If you are hosting a corporate event, complete with guest speakers, networking opportunities and workshops, you should consider the lighting plan.

When it comes to your corporate event, you need to set the right tone, but you also need your lighting to be practical too. For this reason, you should consider:
- Choosing the right colour lighting
- Choosing intelligent lighting systems
- Highlighting key features
- LED screens
Choosing the right colour lighting
Colour wash lighting for rooms, or for a stage during a presentation, can be a great way to control the atmosphere and energy in a room. Blue and green lighting can be a good choice as these are naturally calm and relaxing colours. You will also need to ensure that there is a good level of light for people who might want to take notes.
Colour lighting also allows you to create different zonal areas within the event space itself and it’s great for helping people find where they need to be. For example, you can asks guests to head to the “Blue Zone” for networking events. This helps to grab the attention of the audience and generate interest and enthusiasm.
Choosing intelligent lighting systems
Intelligent lighting systems can be pre-programmed to change the lighting throughout the event effortlessly, at key points pre-determined by you, without any manual involvement. This can enable the day to flow seamlessly, and help keep your event running on time. For example, changes in lighting colour and state and indicate to your audience that its time to move on to the next part of the itinerary, or that its time to take a seat for a presentation to begin.
Highlighting key features
Whether its banner advertisements or posters, stunning architectural designs, or signs to help people find their way, lighting can be a good tool to draw attention, and help these stand out. Why not try uplighting these with colour lighting, or use GOBO projection to direct light at these in an interesting way?
At a corporate event LED screens can be very effective for stage lighting, while also being used to add visual imagery and video options to support any presentation or speech. But they can also be used to provide itinerary guidelines or important event information, or to show off advertising for event sponsors. LED screens can also be combined together to create larger video walls that can really become a stand out visual feature.
