A guide to event stage design - Portable Staging | Modular Stages | Unistage Ltd

25Nov, 2022

Event stage design is a key component of planning an event, often forming the centre piece of your event. However, event stage design can also seem like an overwhelming process and so, we advise seeking the guidance of an expert team.

To help you make the right steps towards designing your stage, we have included some of our advice below…

Stage configuration and layout options

We recommend starting any stage design process with gaining an understanding of your requirements for the stage. This can be in terms of size, layout and extra features you require. We recommend investing in a high quality stage which is:

  • Lightweight
  • Modular/configurable
  • Sound absorbing
  • Meets safety locking requirements
  • Durable and long-lasting

To design a stage which fulfils your event’s needs, we recommend working with a trained professional team, such as Unistage. We work with event planners and companies to design and manufacture bespoke event stages for all occasions.

Stage manufacturing

Depending on several factors including the timeframe you have available, however we would always recommend working with a company with a robust manufacturing process. When selecting a company to work with, we recommend researching their processes and understanding whether they use outsourced companies to fulfil their manufacturing.

At Unistage we manufacture all our staging components in-house at our Lancashire HQ. We take pride in handling all aspects of event stage design from start to finish. We don’t use any subcontractors or other companies and instead have perfected our design, manufacturing and installation processes.

Working with a company who manufacture their stages in the UK can decrease wait times and ensure a smoother process due to having all members of the team under one roof to complete the project. Quality assurance and safety requirements can also be confirmed at all stages of the process.

Consider décor and lighting

Décor, backdrops and lighting are all key elements to creating an eye-catching stage design for your event. Once you have established the stage design and technical requirements, we recommend speaking with a specialist backdrop, props and lighting company. Although we specialise in stage design, decks and manufacturing, we can also provide guidance on overall look and feel of your staging solution for large events.

Would your stage benefit from being modular?

When designing a stage for an event, we also encourage our clients to consider whether their stage would benefit from being multi-purpose. Our stages are modular and so, can be configured in a range of layouts. Modular staging means the stage can be used for many years to come and can fulfil a range of requirements for your school or company.

At Unistage, we specialise in creating commercial staging solutions for a range of different events and organisations. We have an extensive knowledge in working with event organisers to ensure their staging requirements are met with our bespoke staging.
