It’s amazing what lighting can do for an event. Up-lighting your stage set with color gel scrolls can give you a completely new look with the touch of a button. The three photos shown here are of the same stage set, just different lighting colors. I love how this simple effect changes the entire look.
Color gels are actual pieces of plastic placed over the bright white bulbs to add a hue to the lighting. You can order a color gel “scroll” which typically has 6 colors on a wheel that is controlled from the AV booth.
Changing the set lighting keeps the visual more interesting for your guests in a full day summit or a multi day conference. It’s important to test the colors on the actual set with the AV team before the show begins. You may find certain colors look better than expected while others get the veto. The backdrop canvas in this example is a light blue. Blues and greys are great colors to use as the base.
