When you’re responsible for a large corporate event, you have a million things on your list – managing attendees, ordering food and managing vendors to name a few. More than once, we have heard from event managers who realized the day of their event that the stage left a lot to be desired and for the following year, they are determined to change that!
The stage serves as a focal point and plays a vital role in creating the overall ambiance and atmosphere of the event. It can be tricky strike a balance between creating an attractive stage design while ensuring that it does not overshadow the main presenter or speaker.
How to Design a Stage:
Step 1: Setting the Stage (Pun Intended)
The first step in designing a stage is coming up with a theme or an overall feel that embodies your brand. It could be incorporating your brand colors or even a clever play on words that ties in with the purpose of your event. Our speciality is brainstorming unique ideas that will make your stage set the tone for the entire event.
Step 2: Planning the Showstoppers
Now that you have a theme in mind, it’s time to plan the big pieces that will shape the stage. This is also where our vast inventory of rentals comes into play. We don’t settle for just throwing a few barstools on stage. Oh no, we go all out to create a jaw-dropping set that will make both the speakers and the audience feel like they’ve stepped into a new environment. Picture a stylish sofa, a cozy rug, and other elements that make the speakers comfortable and the audience engaged. We believe in creating a scene that everyone needs a photo of.
Step 3: Add alllll the layers!
You’ve got the theme, you’ve planned the staple items, but the stage won’t look complete without adding in additional layers. The secret sauce to taking your stage design from good to Instagram-worthy is adding those layers of detail. It’s the little things that make a big impact. Think about adding a backdrop that complements your theme, or perhaps some lush greens and florals to bring a touch of nature indoors. We’ve seen it all, and we’re not afraid to take your stage design to the next level.
A key tip for designing a stage – it’s all about scale.
Now, let’s take a step back and talk about the importance of considering the scale and size of the items on stage. You don’t want your props overshadowing your speakers or distracting the audience from the main event. It’s like finding that perfect balance between a spotlight and a supporting role. The stage should be an attraction in itself, but never steal the thunder from your key presenter.
