Live Event Production is a professional service for any event — weddings, conferences, corporate meetings, galas, and more. An event production company creates a custom concept – from budget to execution, the event production company and producer takes care of everything.
However, a truly successful event is about more than just the technical setup and a list of to-dos around the event date. The goal of any event should be to create an engaging and immersive experience for vendors, speakers and performers, and attendees.
The right event production company can help you plan in-person, virtual, and hybrid events that will excite your audience and leave them looking forward to your next event.
When looking for an event production provider, it’s essential to know what they do and how they can help you to create an event to remember. Here are five things to know about event production and event producers.
#1. Benefits of Hiring an Event Production Company
Planning and budgeting an event of any size can be overwhelming, especially because of all the details that go into it. An event production company can take care of all the details, from big to small, they do it all.
Your Event Production Company should:
- Construct a strategic plan from beginning to end
- Evaluate event logistics and provide suggestions for improvement
- Provide a comprehensive list of vendors to fit your budget
- Make sure the event matches the client’s needs
- Provide an event producer and day-of coordinator to keep things moving smoothly
- Make recommendations on appropriate venues and technology
- Help you capture and distribute recordings to attendees
- Participate in planning and produce content for the event
- They will navigate the complexities of the various streaming services to avoid problems with virtual or hybrid events
- Help you craft virtual environments for your digital events that ensure your audience gets a fully-tailored experience
- Manage and track event registrations and help secure content so it’s only viewable by registered attendees
- Create rooms for each type of session — breakouts, general, panel discussions, networking lounges, and so much more
This is just a short list of services that we provide our clients at Live Events Media Group — there are so many more options and even more ways that we help you produce extraordinary events.
#2. Experience Design
Event production companies generally use specialized software to create a mock-up design — providing a virtual preview of your event. This allows you to find areas where you may need to change the timing, lighting, and other details you may not have thought about.
They focus on crafting an experience for your audience from the first time they are aware of your event, through to the closing remarks, encores, and beyond.
Every element of the day will be meticulously planned and flawlessly executed to ensure that everyone involved with the event has an amazing experience.
#3. Technical Support
Your event production company is there to create a full experience. This generally involves a lot of moving parts.
When you go with an event production company, they handle the lighting, sound, and production crew. This crew takes away the stress and hassle of creating and maintaining the ambiance you need for your event to go off without a hitch.
Your event production crew will ensure that everything is set up correctly, operating as it should on the day of your event, and they’ll take everything down when you’re done. They’ll ensure that your event’s atmosphere isn’t cluttered or filled with technological drama that can take away from the energy of the event.
#4. Keep Attendees Engaged
A vital element of any event is to keep your attendees and guests engaged and entertained, especially when putting on hybrid and virtual events. Creating an immersive experience is an event production company’s forte.
Your event production team needs to customize your event to fit the audience, theme, and overall experience you want your attendees to have. The right event production company will make sure that they build in plenty of opportunities to build connections between the event hosts, speakers, and attendees.
They utilize technology and psychology to create inspirational and motivational moments throughout your event that build connections and excitement.
#5. Provide Online Events
COVID-19 has forced people to think differently about events. Many people that traditionally held lavish and successful in-person events were now forced to take them online.
While there have been some learning curves for everyone, overall, many attendees are raving about the virtual experience. They’ve been able to attend events they couldn’t before now that the travel element has been eliminated and guests can attend from the comfort of their homes.
Event organizers are also finding that engagement with virtual attendees is much easier and the number of attendees is much larger, which provides a golden opportunity to both connect with your audience and ensure they are enjoying themselves.
Having the technology to live stream an event and still keep your attendees engaged is absolutely more complicated than an in-person event. Things like internet connection, live streaming, meeting software, and sound are a project in and of themselves.
