Be it a family get-together, a wedding or a corporate event; all of them need a stage. There are lot of decisions to be made before finalizing the right portable stage for the event. You simply can’t go blind-folded while choosing portable stages.Here is a set of questions that one need to follow to hire a perfect stage for the event.
1. What is the Theme of the Event?
Every event has its own spirit that sets a particular ambience for the occasion. If you want to accentuate the pleasure of the function, then you should decide a theme for the event. With a theme, it becomes easy for you to choose the right kind of party set-ups which will leave everyone awestruck. If the event needs a stage, then you should go for a portable stage that blends with the theme of the party naturally. As portable stages are available in a variety of colours and size, it will not be a problem to find the right one for your party.
2. How Much Floor and Roof Space Do I need?
Physical size of the stage matters the most. Usually, we utilize the floor space of the portable stageto organize a presentation/performance there. You should first decide how much space you do need to organize the act on stage. Then you have to choose the floor size of the stage. Floor size of the portable stages can be customized easily as they come in small, detachable units which are interlinked with each other. We advise to choose a floor size which is a little bigger than the actual floor space you need.
3. Do I Need to Set Lights, Microphones and Sound Systems on the Stage and the Roof?
If the event involves an act, a music concert, a presentation or a children’s play; then surely you need a range of audio-visual accessories to be attached to the stage, particularly at the roof. Depending on your set-up requirement, choose a stage arrangement which can fit all the additional accessories comfortably. Lights and sound systems can be pretty heavy. So, check the strength of the stage before flying them.
4. What will be the Elevation of the Stage from the Ground?
Elevation of the portable stages should be decided carefully as it makes things on the stage visible to everyone. A wrong elevation can deprive the guests from enjoying the act which is being performed on the stage. If the event is being organized in a large area, then you should increase the height of the stage so that everyone can see the stage from any point of the area. If the event involves a small ground, then choose a moderately elevated stage.
5. What is the Transportation Cost?
It is not just the hiring cost of the stage but you should also add the transportation cost to get a wholesome idea of the total cost for a portable stage. You should ask the rental service about who will be responsible to make transportation arrangement – you or the rental firm. Try not to take the burden of transporting the stage by your own.
