LMG Freelance Technician Guidelines

General Information

On every show, one LMG, Inc. crew member is designated as “report technician”.  The report technician is the LMG representative who works directly with our client and is ultimately responsible for all decisions and actions on site.  The report technician must be aware of any discussions you have with our client concerning the show.  While on site, crew members will receive all instructions and call times from the LMG report technician.  At the end of the show, you must confirm your hours with the LMG report technician.

Call Times

Technicians are advised to arrive on show site approximately fifteen minutes prior to given call time to ensure the proper location/ballroom and to identify the LMG report technician.  However, billable time does not begin until the actual client call time.

Billing Information – Direct Billing

Billing Information – Pay Agent (MertzCrew, etc)

There are companies LMG Technical Services works with that offer pay agency for technicians. They will provide insurance to cover you. Other details will vary by company. For more information please contact TRC@lmg.net  or  invoicelabor@lmg.net. If you are paid through any of these companies you will need to adhere to their process rules but also LMG Technical Service’s requirement of submitting your information within 48 hours of the strike date.

Call-Time Changes

Due to the nature of our business, call times can change quite often.  Every effort will be made to notify technicians of any changes prior to call time.  However, it is the responsibility of the freelance technicians to provide a reliable means of contact.


Dress codes vary from show to show. Casual dress such as jeans, golf and T-shirts, and sneakers is acceptable during set-up, strike and most rehearsals. Clothing with offensive, inappropriate designs, stamps or other company’s logos, including your own are not allowed. During the show, minimum dress for men and women will be cotton pants and button-down or polo shirts.  For General Sessions and Meal Functions, coat and tie for men and dress slacks and blouse for women may be required. Please check with the show scheduler and/or the crew lead as to the attire needed for each call.

However, if there is a specific dress code for an event, this will be addressed in a crew letter from the Project Manager or AE.

Venue Attire

Dress standards for LMG supported venues are based on the standards of each venue. Within our supported venues we are working with corporate clients and need to project a corporate image.

Technicians should use good judgement as they are responsible for ensuring that their dress and grooming is appropriate to the task being performed and that it projects a positive image to co-workers, customers, clients, and the public without being a distraction or unsafe.

All venue technicians should dress in clean, neat, clothing, and be personally groomed. No rips, holes, tears, or worn-out clothing or shoes. No excessive accessories – chains from belts or wallets, over-sized belt buckles, over-sized or excessive jewelry or accessories as these can be dangerous as well as distracting. Hats are not to be worn indoors, and shorts are not acceptable for professional appearance.

LMG, venue specific, or plain, polo or button-down shirts should be worn during all working hours. Appropriate pants (MCC no jeans, OCCC– jeans only during load-in/load-out when clients are not present). For work in any supported hotel venues, plain, button down black shirts or LMG-logo button down shirts and black slacks (“show blacks”) are required for all show calls. In addition, appropriate and safe shoes need to be worn during all working hours.

Earbuds are not to be worn during active load-in/load-out areas, on the show floor or in show rooms, or in any public concourse at any time.

If there are any questions about this policy, or clarification needed, please reach out to the Venue Operations Supervisor or the Account Executive of that event for clarification.
