Staging Your Event
Give your presenters prominence with a stage or risers. Having speakers or performers above the audience ensures that everyone will be able to see who’s up front. The stage can be anything from a simple rectangle to more involved design with extensions that reach into the audience, providing more opportunities for audience interaction. It’s important to have steps accessible for anyone getting onto or off of the stage so you can have easy transitions between presenters and avoid any embarrassing falls.
Lighting Your Event
The key to good staging is having great lighting. A stage with bad or insufficient lighting will leave your audience in the dark, literally. A well-lit stage will require lighting trusses, high-powered lights with dimming controls, and a spotlight. You want to plan for the entire stage to be lit up, and make sure you can control the lights if you only want a certain portion of the stage to be lit. A spotlight allows you to feature the speaker and follow them across the stage. Depending on the size and production level of your event, you may incorporate colored gels into your lights, providing more dramatic effects on the stage.
Lighting can also be used to create the mood in the room, not just brighten up the stage. When planning your event, consider what you want to room to feel like, how bright you want it, if you want soft colors incorporated. You’d be amazed at what lights can accomplish to turn a boring hotel meeting room into a warm, engaging space.
