There are some brilliant new ideas stealing the show at events around the world – make sure you’re keeping up at the back by introducing the latest tech to your next event. We guarantee the following ideas will knock the socks of your guests, whatever the occasion.

 

1. Immersive presentations

 We know that presentations are a necessary evil to most corporate events – just make sure yours isn’t flat and boring. Keep your guests awake and interested with immersive presentations, that make the most of live video mapping and drone and camera tech. Create an experience with 360-degree screens that completely envelops the audience. It’ll be so mesmerising that guests won’t be able to do anything other than pay attention. A cunning plan indeed ????.

2. LED drones

 We know, we know, drones have been around for years. But using them at events is a pretty novel idea. Think a bit differently for your next event and create some insane effects with LED drones. By attaching LED lights to drones (ask an expert, please!), you can create some visually stunning light displays that fly over your guests’ heads and enhance whatever is happening on the ground. Fully controllable and changeable throughout the event, your guests will think you’re super tech savvy. Just be careful who ends up with the controls…

 3. Experiential Installations

 Looking for dramatic effect? Use the latest developments in sound and light tech to design an experiential space that will have jaws dropping on entry. Take inspiration from your theme or design a world that well and truly sums up what your event is about. Make use of all your guests’ senses to design something they can’t quite get their heads around.

 

Not only are these screens capable of producing some incredible visual effects, they’re lightweight, more environmentally friendly and, most importantly, you’ll feel like you’re in a scene of Avatar.

4. Skeletal mapping

 There are some techy tricks that will always have guests eating out of the palm of your hand, like skeletal mapping. This brand new, and totally mad, technology uses 3D cameras to capture every movement a person makes. This data can then control what happens on a screen (through magic, we presume), making it appear as though they’re controlling the content using nothing but the movement of their body. Geddit? It works brilliantly at large-scale events, where production is at the top of the priority list.

 5. Transparent screens

The new must-have for conferences, award ceremonies and festivals alike. These screens come in different transparencies, and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Once you see one in action, you’ll totally get why everyone’s raving about them. Not only are these screens capable of producing some incredible visual effects, they’re lightweight, more environmentally friendly and, most importantly, you’ll feel like you’re in a scene of Avatar.

Keep an eye on the latest event tech developments and you’ll find plenty of inspiration for your next event. With new lighting ideas, incredible interactive technology and tricks to take your experiential installation to the next level, the future is most certainly bright.
