On the Mountain: “What Was Your Favorite MTN Event?”

Mountain Productions has produced more than 16,000 of the world’s largest and most elite events. In our first ever “On the Mountain”, we asked five members of the Mountain team which event was their favorite to work with and why. Here’s what they had to say:


Robert Nat, Inventory Manager & Staging Supervisor

“My favorite event to be involved with was the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware. I was able to be on the first Mountain crew to help out with Firefly and I’ve been watching our involvement continue to grow. It was great to help build such an iconic event that’s become one of our favorite annual traditions.” 



Jen Kwarcinski, Sewing Operations  & Softgoods Production

“For me, it’s a tie between working on Pope Benedict’s visit to Philadelphia and Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution in Miami. There’s something about seeing your work surrounded by such influential icons and millions of people and knowing you helped to bring it all together.” 




Bill Davis, Rigging Product Specialist

“My favorite event to be a part of was the papal visits in the 1990s. I was working on the preliminary structures and not the event, itself, and it was my first time working on the pre-production side of an event. It was monumental both for me and for the millions who attended.” 



Jairo Amigon, Hoist Mechanic

“My favorite event to work with was the World Fire & Police Games in Washington, D.C. I was on the road setting up our SL250 mobile stage and I had the chance to meet with some real-life heroes and the cast and crew from Chicago Fire. It was a tremendous experience.”



 Paul Serkosky, Director of Engineering

“My favorite event, at the moment, has to be working with the 2017 NFL Draft in Philadelphia. I had more than 500 hours invested into drawing up the event and it was an enormous project. As you can see from the record-breaking attendance,  the hard work that went into bringing it all together certainly made the experience one to remember.”
