Why is stage lighting important?
Stage lighting can manipulate the mood, selective focus, modelling and visibility, making the ambience just right for your event.
What are advantages of a comfort monitor?
When you have comfort monitors, presenters don’t have to turn off the microphone or turn around to look at the screen. The comfort monitor can be used for presentation notes that the audience doesn’t see.
What are stage monitors and why would I need one?

Stage monitors are performer facing monitors used for amplifying the performer’s sounds.

What are the differences between a wired microphone and a microphone?

Normal wired microphones are often slow and cumbersome to pass around. In addition, they can quickly kill the flow of discussion.

Why should clients make time for soundcheck/rehearsal with the people who will be speaking on stage?

Soundcheck is as important as your actual performance because firstly it ensures that all microphones and inputs are connected and working correctly.

Secondly, to set the levels and tonal balance of instruments and voices, both individually and in combination, so that the performance can begin without further adjustment.

If you do your sound check well, you can be confident that you are going to have a great performance.

What is the importance of having background music versus no music for events?
Background music is important for setting up a mood for your event. Depending upon your event type, music can alter the ambience of your event.
