Things to Factor in While Selecting a Venue Location

Finding and settling on a venue is one of the most difficult tasks of any event planning routine. The venue has the power to make your event a rampant success or a washout. Its location also greatly matters in deciding the fate of your event. This is the reason why event planners and managers always ask hosts to do thorough homework for picking a venue location before finalizing any other event detail.

Let’s have a look at the elements that one must factor in before locking in a venue location.

The Commute Should Be Shorter

No one wants to drive for an hour to reach a suburban venue. The ones who will make this effort will already be dead beat due to the long commute. So, try to choose the location that remains a moderate commute for all the invitees.

Even an impressive event itinerary can’t persuade people to attend if they already know that they have to travel a long distance to reach the destination. Keep in mind that, a far-off venue location can drastically impact the headcount at your event and subsequently its success.

The Commute Should be Hassle-Free

Just as people don’t want to travel long distances, they also don’t like to get stuck in traffic again and again while heading to an event. Wrestling their way out of bad traffic can spoil their mood even before the start of the event proceedings. It’s never easy to get the annoyed and tempered guests involved in the activities. They even have the contagious power to spread their bad mood vibes.

We know that it is not easy to find a venue that can fulfill both the above requirements. However, we are going to make one suggestion here: try our hangars. There are many hangar venues in Arizona that are not far away from the city centers and also involve a hassle-free commute.

Caterers Can Easily Manage their Things on the Location

While facilitating the guests and putting their convenience at the forefront, it is also important to factor in the functional requirements of your event. For instance, it is essential that the caterers you are working with can easily manage the food and beverages at the given location without making any compromise. A better option is to look for an event management company that offers both a venue and catering services.

 

Take into Account the ‘Curb Appeal’ of a Venue

Besides crafting the interior of the venue in accordance with the event theme, it is equally important that the surrounding location also enhances the experience of the guests attending the event. A natural landscape or some good architectural work of art in the vicinity of the venue will add a personality to your event.

Types of Uplighting for Your Special Event

The Best Types of Uplighting for Your Special Event

One of the most significant aspects while decorating the venue is choosing the lights.

You can find multiple kinds of lights on the market but you will notice that every kind of light generates different mood and feelings.

One of the most popular types of light is the “uplighting”. What is it, you may wonder?  Continue to read to find that out.

What Is Uplighting?

Uplights are a wonderful lightening effect, generally used for weddings, corporate events, concerts, parties, bars etc. They are strategically placed on the floors of the venue, pointing upwards.

Uplights are also set against the walls. In this way, the color coming off from the lights paint the wall in an attractive hue. They are an amazing way to enhance the beauty of the space instantly.

Types of Uplights

There are three kinds of uplighting, each one of them differs in their prices and effects.

It is important that you know the differences between them. Only then, you can decide which one of them would be ideal for your event.

1.     Uplighting with Bulbs and Colored Gels

This the most traditional kind of uplight, consisting of hot bulbs in a metal can. It is generally known as the “old-school” uplight or incandescent light.

The colored gel of the bulb helps to filter out the color of your choice. You can go for single or multicolor bulbs and spruce up the entire place in no time.

The lights also happen to give a beautiful touch of color to your decoration items, making them appear supremely attractive. If you are looking for affordable uplights, you should go with incandescent lights.

2.     Wired LED Uplighting

Unlike traditional uplights, the LED uplights fall into the category of the newer version of uplights. One of the reasons why you should go for LED uplights and not with other kinds of uplights is because these bulbs stay cool for a longer period of time.

Other types of LED lights may get hot after a while but the wired LED uplights stay the same. Since they consume less heat, they consume less power too.

You can change the color of your LED lights even during the middle of your event. For instance, if you want to change the lights with the theme of your event, you can easily do that with the wired LED uplight.

3.     Wireless LED Uplighting

This is the newest and the most exciting version of LED uplights. These uplights work by battery and remote control. This is why you wouldn’t need to worry about wires getting in your or guests’ way.

Although these uplights are costly, they are worth the investment. You can change the color on a fly. For instance, you can have white lights at the start of the event then change them to yellow during dinner time.

organizing lighting for perfectly planned events

Organizing lighting for perfectly planned events

Spotlights, when used at the right time, can be quite the game changers and make you quite famous among your friends, family, and clientele for organizing perfectly planned events.

Let’s have a look at a few of the instances where spotlights are just perfect!

1.     Instances that Need Full Attention of the Audience

Lighting is a very important part of any event whatsoever. Likewise, spotlights have their own importance. While most of the time they are not preferred due to their high beams, they are highly efficient in certain places.

Essentially, if there is an instance in the event that needs the complete attention of all the members of your beloved audience, spotlights are your thing! During a wedding or a birthday celebration, cake cutting is the event that needs everyone’s attention and clarity of vision so they can click clear and glamorous pictures instead of dark and flash filled ones.

It is best to have the spotlight on top of you at such important times.

2.     Events Organized in Large Spaces

If an event has been set up in a very large place with audiences in thousands of numbers, spotlights are a must! For instance, a concert by your favorite music band is a good example. True, you are there to listen to them sing live. But you paid a small fortune to get the tickets. It would be a shame not to have a clear look at the faces of all the members of the band you love the most!

As an event organizer, you should hang these lights right above the stage. This way everyone in the crowd can get a good view of whatever’s happening on the stage.

3.     Events Including Ramps

Many concerts and live singing events are set on stages that are in the center of the studio.  They have ramps leading out in various directions among the audience.

Although the audiences standing near the ramps benefit from this. The faraway people still fail to catch a glimpse of their favorite band members despite the presence of ramps. Spotlights following them on the ramp can be a great solution to this problem.

Although spotlights are not very common, their importance for successful events cannot be undermined. Divinity Lighting & Audio/Visual Productions have a great team of professionals that will expertly hang spotlights over your wedding stage, dance floor or even your performance stage at reasonable rates!
