Try to select a date and time that works for as much of your team as possible.
If spouses are attending, try to start the event late enough to give everyone enough time to get ready and arrive. Don’t make the event start so late that the awards last into the wee hours… especially if you are having the event on a weekday.
Select a location that is special and shows that you are honoring the award recipients.
This doesn’t mean breaking the bank on the venue alone. It does mean you don’t want to hold the event at the local fast food restaurant.
Pick a theme that your group will enjoy, whether it is black tie, beach time or space cowboy, come up with a theme that speaks to your team.
Floor plan and seating:
Make sure there is plenty of room for recipients to make their way to the stage to accept their awards.
Timing of Meal/Ceremonies:
If your event includes a meal, plan the timing so that the food is not being served while the awards are being announced.
Pick the music for before, during and after the event to match the theme and to contribute to the event rather than detract from it.
Decide if you will have one MC giving out awards or several. There are many ways you can do this. None of them are wrong. Decide what is best for your group.
Plan what lighting to use throughout the event and what lighting to use when the awards start. A couple of extra spots can add a subtle sense of importance to the awards portion of the ceremony.
Banner and red carpet location:
Of course you want to have a great step and repeat backdrop from Step and Repeat LA. The step and repeat backdrop with your company or group logo and slogan is a great way to add the feeling of importance that your awards ceremony deserves.
Plan who will take the photos and/or videos of the event. Have them capture recipients in front of the step and repeat backdrop to create memorable images for your next newsletter.
After the official ceremonies, let everyone come up for their photo-op in front of the banner so they can all have a memento of the event.
We have a new product that we offer. We’re pretty excited about it!
If you are in the event planning business, you know that step and repeats are a must-have for any red carpet event. For larger, red carpet events like the Oscars and other large award shows, step and repeat rigid media walls (made out of gatorboard) are always used. These are fantastic, but they have one little flaw – there are always vertical seams every 4 feet (the panels only come in 4-foot-wide size).
Any printing company knows that step and repeat rigid walls have seams in them.
Step and Repeat LA’s production crew has come up with a solution.
We now offer SEAMLESS step and repeat media walls. They are absolutely beautiful. Your attention does not go to splits in the wall or large seams. It is one, beautiful wall of logos.
Event planners will love our new, seamless walls.
Each and every one of your guests can be on the cover of a “famous” magazine!
This is a great way for your guests to be able to take home a fun reminder of your event. Our designers can help you create the perfect backdrop. Your magazine cover can feature your products or services or be just for fun!
Whether you are preparing for a corporate party, event or tradeshow, a custom magazine cover backdrop will be a sure hit.
With a step and repeat backdrop or custom banner, EVERYBODY is a celebrity!
So easy… and so much fun!
