5 seating and staging tips for outdoor events

Planning an outdoor event offers plenty of challenges, none less so than finding the right seating and staging solutions.

With more than 30 years of experience in designing and installing structures for high profile events, the team at Austen Lewis know how to make an event successful. Here we offer five essential considerations to make when choosing seating and staging for your next big outdoor project:

1

Choose bespoke solutions

Choose bespoke solutions

Because every outdoor event is different, staging and seating provisions should be tailored to the nature of the event and its audience. So make sure not to compromise when it comes to sourcing event structures, ensuring you find a solution that is designed to meet the unique results you require.

2

Think of your audience

Think of your audience

If an event is to be truly successful it has to provide an exceptional experience for those in attendance. There are plenty of considerations to be made in this regard, but the most important is that your audience enjoys the comfort and visibility provided by bespoke solutions such as tiered seating.

3

Consider set-up and pack-up

Consider set-up and pack-up

If you are holding an outdoor event on rented or public land there may be tight time constraints when it comes to setting up and packing away. Because of this it’s important to choose seating and staging solutions that can be quickly erected and dismantled by industry professionals.

4

Safety first

No matter the scale of your event, safety is always the most important factor to consider. Make sure to hire seating and staging from reputable suppliers who are compliant with all safety standards, have experienced and qualified staff and use certified and tested tools and equipment.

5

Choose experience

Choose experience

When looking for a company to provide staging and seating for your event, don’t be afraid to ask about previous experience. If a supplier has undertaken similar projects in the past and has a great track record when it comes to client satisfaction, their expertise will likely be an asset to your event.
