Bob Dagger, founder and CEO of the Harlequin Group

“When I launched my company in England nearly 40 years ago, I aimed at designing floors for theatre and dance using new, advanced materials. I am pleased to note that today, nearly all of the world’s most prestigious dance companies, along with many of the world’s largest venues, recognise the advantages of Harlequin floors; fewer injury risks and improvement of artists’ trust in the floor.”
