Event Lighting Design

AVFX provides event lighting designs for everything from a simple meeting, to an elaborate special event, to an intricate trade show exhibit. We first listen to what you want to accomplish, consider constraints of the venue, and then develop a design and rigging plot that fits your event. Often, simple ground supported lighting with spots and color washes work fine. Other times, more complex truss and rigging with robotic Vari-Lites may be needed to create the mood or enhance the energy of the event.

Our lighting designers work with the client, event producer, creative director and sound designer to create the perfect atmosphere and environment, while maintaining safety, energy efficiency and cost effectiveness.

    Power of Lighting

    We appreciate the POWER of LIGHTING for emphasis, mood or to create an environment. Great lighting design is all about directing attention and creating an emotional response, which should be an integral component of any event design. Light creates the environment and the right lighting package can mean the difference between a mediocre event and a memorable one. At its best, lighting is virtually invisible. At its worst, poor lighting calls attention to itself and nothing on stage ever seems quite right.

    The key to success is planning. AVFX works closely with our clients and their project teams to develop lighting and rigging plots with VectorWorks so that every detail can be determined in advance. Our lighting designers and work with the venue to ensure that power and rigging are in precise order. Our goal is to make lighting, whether simple or complex, perfect for your event.

    For exhibits or special events our lighting designers collaborate with creative directors and designers to offer services that enhance the messaging and mood of the project. Great lighting design can ensure maximum impact and performance.

    Lighting Special Moments

    Our lighting designers are called upon to add their “special sauce” to important events like fundraisers, product launches, weddings and parties. We first listen to what you want to accomplish, consider constraints of the venue, and then develop a design to set the tone and impress your audience.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s a trade show booth, exhibit or corporate lobby, our lighting designers understand the use of light to achieve a practical and aesthetic effect. Distinctive lighting technology can improve creative impact, improve the appearance of an area, or have positive psychological effects on visitors.
