What services do Smart Live offer?
Whilst we specialise in end to end project management, we can also support on individual elements of your event - take a look at our services below.
Smart Live are the experts at organising and hosting live events across the UK and Europe, but what does the hosting of these events actually entail? Smart Live can organise every element of any kind of event, from a party to a conference, a team away day to a brand experience. This may seem like a multifaceted process, and that’s because it is! In today’s blog, we will break it down to show you the individual services we take care of when it comes to organising an occasion like this.
Streaming & Virtual Events Expertise
Over the years we have produced live events with a hybrid element, where guests can attend the live event through a streaming platform. However, in the current climate those live or hybrid events are transforming into fully virtual experiences.
We know that engaging your audience in a virtual world is of upmost importance right now. When face to face interaction at live events isn’t possible but engaging your audience remains a priority, we can provide effective online solutions.
Whether it be a Conference or Awards Show, Client Engagement, Team Building or even something to share with your clients just to show them you’re thinking of them, we have a solution that will be memorable for your audience.
One of the biggest jobs we handle for our clients is sourcing the perfect venue for their event, ensuring the venue matches every element of their brief. Our venues range from warehouse spaces to landmark venues, private islands to boutique hotels, palaces to galleries, UK or overseas. Our team proactively source and review new spaces, whilst building strong relationships with each venue, meaning we have access to a wide and varied collection of event spaces. We are very lucky to work in partnership with Smart Venues, who have an extensive portfolio of venues across London, as well as Moving Venue, our caterers who are accredited at over 50 iconic venues throughout London and beyond.
Event Design & Theming
Once we’ve secured a venue, it’s time to bring your event to life. We build breath-taking themed environments and event interiors that realise your vision. We love nothing more than taking a blank canvas venue and fully transforming it, ready to transport your guests to another world, or simply dressing a beautiful venue enhancing its features. Whether we’re designing the venue dressing around your chosen event theme or simply planning beautiful table set-ups, no matter what you have in mind, we can make it happen.
Engaging Content Development
The key to any event is ensuring the messaging is communicated effectively to your audience in an engaging and elegant fashion. Whether communicating with your employees, your clients, or your prospective customers, every event has a message it needs to convey to its guests, and that is best done through the development of engaging and effective content to be used throughout your event. We know that translating your messages can be challenging, and so we can help you to engage with maximum impact through designing, scripting and producing innovative and exciting content to be used across a variety of platforms.
AV Production & Set Build
The use of AV in any event can take your event from something simple to a real showstopper. We always look at the venue first to see what is required, perhaps some simple up lighting to highlight its features, or we can build from the ground up. We have great relationships with a number of design and production companies, who each have unique abilities to use sound, light, video and set to best transform venues and create whole new levels of amazement. No matter what you have in mind for the aesthetics and performance of your event, we can bring that to life.
Delegate Management & Logistics
Whether your event is set to have 100 guests or 1,000, the guest experience is one of the most important elements of any event.Your guests are our priority from the start to the end of the event and for us, the event is the mid-way point in your guest experience.
From pre-event communications such as the invite process, through to onsite management such as guest registration, we are on hand to help. We put ourselves in the shoes of your guests to develop clear pre and post event communications, giving you a seamless delegate journey. Onsite we develop practical access and egress plans, detailed transport and accommodation plans, complex yet simple to follow guest breakouts and movements, and discreet handling of all special requirements. We take on these tasks with proper processes in place, ensuring every single one of your delegates has a fantastic experience during, before and after your event.
