Outdoor Stages Provides Staging, Sound, and Lighting to Exhibition at St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton

Outdoor Stages recently provided stage hire services to an exhibition event held at the prestigious St. Mary's Stadium, the South East's largest football stadium. The event was a great success, with over 2,000 people in attendance over two days.

We were tasked with providing something that is becoming more and more unusual for us (though still part of our core services); a stage for an indoor event! Of course, indoor staging is still very much within our wheelhouse, and we were more than happy to oblige.

So, let's tell you more about the exhibition and the work we undertook to make it a success.

Outdoor Stages Helps Support Exhibition Event at Southampton Football Stadium

The event in question was an exhibition for businesses, with a particular focus on start-ups and SMEs. The event was designed to bring together businesses from across the South of England with a view to networking and developing new relationships.

With over 2,000 people in attendance, the event was a great success. We were tasked with supplying and installing the main stage, which housed a couple of presentations and a Q&A panel on each day of the event.

Luckily, we had plenty of room to work with since we were in the Kingsland Suite, positioned on the ground floor of the stadium. The space, which can accommodate 100 exhibition stands, benefits from high ceilings underneath one of the stands, letting us create a visually impactful stage setup.

So, let's go into a little more detail regarding the work we carried out for this event.

Outdoor Stages Provides Staging, Sound, and Lighting Equipment for an Exhibition Event

As we mentioned, our job was to provide the focal point for the event; the main stage. This meant that we had to provide a stage that was large enough to accommodate the presenters and panelists while also being visible to the significant number of attendees.

We achieved this by constructing a stage that fit the bill perfectly, our 6m x 4m arc roof structure. It was the perfect blend of size and functionality, giving the presenters plenty of room while ensuring that everyone in the audience could see.

In addition to the stage, we supplied a comprehensive PA system with wireless microphones, speakers, and a digital mixer. We also supplied LED PAR lights to wash the stage in different colors, adding an extra layer of interest to the proceedings. Lastly, we supplied the stage furniture, which included chairs, desks, and lecterns.

Overall, the stage and audio visual setup we provided helped create a professional and engaging environment, which was perfect for the exhibition. The event went off without a hitch, and we were thrilled to be a part of it.
