BlogDan KallenNovember 17, 2015January 27, 2022Planning your upcoming holiday gathering can, at times, be stressful and time consuming. However, with the implementation of the technology options listed below you can assure that everyone at the party will get into the festive mood and stay there! Holiday Party Checklist Items Sound Systems Whether you need a single microphone for announcements or a full blown sound system rental for entertainment, make sure everyone can hear everything at the event. An experienced AV technician will recommend the right sound system for the space your group will occupy. Projector If you want to develop a PowerPoint presentation of the year in review that will encompass photos, videos and text, you need the right LCD Projector rental. This presentation can be a starting point for the party and work hand-in-hand with any company announcements and celebrations the CEO wishes to make for the upcoming year. Lighting There’s no doubt about it – lighting sets the mood for any party or event. From colored outdoor lighting to LED stage options, work with your AV provider on creative ideas to “light up the room”. Hotspots Whether you are having your party at work or at a fancy venue, make sure there is enough bandwidth for your guests to constantly be connected. Remember, if you are including your employees’ significant others and children, there can be up to three times the expected Internet traffic from your party alone. Look into Wi-Fi hotspot rentals that allow your guests to connect their mobile devices to a fast 4G LTE connection, all without using their own cell data plan. Instagram and iPads This is where your party committee’s creativity can come in. Whether it is a specific spot at the venue where the iPad rental is available or you run around the party with a large photo frame and ask people to pose within it, assign a photographer and use Instagram to take the party photos. Track the photos and share them on a real-time basis on a large monitor rental for attendees to view in a rotating sequence. Charging Stations If you want to keep guests at your party longer, be sure to include USB charging stations on your checklist. Nothing will cause your employees to go home faster than a dying smartphone or mobile device.
