Smaller ballrooms, especially ones in boutique hotels, always present challenges when we are designing creative staging plans. Low ceiling heights, minimal rigging or small room sizes are common in these properties. We are always looking to find creative uses for existing technology to combat these challenges. Recently we found that LED wall technology has been a huge asset to us on a couple of recent shows that had small rooms.
LED to the Rescue
Instead of building an entire wall behind the stage, we created a series of LED panels that acted as a backdrop instead. Standing roughly 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide, the panels were ground supported and offered a visually interesting background. We created a number of different graphic looks for the panels, which allowed us to change the look and feel of each presentation.
The content for the panels was created using existing artwork from the client that was put together into a creative and engaging set. The great thing about these panels is the versatility we were able to achieve for each presenter. The graphics on the panels were changed to support each presenter’s unique message. Most importantly, they fit well into a very small ballroom!
