As we’ve discussed in earlier blogs, planning an event of any size can cause stress, headaches, and frustration. There are so many moving parts and people to manage that even the best event management companies in the industry can fall victim to the pitfalls possible when planning an event. But despite how bleak that sounds, any event planner will tell you that the best way to combat these negatives is by being well educated and well prepared.
Any time you go to a concert, a movie premiere, a business conference, or even a graduation ceremony there is a vast array of audio equipment all working in unison to provide the auditory experience for the event. Larger events will have a team of people making sure everything is running properly. Smaller events might have one or two sound technicians handling the audio gear.
The world of audio and visual is an ever-changing field. Advancements in technology bring on new capabilities while also rendering older processes obsolete. These advancements can happen fast which makes it difficult to keep up with current trends, especially for those who aren’t immersed into the A/V field as a career.
When people go to an event like a concert or a convention, they expect fun and engaging performances that will keep them entertained while they’re there. Alternatively, if a public speaker shows up at a school, you must ensure that the audience can hear them loud and clear and that their voice has authority over the room. In both situations, you must pick the right production gear at your shows to ensure that things go smoothly.
