.CONTACT US
Craig has worked in the events industry for nearly two decades and is Delta’s Chief Video Engineer. He leads all aspects of video projects which can be anything from designing and delivering the very best HD projection systems, to training staff and maintaining all of Delta’s equipment.
As well as some of Delta’s most spectacular events, Craig has been a part of some huge music festivals like Glastonbury. He cites a Prince concert at Hop Farm in 2011 as his all-time career and personal highlight.
As you’d expect for a ‘techie’, Craig regularly attends courses to develop his knowledge and keep his technology skills up to date. Whether it’s rigging, specialised training on video and lighting equipment and health and safety qualifications or getting his forklift and cherry picker driver’s licence, Craig takes his qualifications and training very seriously. He loves to walk into a new venue and see a blank canvas that can be turned it into something magical for the client.CONTACT US
Cristin, or ‘Crick’ as he is known, co-founded Delta in 1996, having previously worked for the Jersey Opera House and in the UK as a Technician.
As one of the Directors, Crick manages the sales and installation side of Delta’s day-to-day work and he loves live events that involve live streaming, integrating mobile apps and videoconferencing. Crick is fascinated by how audio-visual technology is a constantly changing world. He is currently looking at ‘Bring Your Own Device’ or BYOD solutions, either for the presenter or for the audience, and web streaming of events where the presenters can go live via Whatsapp or Skype.
His favourite Delta moments are when senior business people express their gratitude for a memorable event and for helping them look and sound their best on stage. He cites Cherie Blair as one of the nicest people has has worked with and Gyles Brandreth as the most entertaining.
For Crick, a corporate Delta event should always sparkle, with the client’s message taking centre stage, and he wants every private event to have the ‘gasp’ factor - surprising and delighting guests when they walk into the venue.CONTACT US
Damian, or Dinx as we call him, has the widest remit of anyone at Delta. First and foremost he oversees the health and safety aspects of our productions and ensures that the entire Delta kit catalogue is maintained correctly. That in itself is no mean feat, but he also contributes to the production team, particularly when we are faced with a particularly complex build.
Aside from his duties as Delta’s Maintenance & Health and Safety Manager, Dinx is also a superb welder and gets involved in building props, such as the incredible giant metal-framed bugs he created for a rainforest-themed ball. He used to be a professional diver and we call upon his underwater skills when installing water props.
Having this kind of talent in the team is what gives Delta an edge in terms of creative event production.CONTACT US
Damon is our Guernsey Operations Manager and is responsible for dealing with the overall logistics of Delta’s Guernsey events business. Damon is also involved in setting up and supporting all of our Guernsey events activity
Damon brings a wealth of experience with him; in addition to working as a roadie for iconic ‘90s bands ‘Hothead’ and ‘The The’, he organised parties in London’s East End before moving to Spain to work with Café Del Mar. Having launched several new venues across the country, Damon based himself in Marbella where, as a music director and event organiser, he managed events, sourced music acts and worked as a full-time DJ.
With a true passion for audio, Damon loves working with Delta’s first-class sounds desks and sound systems - kit that you don’t tend to find in the usual HiFi audiophile setting. The RGB link, for mixing video images is another favourite toy. Having come from a DJ world where soundscapes are mixed together, Damon loves learning the art of mixing video imagery together seamlessly.
With a true understanding of how lighting can make or break an event, Damon is particularly keen on our chauvet or martin beams, which can really add to a production. Seeing how lighting can affect the mood of an event and add to its ambience is a real buzz.CONTACT US
Darren has a degree in Theatre and Performance Technology and has been in the industry for 13 years, having started at the Jersey Arts Centre in 2003.

Delta’s Operations Director started with the company over 20 years ago. From humble beginnings painting walls, he has risen through the ranks from Technician to Hire Manager and now directs all of Delta’s operations.
Gibson has day-to-day control of the technical crew and liaises with the project management team, ensuring that every event goes smoothly. Get him talking about past events and he is bound to mention the funeral of Blackburn Football Club owner and former Jersey resident Jack Walker. A sad day for the congregation, but Gibson got to meet several football legends. As you’d expect from someone who has been with the company for so long, Gibson knows every single bit of kit that Delta owns (no small feat). His encyclopaedic knowledge extends to knowing where any piece of equipment is at any given time. Like all the Delta crew, Gibson has very high standards but is very much part of the team. Whether it’s sweeping the warehouse floor or masterminding a gala event, his eye for detail ensures Delta is a well-oiled machine.CONTACT US
Jon has been working in the events industry for 20 years, since completing an Audiovisual Diploma in 1995. His role is a mixture of creative, technical and people skills, realising ideas and bringing them to life. Jon particularly enjoys working with alternative venues that are aligned with an event or breathing new life into a venue or event format. He is also real foodie and believes that the right catering can make a huge difference to an event.
Jon is fascinated by the cocktail of elements coming together in the right way to create an energy that is greater than the sum of its parts - getting this right creates magic.
The Dandelion Project’s events have been great for Jon to work on, where the content is compelling, or even life changing event, and the brief allows him to do what he does best without compromise. He cites the most recent TEDx event at St Pierre Park as a real pleasure to work on, as both the client and the production lead.CONTACT US
Delta’s Project Manager can fix pretty much anything. As a former motorcycle mechanic, we call upon Jonny’s abilities to fix kit and build bespoke props and staging.
Jonny has been with Delta for 10 years and like many of our team he has learnt the business from the bottom up. That means he has a 360° view over each production. He can see a project from all angles - from checking out the venue to the spec, crew and equipment required.
He takes that first overview and vision of an event and helps to translate the client’s wishes into reality. Throughout the whole process he has a calm manner that both our clients and crew love. Seeing the whole process through from the initial brief to packing away the last bit of equipment is what Jonny loves about his job.
Away from his day job, there’s no time for tinkering with motorbikes any more, nowadays Jonny is most likely be found spending time with his son.CONTACT US
