Oh!? You can do that with that?

Event Resources is always looking “outside the booth” for inspiration on how to utilize our gear in different and unique ways. Whether it’s pipe and drape, lighting, or other things; here are a few examples of what we can do for you at your next event!

 

POSSIBILITIES of PLASTIC Many materials may be used when designing and building the details of an event. Whether we install soft or hard materials, often times, we use a variety of plastics. From acrylic lecterns to elaborate walls of texture; to customized seating and functional display pieces, we are continually developing innovative, eye catching, yet practical designs.

BIG, BOLD LETTERS – Branding your organization or event can be very important. One way to promote your name or product is by using big, bold letters. These can be used in a variety of ways – gracing an entrance; on stage; or in a pre-function area. Big, bold letters work well when painted and/or used with up-lighting. When coupled with other decor, such as drape, truss, and other set design pieces, your guests will certainly be impressed. Event after event, you can continue to use the letters – whether in the same style as the first time, or by re-painting them, changing the order of the letters to make new words, or however works best for your event.

CONFIDENCE MONITORS & TIMERS – Some seasoned presenters can grace a stage with total confidence without the help of any notes or outlines to help them remember what they are on stage to convey.  Most of us, however, may err on the side of caution, and opt for some “help” in the form of monitors.  There are a few options a presenter may choose from to boost their confidence, resulting in a smooth, focused presentation.

One option is a Confidence Monitor. This is a small screen, placed on the floor of the stage which shows the presentation TO THE PRESENTER. The monitor mirrors what the audience sees, so the presenter can stay on track and refer precisely to what the audience sees.

Another option is a Notes Monitor. This is also a small screen that is placed facing the presenter, on the floor of the stage. The information on the Notes Monitor may be a Powerpoint or simply some bullet points to help the presenter stay on track.

Another option is a Timer Monitor, which is usually used in conjunction with one of the other options. The Timer Monitor is exactly what it sounds like. The screen showcases the amount of time left in a presentation, helping the presenter deliver all of his or her information efficiently.

 

 

LIGHTING ACCENTS – Our team is always looking for ways to make events stand out and be one-of-a-kind, so we created these light boxes so your next event can shine! A whole room can be transformed from “blah” to “bling” with the flip of a switch. Use as few as one light box, or 26 of them! Stack them or line them up. With a little creativity, nothing is impossible!

 

 

STANCHIONS – Most often used to separate a crowd from an entryway, expensive art piece, or otherwise, stanchions aren’t always your typical chrome and red velvet. There are many varieties of stanchions, and we can help determine what will work best for your next event!

TRUSS – Though used mainly for rigging, truss can be used in a variety of ways. Yes, you can suspend lighting, decor and other items from it, but it can be re-purposed as a dramatic entryway, projector stands and so much more!

PIPE and DRAPE As a staple in the Event Industry, pipe and drape is often used as a way to divide space or hide backstage gear from an audience. We like to play with new concepts and see how we can create an impact with our ideas!

EVENT LIGHTING – It’s probably the most effective way to transform the look of any event.  Ask us about the effective ways you can light up your next event!
