Seasoned event planners often make the mistake of using a venues in-house AV crew thinking it is good enough to get the job done. They forget that engaging all the senses including what guests see, hear, smell, touch and taste is what makes an event memorable. There is nothing worse than having the best linens, fixtures, furnishings and food only to have your visual displays go dark or a piercing sound flow through the room while your guest speakers are delivering their message. Using the right AV technology and having the right crew on-site, dedicated to your event is crucial. It makes all the difference between delivering a good event, and a remarkable one!
Top 5 Considerations When Choosing Event Technology
Venue – the venue you choose is your canvas. It’s the job of your partner to understand that canvas, how light and sound move through the environment. Every detail matters, from the height of the ceilings, to the finishing’s on the floors, to the sight lines that are created, to how the venue allows your guests to be directly engaged.
Purpose – Understanding the purpose of your event is crucial. Are you looking to educate, motivate, engage, and entertain or all of the above? Choosing the right technology allows you to achieve it all.
Intended Mood – How do you want your guests to feel when they first enter the event, as they participate throughout, and as they exit? What they see and hear is an important element when setting the mood for your event. Intentionally creating the mood will make your live event memorable for all the right reasons.
Experience – How do you want your experience to be defined? Do you want it to been gaging, interactive, and emotional? Having a partner that chooses the right lighting, places visual displays in the right spots, and delivers high quality sound is essential for creating an experience that supports your brand and brings your message to life.
Infrastructure – This is where details matter most. Understanding the capabilities and limitations of your venues electrical, structural, logistical and scheduling framework often makes or breaks your event. Choosing a partner that has the knowledge and experience to handle unforeseen challenges will make all the difference.
“All we have to believe is our senses: the tools we use to perceive the world, our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted.”
