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.

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.

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.

The Harsh Truth about Audio Visual Providers

The Harsh Truth about Audio Visual Providers

The Harsh Truth about Audio Visual Providers

There are over 200 Audio Visual companies currently listed in E2MA’S* directory. That is a lot of providers to choose from. So let me ask you a simple question: How do YOU choose YOUR provider? Do you go on a Search Engine and see what the top three results are? Do you trust a company who is most likely paying to come up on those top results for your search? Or is your style traditional and you go by the company’s name? A big company name you recognize, it must be safer to choose them, you might think. But why not think about your client before choosing the right Audio Visual provider for your next project? Why not choose a provider that is not only going to get the job done, but also go above and beyond to meet your expectations and go the extra mile with ANY job, no matter how big, no matter how small.

 Truth about audiovisual companies

The truth is that many companies offer the same products at the same prices and it may be a difficult decision to make. At the end of the day, you want to make your client happy and you make them repeat customers. Offering them what every other exhibit house, designer and builder is already offering is not going to cut it anymore. You have to give them MORE. YOU have to be DIFFERENT.

 

So, how can YOU differentiate yourself from your competition?

Why not start by working with a company that focuses on what’s most relevant for your critical clients. From the minute we start working on a project until we start packing our equipment up, we are there with the client, catering to their needs, emphasizing on giving outstanding customer service and technical support. The client’s needs are constantly evolving. So are we. No business can stand out if it blends in. And we stand out by listening to the client before anything else and giving them prompt solutions. We have an experienced team that’s passionate about their work, and it shows. More than anything we are dedicated to our clients. They are the fuel of our company’s passion for this business. So what do you really need to make your next project even more successful?

 

You need GSE Audio Visual.

Plasma – LCD – LED – OLED

Plasma technology - GSEAV
Plasma televisions have incredibly good picture quality with exceedingly deep black levels (superior contrast ratio), great shadow detail, accurate colors, and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics. Unless these TVs specifically have an anti-glare coating, they typically are not good in brightly-lit rooms, therefore we usually do not recommend this type of display for standard convention center halls.

LCD

GSEAV LCD Rentals
LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs have conventional cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlighting. CCFLs are bulky when compared to LED displays therefore you won’t have a “slim” LCD Display. LCD Displays are a great value and, as always, the picture quality of these displays is much better when you use high-definition source material, such as 720p or 1080p content from a Bluray player or computer.

LED
GSEAV LED TV Rentals

LED LCD televisions owe their compact profile and improved contrast ratio to the array of tiny light-emitting diodes that provide the necessary backlighting instead of CCFLs.
LED stands for “light-emitting diode”, LED TVs use an array of LEDs as the backlight for an otherwise traditional LCD (liquid crystal display) TV, shining through a screen of LCD pixels. LED displays are slimmer than LCD displays and therefore have a better overall aesthetic look.

OLED

GSEAV OLED TV Rentals
OLED televisions use “Organic Light-Emitting Diodes” which produce light themselves and don’t need a backlight. This gives you a super-slim TV and also great black levels. OLED TVs are the best looking TVs in terms of picture and aesthetic look.
