Planning your event: Using CAD

A picture is worth a thousand words, and nothing could be truer when planning your event with your event management company. With so many stakeholders involved with any given corporate event, it is essential to ensure everyone is on the same page and the best way to do this is to create visualisations of some form.

There are various methods to do this and often a combination is the best way to clearly illustrate what your plan and intensions are. From stock standard venue 2D floor plans, right thought to a 3D animated fly through, each serves a purpose and has its place in the production process. Everyone involved in the event planning process has their own priorities when it come to visuals, venues like to see how many tables/chairs they can fit in – 2D works well for this. Our end clients want to see options on a variety of themes – traditional sketched illustrations and a 3D drawing are an ideal way to provide this solution, while event producers & conference management teams need to know precisely what the keynote or exhibition will look like and how it will be laid out – 2D plans and full 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) illustrations are key to ensuring this portion of the event will meet everyone’s expectations.

The benefits of engaging a CAD designer to draw up elements of your event are huge and will often save your money in the long run. We can illustrate the impact to our stakeholders, of exactly how an opening video will look from any seat in the room, ensuring that their investment in a custom shot opening video by your corporate video production team pays dividends. Through the benefits of using CAD, we can look at sight lines in the room which will help determine set design elements and screen sizes, as well as helping ensure everyone in your corporate events team recognises the reasoning behind certain decisions on production elements for your event.

Conference management is wide and varied, with so many ideas on any one project in circulation at any one time. Take this notion and include many individual interpretations of a single thought and it can often be tricky trying to get all people involved on the same page. The solution can be as simple as a picture.
