About Yvan Miron

I’ve always loved being around a stage. When I was younger (ok, young then) a guitar landed on my lap. I played it, enjoyed it got better at it and went on stage for fun.. A stage environment to me spells excitement and adventure. No matter what part of the stage you stand on there’s a great feeling to it, a high energy moment to enjoy. Stageline is one such adventure that has me completely absorbed and the excitement is hard to shake.  The company is like a guitar. I started it, got better at it and…. you know the rest. As President and GM I can’t be more challenged and on my toes. Years went by developing mobile stages from our pioneer days to today and from proposing the idea locally to promoting the innovative concept internationally. The passion today is still ongoing. I am proud of Stageline and its number one reputation, proud that we better understand technical and safety issues thanks to thirty years of hands on staging experience. From scratching a guitar to scratching my head, I still get to play in a great band, the Stageline Band. And the results are harmonious and can be summed up in just a few chords: easy, profitable, safe and built to last. Sustainable products from a sustainable company from sustainable me. Not a bad line, come to think of it, maybe someone could turn it into a good song.

Woodstock no more

Think of Woodstock and it conjures up words like ‘’changed Rock and Roll’’ ‘’500,000 people’’, ‘’legendary performances’’ but also ‘’Sanitation issues’’. The film footage makes you wonder if you would have braved the horrible conditions the audience had to put up with to see Hendrix play at 8:30 am on that last day (ok, of…
