Event Lighting Design and Rental for Weddings, Parties, Festivals, Concerts, Live Theater, Corporate Events

Weddings, parties, festivals, concerts, live theater, corporate events and even  product launch events are transformed with light. Light washes, lasers, festive hanging lights, chandeliers and spot lights will pave the way to turning your dreams into reality.

  • Our lighting designers work closely with clients and project teams to create the event lighting design that you need.
  • Audio and visual design can make or break an event's success.

When planning an event, it's important to consider what audio and visual elements are needed to enhance the overall atmosphere. However, it's also important to factor in the cost - after all, budgets need to be adhered to. The average cost for audio and visual design for events can vary greatly depending upon the items that you choose.

From sound systems to lighting setups, each component can have a significant impact on the final cost. Working with a professional audio and visual design team can help navigate the options and ensure that the chosen elements fit within your budget without sacrificing quality. Ultimately, it's important to remember that the price point for audio and visual design should not overshadow the importance of creating a memorable and engaging experience for your event attendees.
