Outdoor Stages were pleased to be part of an up-and-coming car show celebrating all things electric motoring at Farnborough Airport. Although our contract stipulates we can't name the trade show in question, we can tell you that it was a great success with hundreds of excellent new, used, and prototype electric cars on show.
As part of the event, we provided a covered stage and car ramps to ensure that all the flagship vehicles could be displayed in the best possible way. The Outdoor Stages team worked hard to ensure everything was perfect for the event, and we're proud to have been part of such a great occasion.
But enough about us, let's tell you a little more about the event and our involvement.
Outdoor Stages Supplies Staging, Sound, and Lighting to Car Trade Show at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre
The exhibition in question was both an indoor and outdoor event, with hundreds of stalls spread out throughout the venue. Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre is a world-famous event venue and has hosted some of the biggest trade shows and conferences in the UK.
For this particular event, Outdoor Stages was tasked with providing staging, sound, and lighting for the main stage area, which was outside, on grass, near the airfield. The stage needed to be covered to protect the equipment from the elements, and it also needed to be big enough to accommodate a full panel of experts for Q&A sessions.
Fortunately, as Hampshire's most experienced outdoor event production company, we have a wealth of experience in working with different venues and types of terrain. We were able to provide a perfect stage solution that ticked all the boxes for our client.
With that in mind, let's walk you through our work on the stage.
Outdoor Stages Supplies and Rigs Covered Stage for Farnborough Airport Electric Car Show
The first step was to construct the stage. Our team of experienced technicians arrived on site and got to work building the frame of our 8m x 6m arc roof stage. We then added the stage deck (1.4m height), making sure it was secure and level. Once that was done, we rigged a relatively modest lighting ensemble from the arc roof (by our standards) full of LED fixtures since ensuring enough light was the primary concern here.
The next step was to dress the stage. We hung black stage drapes from the back and the sides of the stage frame and then added a couple of imposing PA wings on either side of the structure. These each housed enormous banners with logos of the event and headline sponsors.
With the stage set up and the lighting in place, we then moved on to the sound system. As the purpose of the stage was to host presentations, Q&A panels, and interviews with leading industry experts, we needed to make sure the audio was perfect.
We installed a PA system comprising two sets of suspended arrays, stage monitors, and standard speakers. We also supplied and handled the wireless microphones and sound mixing via a digital mixing desk overseen by our expert sound technicians.
Lastly, we supplied and installed several car ramps at strategic locations to allow exhibiting manufacturers to display their flagship electric cars in all their glory. These needed to be carefully positioned so as not to cause any damage to the vehicles or obstruct the audience's view.
The whole process was a great success, and we're proud to have been part of such a fantastic event. We're looking forward to working with the organisers again in the future, and we hope to be able to bring you more news about next year's exciting event soon. Until then, keep an eye on our website and social media for more information about our upcoming events.
