Improve Your Event with Audio-Video Group (Part 2: Lighting)
This three-part series will give you tips on improving your event with the help of Audio-Video Group. Planning an event is stressful enough. Why worry about things that we can worry about for you? In Part 1, we discussed the importance of renting a stage for your event.
Most people think that their venue will supply adequate lighting for their event. This is not always the case. More often than not, the venue space only has overhead lighting with an on/off switch that isn’t adjustable and can’t be dimmed. Or, if you’re having an outdoor event, the venue might not have any access to light or electricity. Cue Audio-Video Group!
Your evening cocktail hour will need different lighting than your corporate brunch, your wedding will need different lighting than your reception, and your charity auction will need different lighting than your jazz concert. Different events require different lighting and your venue might not have all of the options needed to benefit your event.
Just like a stage helps everyone in attendance see your performers better, lighting will also help. Spotlights and backlighting can be a huge addition to your event lighting and can guarantee that your audience knows who they should be paying attention to. Additionally, the ability to dim audience lighting can be a great way to shift attention to your performer and will give audience members cues on when they should be seated and when they should be mingling.
Lighting is a great way to decorate your space. You can change colors depending on your event theme or brand colors, or you can use lighting to project a name or logo on the floor or stage. Lighting can be a dramatic addition to your decorating budget and can make a huge impact.
When renting lighting for your event, there’s a lot to consider. Do you need a spotlight, backlight, or general event space lighting? Does your venue have electricity? Do you know how to set up and run your spotlight? Audio-Video Group does!
Stay tuned for the last installment of our series where we’ll discuss your event sound system!
