An evening seminar involving a question and answer session between a panel of distinguished speakers and local businesses.
The City Rooms in the heart of the East Midlands, is an 18th century hotel converted into a conference and events venue. Due to the nature of such an old building, access is limited and a good crew was required to get equipment through the venue’s narrow doors and cramped stairwells.
An 8 x 3m x 600mm high stage allowed ample room for a large top table accommodating 7 guest speakers. The set consisted of 10’ high wooden flats covered in a bespoke colour and the screen was rear projection mounted in a surround.
A lighting bar was positioned on the venue’s internal balcony to light the top table. The set was illuminated with versatile LED batons that allowed the client to choose the exact colour to match their branding requirements.
The top table was fitted with seven vocal microphones and two hand held radio microphones were passed around the audience for the Q&A sessions. The P.A. system consisted of 4 RCF 10” speakers, small sound desk and graphic equaliser. Background music was piped into the room from a laptop source.
A single laptop ran the show’s electronic presentation which was output to the screen via a powerful projector.
Two technicians operated the event and were joined by two local crew for the rig and de-rig. The event was rigged during the day of the show in around 5 hours.
