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.
