Live streaming is a powerful way to connect with thought leaders and present your brand which must not be overlooked. More and more event planners are turning to live streaming their events as they want to amplify the reach of their event to maximize ROI.
There are 5 fundamentals of staging a successful event. Audio, Lighting, Vision, Staging, and Content. With all eyes on the stage, it's one of the most important elements you need to get right because unlike AV, you can't just 'tweak' it on the day. The stage is a major element when planning successful corporate events. Everyone will eventually look towards the stage, and your intent is to keep the audience focused on the message you’re delivering. While an involved audience is the goal, we know there are various factors that can make the audience lose interest - causing you to lose out on money, prospective customers, and possible partnerships.
It’s been a very busy quarter for Staging Connections right across the business. From delivering the AFL’s week long Best & Fairest and Grand Final Week celebrations to helping EB Games celebrate 20 years, our teams have work tirelessly to produce innovative event experiences. We've seen the successful launch of our fun new product, SpeakUp, as well as renewed and welcomed new venue partners including Mercure Sydney, Cordis Auckland and Pullman Brisbane King George Square, with more in the pipeline. Here is a snapshot of our latest work for your dose of event inspiration. See how we used projection mapping at a gala in Canberra; constructed an evolving stage set that grew throughout a Sydney conference; and transformed Melbourne's iconic MCG from conference to gala and so much more!
Thinking outside the box comes naturally for Staging Connections and SpeakUp is no exception. Introducing new products that can propel our clients’ next event into an extraordinary experience is part of our DNA. Our innovative team are always on the hunt for the latest technology that pushes the boundaries and delivers a more connected, interactive experience at every corporate event.
As event planners, marketers and brand champions, we understand content is King. But the trick to really engaging your audience is how the content is presented – as they say it’s not what you say but how you say it that counts. When everyone is sticking to the tried and true approach of death by PowerPoint, how does your presentation stand out?
Theming is fundamental to the conceptualisation and delivery of every successful event – your theme sets the tone for the entire experience and drives all subsequent planning decisions. The theme is the first impression people will have of your event. So how do you choose a conference theme that is fresh, appealing and on brand? A meaningful concept behind your event helps to direct your planning, keeps your messaging on track, drives audience engagement and delivers on your business objectives.
Getting people to attend your conference is one, if not the biggest, challenge event planners face. It's the whole reason you're organising the event and attendance numbers are one the biggest factors determining its success. Once you have them there, the real challenge facing planners is to keep your audiences engaged.
THE POWER OF ENGAGING ALL FIVE SENSES
Our experience of the world involves a number of senses - sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. These senses are not isolated from one another. In fact, awareness of our surrounding environment is the result of all five senses working together. Over the years, countless studies have proven sensory stimulation plays a large part in memory formulation and association. For years retailers have embraced these findings and implemented sensory experiences into their marketing in an attempt to boost sales, reinforce branding and improve the overall customer experience. Similarly with event technology, we’re seeing the impact of consumer marketing trends act as the driving force behind the event experience.
Graduation Ceremonies are a highlight of the University year and a proud day in the life of those who are graduating. In 2017 Staging Connections for the first time collaborated with Flinders University to deliver an event befitting the importance of the occasion.
