One of the things I like about running a production and event services company is that I have the opportunity to be involved in making a variety of events come to life through sound, lighting, staging and overall production.
Over the years, my team and I have produced a variety of celebrations, concerts and corporate events ranging from intimate affairs to large concerts and everything in between. With over a decade of involvement in every area of event production, I’ve learned a great deal about what works and what doesn’t.
Whether you’re planning your first event or you’re a seasoned pro, pulling all of the details together can be intimidating. Here are my top five tips for producing a flawless event:
Time: One of the most critical elements in producing an event is time. Always allow sufficient time to get all the details in order and execute a plan. Be proactive and avoid waiting until the last minute to make critical decisions which can make or break your event.
Location, Location, Location: Two key elements to planning a fantastic event are selecting the right location and venue. Remember to consider various levels of accessibility from proximity to major highways, traffic flow and parking capacity.
Set the stage: The appropriate stage gives your entertainment just the right backdrop needed to make your production memorable. Mobile stages come in various sizes and transportation methods, be sure to consider the staging requirements of your talent as well as the venue when deciding on a stage for your event.
Amp it up: The best stage, lighting and sound are only as good as your power supply; don’t be left in the dark! Make sure your event site has adequate clean power to support your production.
Set the tone: High quality sound and lighting separate good events from great ones. Consider your venue size and location as well as your entertainment’s needs prior to selecting an AV package for your production.
Considering each of these details will help you ensure that the impression you leave on your guests is a great one.
