How to Create Sustainable Events

How to Create Sustainable Events

Many of the events in this modern age are trying to become more sustainable. These efforts are being made in very diverse ways, depending on the type of event. You, too, can commit to hosting more sustainable events. This post will give ideas on how you can achieve this for the next event you are responsible for planning.

Use digital registration and signage

The focus of sustainability in events management is reducing wastage. One of the things that most often gets wasted at events is the paper that is used to register people and provide them with relevant information for the event. For the most part, these sheets of paper will either be scattered all over or thrown away once the event is done. This waste can be cut down using digital registration and signage. Audio visual rental services are ideal in these situations by providing scheduling and other relevant information to attendees without the need of paper.

Water stations

Sustainability involves the use of available resources in the most economical and efficient way. At most events, you will likely find bottled water. Once people leave these events, the amount of plastic that usually needs to be taken care of is shameful. However, when planning a sustainable event, you can opt for water stations instead. Inform the attendees ahead of time that they should bring a refillable water bottle to the event. Use audio visual rental equipment to show where the water stations are set up.

Carpool to the event

The best way to ingrain a message into people’s brains is by getting them to act on the idea. If you are looking to both host a sustainable event and get people to understand the concept of sustainability as well, encourage them to carpool. Instead of everybody coming to the same event in multiple cars, carpooling offers a more sustainable means of accessing the event. This simple effort will help to reduce carbon emissions, general fuel costs, and highway congestion.

Focus on renting

A significant hurdle you will face as you plan an event is whether to buy or rent the equipment and items needed. The idea of buying, although it may initially look more appealing, is not a sustainable way of hosting an event. Renting is far more sustainable because it encourages a re-use cycle that allows equipment and supplies to be used several times by different people. This process saves money and contributes to sustainability. One of the most commonly reused types of equipment is audio visual rental equipment.

Final thoughts

The idea of hosting a sustainable event should be appealing to most, if not all, people. Sustainability allows you to be socially responsible to the environment and the ecosystem at large. By following the tips that have been provided above, you can make your next event an environmentally friendly one that will help you spread the message on sustainability to friends and colleagues.

AV Budget

How to Get the Most Out of Your AV Budget

Audio Visual technology is an essential factor in numerous industries such as education, business, government, and the medical field. AV is everywhere, whether people realize it or not. Furthermore, as AV technology advances, it’s imperative to invest in AV equipment that you know is worth the value. This is where GseAV can provide you with top-quality AV equipment to fit within your budget.

When it comes to audiovisual solutions, the biggest question is, how do I stay within my budget while still getting quality equipment? When designing your AV system, it’s crucial to have an understanding of what you should spend your money on. Allocating your money correctly will ensure the functionality of your event without you having to exceed your budget. Below are tips on how you can get the most out of your AV budget.

Compare your audiovisual budget with your budget in advance

Implement your budget into your vision within a realistic manner. Then, outline the look and feel of what you want your event to look like with a detailed plan to accurately express your needs. Once you have a perfect vision in mind, create a production list so you can keep track of the equipment you need. Keep in mind if you will need presentations, videos, music, or audience interaction. Once your list is made, look over your budget and production list to decide what equipment you will need.

Creative lighting packages

An event’s aesthetic can have a powerful effect on how the attendees experience your event. One of the best ways to get the best value out of your budget when it comes to lighting is to rent creative lighting packs. Creative lighting packages are an affordable expense even if you’re planning on using custom designs. Your audience seeing your logo on the venue’s wall can provide a lasting impression for your event.

Get the right sound

Pairing the right sound equipment with the size of your venue and acoustics serves as a great technique to stay within your sound budget. Every venue will have unique needs. Therefore, it’s critical to cater your sound equipment to your venue to make sure you’re not overshooting on your budget.

Consult an expert

If you’re unsure about what AV equipment to purchase, then it’s always a good idea to consult with an expert to assist you in your budget. The experts at GseAV are knowledgeable and can help you manage your resources to ensure your event creates a memorable experience for your audience.

With the right planning and creativity, you can orchestrate a beautiful event with audiovisual details that truly stand out. When you take the time to plan and design, you will maximize your investment and the make your event a memorable experience.

