Good for business
Great sound for corporate events needs a corporate mindset combined with rock and roll sensibilities. Because if everything is too corporate it can become bland and soulless. If it’s too rock and roll it’s a nightmare. We have both mentalities. If you’re organising a corporate event, here are some of our top tips for sound:
- Early starts and long days are often a given. Integration with other contractors such as riggers and lighting companies is essential as we are usually flying loudspeakers from their trussing so we mustn’t hinder their schedule.
- Integrate proactively with the producer and your end client. Offer creative suggestions that may improve the smooth running of the show.
- Have on-site facilities to enable editing of music tracks and record voice-overs, and the ability to source walk-on stings and background music. These are important details that are often left to the last minute, if addressed at all, but add significantly to the professional perception of the event.
