Modular Staging – What Do You Need

23rd March 2010

When your business is looking at what they may need for their show or event it is common that modular staging may come up. There are plenty of products and services to consider. Some of these are:

- Seating (Retractable, etc.)
- Multiple forms of staging
- Tiering
- Audio and visual kits for sound and lighting
- Stage Skirting
- Railings

The mobility of the platforms is their biggest drawing point. A business needs to have their events covered and allowing them to have mobility with the stage allows the business to hold the event in locations that otherwise may have been unsuitable. Modular staging can be set up in almost any environment because of this mobility along with the fact that they can be customised to sit on any landscape.

The stage equipment can be adjusted to be a single level or multiple split levels. Depending on what your business needs for their event it is important to have the correct stage set-up. Considering how lightweight, yet durable, the stages are it really offers a business many flexible solutions.

When deciding whether to purchase or rent your platform it is common to have issues with storing the unit and the cost. Depending on what modular staging you decide it seems that the biggest stages measure at 1000mm x 750mm x 1450mm when in storage and get significantly smaller from there.

The cost can vary greatly depending on which company you decide to use and what options are picked. In most cases your business will have to contact the company to discuss options and a quote can be obtained by just answering a few questions. Your requirements can be specified and the company should provide you with plenty of options. Also as with any other choice your business will make you should contact multiple companies and compare the options at hand.

Set-up can be a breeze but also be time consuming and difficult if you are unfamiliar with what you are doing. It will cost significantly more if you pay the company to use their own staff. But this may be a much better option for your modular staging. To insure that the set-up is done correctly and in a timely manner you will need to hire staff that is familiar with doing such activities.

Deciding on whether to rent or purchase can be a difficult decision. By choosing to rent a portable platform will offer the business a quick performance boost and allow them to put a show on quickly without having stage consequences later. However buying a platform can offer your business many possibilities in the future. Deciding that your event will occur more than once is usually the first indicator that you should purchase a platform. Investing in a durable platform is very economical decision. Stages can be broken down and stored relatively easily.

After looking at all of the options you and your company should be able to make a good decision about what type of staging you need and whether you want to buy or rent. Modular staging is a big choice and picking the company that you want to provide it can make or break your big event, so choose carefully!