Virtual Events

A First-timers Guide to Virtual Events

Hearing the words “virtual events” can scare even the most tech-savvy person. It sounds like an overly complicated endeavor. However, put simply, a virtual event is an event that happens over a network medium with people participating from different physical locations.

Hosting a successful virtual event depends on several factors. It can be quite a daunting task to plan and execute all of these all by yourself. Some of the things you should consider when looking for audio visual rentals include:

A first-timers Guide to Virtual Events

Platform and video options

Platform and video options are what make or break a virtual event. Make sure you get the right platform and the best video for your event. Key areas for consideration include:

Video – The participants should have access to high-quality video of the presentation, as well as, the facilitator. Some people try to cut costs by only showing the audio and the presentation; however, the non-verbal cues from the facilitator are just as important.

Participants Interactions – Even though the participants are not physically there, they need a way to interact with the facilitator. A good platform provides a way for the two sides to communicate throughout the presentation. It can either be chat or two-way audio.

Event registration – A great event allows participants to register. Registration allows for proper planning for both the facilitator and you as the event planner. The registration can integrate with your system through API calls, or you can have an external independent registration system.

Location of the Event

The location of the event can be thought about in two ways. The first touches the facilitator(s). Are they doing the presentation live on stage or at their own offices or homes? The other is the participants. Are the participants gathering in one location or different ones? Having all this information allows your planner to consider all the dynamics of your event.

Internet Connection

A great internet connection determines whether your event will be a memorable one or not. No one wants to pay for an event that continually needs to buffer. Ensure that all the locations have a great internet connection where possible. It is great to have security with firewalls and a backup internet connection as well.

Facilitator

Virtual events are unlike other regular functions. It is more taxing to the presenter. You need to ensure that your presenter is familiar with the platform you’re using and that their presentation is tailored more towards a virtual event. If you are only supplying audio and video feed of the presentation without the presenter’s video capture, ensure that all the content is in the presentation slides or video.

Conclusion

Virtual events are a great way to target a bigger audience without the implications of hosting too many participants in one location. It is more convenient for both the participants as well as the presenters. Planning your first virtual event shouldn’t be too hard with our guide to help you with the nitty-gritty.

Maximum Display Resolution

Maximum Resolution

Maximum Display Resolution

GSE AV now has custom media servers that can push video wall resolutions up to a maximum of (2) 8K (7680×4320) displays or one Ultra-Wide 16K (15360×4320) all from a single media server. Since the highest resolution you can get on a single monitor is currently 4K/UHD (3840×2160), these resolutions can only be achieved by: creating  a video wall, either seamless LCD LED video walls created from displays such as the NEC 464UN-2;  from LED Tiles such as the Absen 3.9mm LED Panel;  or through the use of projection blending.

There is a lot of planning involved with getting a perfect pixel-to-pixel resolution match from your source media to your video wall. GSE Audio Visual specializes in designing, implementing and supplying all the necessary equipment to achieve your maximum resolution goals.

Samsung ME Series Interactive Touchscreen Monitors

32″, 40″, 46″, 55″ and 65″ Samsung ME Series Interactive Touchscreen Monitors now available for rental nationwide.

gseav-samsung-touchscreen

Our new Samsung ME Series interactive touchscreen displays offer superior performance with an elegant design. Available in 32″, 40″, 46″, 55″ and 65″.

Samsung ME Series displays utilize LED lamps around the edge of the panel so the LEDs emit light on the side of the panel. This results in a much thinner screen that requires fewer lamps meaning reduced power consumption and less heat generation. Its slim and light weight design offers heavy weight communication solutions for any business looking to convey concise marketing or educational messages. Low power consumption means lower running costs. The LED technology driving the LFD consumes less energy than conventional CCFL-based LFD.

The Touchscreen Overlay Accessory converts a standard LFD into a touchscreen LFD for a more interactive viewing experience. A special treatment on the front of the panel provides a realistic writing experience that is similar to writing on a conventional whiteboard.

Call GSE Audio Visual at 1-888-573-6847 to learn more about these exciting, new Samsung ME Interactive Touchscreen displays.
