Stages are simple but vital things. They give a speaker or performer the platform from which to best relay his message to the assembled audience as well as providing a focal point for your event venue.
Rental stages can generally be fitted into any room, venue or outdoor environment and provide the platform for you to make the most of your performance.
A hire stage can transform the perception of the performers to the assembled audience and present the show at its very best. Rental staging can be fitted into outdoor environments with all weather cover if required allowing your event to go ahead despite unreliable weather.
Hire staging is available in numerous shapes, sizes and heights and can be configured to fit virtually any venue. Hire staging is generally modular in nature and so non-regular shaped stages can be installed. Hire staging can also be finished with casements and carpeting to fit in with the themes and decoration at the event venue. For stages over a certain height, stair units are recommended to allow easy and safe access. Ramps allowing wheelchair access can also be fitted.
When deciding on the best staging to hire for your event, it is worthwhile being aware of the following information to assist your audio visual hire professional in recommending the most appropriate staging equipment:
Size – Consider the size of the stage in relation to the dimensions of the event room and its required use. The stage should not be overbearing to the assembled audience but should provide sufficient space for the performers using it.
Position – Consider the location in which you intend to position the stage. Will it block any fire exits or thoroughfares and will it allow easy access for those that are required to use it during the event? Does it block any power points that may be required for use?
Access onto the stage - Hire stages can be supplied with stair units or disabled ramps if required. Make considerations of the height of the stage and as such the potential angle of the access ramp and that this will take up more space than perhaps you first considered.
Access to the event room – Modular staging although transportable is still heavy and awkward to move. Ensure that your event room has sufficient access to allow the installation team the most comfortable and efficient load-in possible.
Finish – Do you require a carpeted finsh or a valance? There will be an additional charge for this service so ensure you account for this in your budget. The majority of staging hire suppliers will also stock lecterns and other stage furniture.
