How to Use Lighting as Decoration in Your Corporate Event

You want your corporate event to be memorable in order to impress your guests, and for that to happen the event needs to be engaging. We’ve previously talked about doing this by choosing the right decorations to make it fun and appealing to clients and potential clients. Sometimes people don’t take full advantage of the lighting available, so they’re missing out on a great opportunity.

After all, it’s entirely possible to use lighting as decoration, so that the room you choose to have your event in is both welcoming and aesthetically pleasing at the same time.

The Right Lights

Lighting can make or break your event. It’s important to note that if the lights are too dark, it’s difficult for your guests to see everything around them, which means they might miss important elements of your event and design. And if the lights are too bright, the room can seem stark, which is not the feeling you’re looking for. You want richness and warmth, and well placed lights can help you achieve that.

They help not only with the ambience, but can also highlight other aspects of the room, like decorations and the entertainment you chose. Having the right lighting will, therefore, impact the way your guests see your corporate event.

What Kind of Lights Should You Use?

Lights are a great way to grab people’s attentions, so you should research how you can fit them into your event in a way that makes everything else pop out. Depending on the effect you want to achieve, you have a multitude of ways you can use lighting.

For a more dynamic evening, which can include live bands and comedians, you can go for bold colours, moving lights and even experiment with the placement of the lights themselves, instead of opting just for placing them on tables. For example, you can have uplighters that illuminate alcoves and even place them in a way that make your walls look bathed in waterfalls of light. If, on the contrary, you want to create a calm, relaxed environment, you can opt for soft lights that gently emphasise the features of your event.

If you have a stage or a dance floor, a great way to be original is to decorate it with giant letters to highlight the space and the entertainers!
