5 Tips for Taking Your Stage Setting to the Next Level


Further to the blog post about the importance of effective stage design, there are some additional key elements to consider for getting the best out your event’s stage setting.

Here are five tips to make your stage the effective platform for telling your story:

Tip #1

An effective and successful stage provides context for the story and contributes to the ROI through the assimilation of new knowledge.

Tip #2

Make sure your stage is educational and engaging – this will increase the quality of audiences’ learning experience and create a compelling environment.

Tip #3

Having an attractive stage lures the audience while at the same time captivates and retains their attention.

Tip #4

Keep it dramatic and directive – using light and sound can help direct the audience attention to specific areas of the stage, and will evoke emotion thereby creating memories.

Tip #5

Keep it simple – this can be as effective and important as having a complex stage setting. Often provides a clean performance and presentation space.

While focus should be placed on setting up the perfect stage, it is crucial that it does not distract the audiences’ attention from the intended message. It reinforces the communication. It is a platform, storyteller, and messenger.
