How can an AV company improve your award ceremony?


  • Spectacular Sound

Sound is fundamental to creating an entertaining evening. Specialist AV technicians can visit your venue to help you pick the right AV kit. They’ll know exactly where to position it so that every attendee receives the same quality of sound. The sound technician is imperative on the day, lining up the intro and outro music. It’s a nice touch to have an inspiring song playing when the winner walks to the stage to accept their award. You could also use songs to introduce the speakers and background music while the guests are eating dinner.


  • The Right Lights

The lighting affects the overall atmosphere, as well as capturing the audience’s attention. You may want traditional spotlights to follow the presenters and the journey of the winner from seat to stage. Ambient lighting sets the tone for elegance and helps your guests locate their table. You might want to create a grand entrance, flooding the stage with laser lights, gobos or moving head spotlights. If the venue space is a little bland, uplighters will fill it with colour. Lighting can create tension and excite the audience as they eagerly await the winner reveal. Red Occasions can provide lighting hire in Northampton and the rest of the UK.


  • Vivid Visuals

Projectors or LED walls will ensure your guests don’t miss a minute of the action, showcasing all the footage on a large scale. You can also use them to show sponsor and nominee information.


  • Centre Stage

All eyes will be on it, so you’ll need to consider the overall look and feel of the staging area. An expert AV team can help you design a custom-made stage as well as set it up and take it down on the night. The lectern is integral as this is where the winners will be announced and speeches will be made. Many AV specialists will even brand and personalise them for your event. Red Occasions can provide lectern and staging hire in Northampton and the rest of the UK.


  • A Flawless Floor Plan

An AV team will make sure your seating arrangement is perfect and no one’s view is blocked by a pesky pillar.


  • In Safe Hands

A specialist AV company can ensure health and safety is adhered to. The kit will be thoroughly tested and certified. You can rest assured that there’ll be no trip hazards or unsecured heavy equipment.


  • Interactive Ideas

An expert AV team know how to keep guests entertained throughout and can provide ideas to improve your award show. This could be a quiz or a live voting segment on tablets.


  • A Slick Execution

You may require a live feed in order to cut to the nominees or presenter on the big screen. You’ll need expert AV technicians and a camera crew to pull this off properly.


  • Entertain the Crowd

Once the awards have all been presented, you can keep the buzz of the event going with a dancefloor and DJ or live band. AV experts can provide dancefloors, DJ equipment and instruments.


  • A Faultless Production

There’s nothing worse than the AV equipment breaking down. It can spell disaster for your award show. With expert AV technicians on hand, you can be confident that your event will run smoothly.


  • An Exciting Event

Ultimately an AV company will add energy and pace to the show. With clever lighting and sound tricks, along with all the right AV kit, a specialist audio visual company can create an enjoyable atmosphere that takes your award show to the next level.
