Vital to the success for your event is an appropriate stage. The focal point of your event an elevated stage enables your audience to clearly see your presenters and panellists from their seated or standing position. It is the focal point of the audience where the most important messages are communicated.

Let’s discuss the event. We will take the time to understand the room or space you will be using this includes ceiling heights, natural obstructions such as pillars and walls. We look at lighting and wall coverings. Then we discuss the presenter/s and audience. Who will be on stage what will they be doing; will they have complementary Audio Visual such as projection screens and microphones? How many people will be in the audience will they be seated and how?

All this information helps us determine an appropriate size and height of stage that will work with in the confines of the space and ensure everyone is comfortable and can see.


Every time we hire a stage we ensure safety is our number one concern, each stage must confirm with OHS standards and also meet our strict internal safety levels before it is used. Some considerations include:

  • Safety rails, securing and lighting of stairs and wheelchair ramps
  • The depth of the stage (it should be at least 1m behind furniture, lecterns, and entertainers)
  • The weight of everything on the stage during the event
