When you’re hosting an outdoor event, you want to provide the best experience for your guests as possible. Whether you’re organizing a networking gala or showing a movie in the park, thanks to smart technology, you can host an amazing event without having to hire expensive event planners or even a DJ. You can do much of what you need to do all by yourself. With the right audio-video setup and equipment, your outdoor event will go off without a hitch. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

Get the Right Gear

First things first, you definitely need to know exactly what type of theme you are going for as well as the key elements you would like your event to have. Things such as music or specific types of lighting will have certain requirements in order to operate properly outdoors. If you plan to play music, you will need to have appropriate speakers as well as the wiring that can support an outdoor setup. You could also use wireless speakers. If you don’t have all the right equipment, some of it can be rented.

Temporary Wi-Fi

Nowadays, if you don’t post about being at an event online, then its as if you were never there. Affording your guests the ability to get on their social media during your event without having to use their cellular data can mean lots of promotion for you. Your guests can go live as much as they like because they have free access to the internet. You could also use the Wi-Fi to stream music or movies.

Smart Lighting

With smart lighting, you can have an event that starts in the day and continues through to the evening virtually seamlessly. These lights can turn on as the sun sets, can be set on a timer and, best of all, can be programmed to various color hues. By using smart lighting, you can have functionality and design all in one and create a total vibe at your event that will have guests posting about it all over social media.

Before you think of hiring an event planner for your outdoor event, do a little research and let smart technology do the work for you.
