Design and Lighting Success

Here’s what to expect.

We know that it can often feel as if you are in the hot-seat rather than the spotlight. Do you find your team struggling to seamlessly design your event? Not enough time or resources to make your vision a reality? The transition from paper to production is crucial when executing a successful program. Consistency is at the core of relaying your central message to your attendees. We know appearance matters. Free yourself from cognitive frustrations. Our design team in correlation with our production management team will customize and create your stage set and backdrop to maximize branding and fulfill your production needs.

What you need to know.

Uplighting / Room Lighting:
We custom design a lighting layout to fit your theme and decor. These lights provide the warmth and ambience to make your event space stand out. We offer standard and intelligent DMX controlled lights to fit any room. We also have multiple ceiling and wall washes to choose from. Battery operated uplighting allows us to place lights in areas where power is either not available, or would be too costly to provide.

Market Strand Lighting and Lanterns:
Whether you are looking to provide a fun outdoor courtyard feeling, an elegant dinner party, or a festive corporate beach soiree, we can create the right ambience for your event using market lighting, lanterns, chandeliers, and other unique décor elements.

Dance and Enhanced Lighting:
We can create stunning visuals and lighting effects with both standard and computer controlled intelligent lighting fixtures. Vario’s lighting designers will custom design a package that fits the theme of your event, while being mindful of the specific venue and budget. Let us take your event to the next level.

Draping – “To Hide or Enhance, that is the question.”
Draping can add a level of elegance to any space and hide anything you don’t want guests to see. Most draping options are black or gray, but we can accommodate any color, material, and height. In spaces where you want to hide certain areas, use dark draping. If you are looking to create a focal point or make an entire room come to life, draping is recommended and can transform any space. We carry and custom create specialty fabrics and drape vignettes, as well as have fire retardant fabrics with current fire certificates.

Custom Gobos:
Using professional lighting equipment, we can project your company name or logo, any patterns, and just about anything else you want onto any surface. Gobo technology has been a staple for many years, but is still allows for an excellent branding opportunity. Using moving fixtures we can animate your design to add another dimension to the effect.

Pin-Spotting:
Want to make your event’s centerpieces come to life? By pin-spotting each of your tables you can enhance the overall dramatic effect when guests walk through the doors for the first time. Whether ceiling or floor mounted we can accommodate just about any space.

Summary

The right lighting can transform an event from blasé to brilliant. It’s easy for lighting details to get lost in translation, creating a lackluster look and elusive explanations. Ambiance is everything.  From a colorful and strategically-lit outdoor event, to a corporate general session, to a black-tie dinner function, it is imperative to choose the right lighting solution for your program.  What makes our lighting team stand out is our adaptability. We can work in a small, intimate space, or the grandest of ballrooms. No matter the space you have selected for your function, we make it inviting, attractive, and unique. Vario can create a soft ambiance with uplighting, custom event lighting, market strand lighting and lanterns, and event pinspot lighting to bring attention to a centerpiece.
