Stage Design is Critical to the Success of Your Next Event

When it comes to planning your event, stage design should be one of the first things you look at. To set your event apart from others, it’s important to focus on the details and specifics. Event stage design is just one of those details. Whether you’re planning a large scale corporate event for 500+ attendees or a small forum with a more intimate guest count, the stage design of your event is a critical component. There are multiple varying elements within an event’s stage design, and it’s important to make sure you’re using every element’s full potential. You want your stage to come to life — representing your company, your brand, and your message.

With so many options available in today’s market, it’s hard to know what may be the best fit for your event. Read on to find out some of our favorite ways to design a stage, and how we think you can best make an impact at your next event with your complete stage design. 

Stage Setup for Events

Depending on what type of event you’re hosting and what your specific agenda entails, there are different kinds of stage setups for events that you can experiment with. Before settling down with one choice of stage setup, try out a few different renderings and see what will work best. You want the movement of the event to be fluid and for it to make sense. Therefore, you don’t want to put podiums in the back of the stage or have too many chairs clogging your space. If you’re presenting on a screen, you don’t want anything to block it.

Every design element should be intentional, including the initial stage setup. Once you have the groundwork laid out for your stage setup, you can add more fun design elements to it, ultimately creating a cohesive event with unifying décor throughout. All design elements of your stage should work together to elicit your desired atmosphere. Your stage backdrop should enhance your on-stage props. Your podium should create the same atmosphere that your seating creates. It all should have a distinct and cohesive purpose.

Corporate Stage Design

Corporate stage design differs greatly from an event that might have more freedom with their design. With corporate stage designs, you want your décor to enhance what’s already happening on stage, but you don’t want it to distract your audience. Many corporate stage designs center around a corporate focused event backdrop design. For instance, the main focus of your stage design could be on an enlarged company logo that lines the wall behind your stage. Or your corporate event may be a conference, so you’re going to be using a conference stage setup. This is going to allow a greater focus on the tables and seating you may be using directly on your stage. No matter what kind of event you’re hosting, be sure that your stage design is adding to the overall cohesiveness, and not taking away. Often times we find that less really can be more.

Creative Stage Design

When a company does have the freedom to get a little more creative with their stage design, it can be very exciting! There are so many options you can utilize to enhance your venue. Whether you want to spotlight a backdrop for your stage, feature over the top podium décor, or incorporate an interactive stage that creates depth and dimension, the possibilities are endless. If you’re looking to host a more intimate event, a smaller stage can be brought to life with interactive elements for audiences. On the opposite side, with larger audiences, everything can be bigger, to ensure visibility for everyone in attendance of your event. You could bring your company’s product to life by incorporating a life size version of it on your stage, or you could combine floral and non-floral elements to your stage design props to create unique photo moments. Whether your audience is massive or small, incorporating creative stage design is one of the most impactful things you can do for your event.

Stage Furniture and Props

Whether your event is more corporate or more creative, you’re most likely going to be utilizing stage furniture or stage props; use them to your advantage. Event staging can be difficult, but it doesn’t always have to be. Choose furniture and décor that will match your event’s color scheme. If your overall design is more rustic and loose, structured black leather chairs may not be the best way to go. If your event is for a feisty up-and-coming cosmetics company, take a risk with your chairs, seating, and side tables by using bold prints and bright colors. Stage furniture and props should not be an afterthought - they should be looked at as an opportunity. They are just one more element that is going to work to impress your guests. Let them speak for themselves.

Floral Stage Design

Although we love utilizing non-floral pieces in all aspects of design, there is something elegant and classic about traditional floral stage design. You can never go wrong with a floral statement piece on your stage. Flowers are always in style and the vibrant hues and textures that come with them are always sure to mesmerize attendees of any event. If you’re looking to reach outside the box, but still use floral design, go for it! Use unique elements in your stage design, whether that’s in your floral elements or not. Add fruits and vegetables to floral arrangements for an unexpected twist or create a flower wall from exciting floral elements to bring your stage to life. Put unusual items on your stage and fill them with flowers to create a flower bomb that guests can marvel at!
