What makes TEDx events so special?
Several conferences and office presentations are organized at fancy venues, with the presence of engaging and charismatic guest speakers flown in from out of town, and the full attendance of a well-behaved audience.
So why do some gain more attention than others?
You’d be surprised to know that corporate seminars and events are quite similar to a theatrical performance—complete with lights, camera, sound-check, stage and rehearsal. (Yes, it takes hours of preparation to sound effortlessly humorous)!
In most cases, the success of a seminar depends upon its organizer’s attention to detail when it comes to literally setting the stage.
Making a PowerPoint presentation, arranging for catering or sending invitations is just a tip of the iceberg in corporate event planning. The secret of a successful corporate event lies in creating a dynamic environment that works seamlessly to support the speaker and facilitate clear interaction between the speaker and his or her audience.
This is precisely why influential brand names invest heavily in setting the stage for their corporate event—even if their list of famous guest speakers alone can promise a full house.
Who is a Presentation Partner
An event partner or a presentation partner is an expert at handling large conferences and huge seminars. Some of them even offer to take care of the entire setup for you, so all you have to worry about is your content.
There are so many reasons why you should opt for a good presentation partner while planning to arrange a big event. A few of them are:
Lights, Camera, Action!
So, what exactly do we mean by “setting the stage”? It’s a corporate event, after all—not a Broadway musical.
Just clean up the stage, install a corporate backdrop, fix a microphone on the podium and you’re good to go, right?
Yours is presumably a small company, and you certainly don’t have the budget to pull out all the stops and compete with TEDx or businesses with the budget of a small country’s economy.
We’ve spent a considerable amount of time helping businesses, big and small, organize their special events; and here’s what we think. Just as a powerful theatrical performance isn’t determined by the fame or net worth of an actor, the success of your keynote speaker’s speech isn’t determined by how much you pay him or her.
Ultimately, it all comes down to quality. And if your corporate event is led by a team of creative and driven individuals with inspirational ideas on how to improve business, the least you can do is aid their presentation by making their presence more prominent to your audience.
How do you do that?
Equip them with the tools to assist with their delivery.
Inspiring Ideas, One Presentation at a Time
Let’s face facts here.
You could have the face of a hugely successful entrepreneurial icon speak at your corporate event—someone as experienced as Richard Branson or as young as Mark Zuckerburg. But without a reliable audio visual system to support their presentation, you might as well have your disgruntled neighbor deliver a rant on politics since no one would be able to see nor hear him.
Corporate events are a big deal. We know and we understand.
It’s an opportunity for you to reach out to prospective clients and motivate existing employees. This is why we provide a service that allows small companies a chance to compete with the big leaguers.

Attending the Conference:No matter what your event is, you want your delegates to enjoy to their fullest, isn’t it? It is also common knowledge that we enjoy when we remain engaged and participate in more interesting actions than sitting idle. Event managers arrange DJs, game shows, and standup comedies for the same. But you can skip these old school ideas to increase audience engagement in an event provided you implement some unique strategies such as:
Offering attendees Freebies:
No doubt, everyone loves freebies and offering your delegates a free goodie could be the best way to start the conference. You can simply offer a writing pad or pen having your brand name written over it. It will serve two purposes; first, your brand name will always be in the memory of the delegates whenever they will be using your goodies later and second, you will get indirect promotion while others will watch your delegates using your goodies outside the event.
Staging a live Poll:
Your delegates perfectly remember the time they interact with you or your speakers on one-to-one basis. You may doubt whether it is possible to give each individual that sort of time. Well, a quick fix to that could be staging a live poll. Make your speakers ask for live opinions or electronic votes where your delegates’ opinion will matter. It will keep them hooked to the discussion until the end and they will love to be the part of your future events as well.
Make them part of the show:
There are two types of participation in a show- active participation and passive participation. The latter refers to a stage of just sitting idle and listening to the ongoing conversation while the former implies a moment where the delegate actually feels to be on the stage. It happens when you pose a question and randomly choose one of your delegates to answer it. For this, all you have to do is to have impeccable audio systems and couple of hands-free microphone to be tossed from one audience member to another.
Stream them live on Internet:
Won’t you feel excited to be aired live on internet? Of course, everyone will, then why not to utilize this trump card to get your delegates’ attention! Record your show live from different angles through quality standby and drone cameras. Then stream them live on your official YouTube channel, Facebook Pages and other social media platforms having wider audience reach. Your delegates will be more excited to leave comments, hit likes and share the posts to make others know about their presence in your event or conference. Within few minutes, your event will start to get organic promotions.
Implement all the above-listed ideas into action with a reliable event management partner- Toronto Audio Visual Rentals and leave a lasting impression in the mind of every delegate attending the conference with ease.
