A stage is a simple construct that commands authority and solicits attention from audiences. The mere sight of a stage sparks curiosity, thus preparing an audience to be captivated. Captivating an audience is a major hurdle to getting people to listen, participate, and enjoy any event. Aside from aesthetics, a raised platform provides audiences a proper line of sight to appreciate the entire event.
Organizations of any size can utilize a stage to improve events. Small organizations including churches, sports teams, businesses, government organizations, schools, and more can reap the benefits of stages by investing in a portable stage. Ensure your event demands attention and respect by investing in a portable stage.
Portable stages are available for all types of special and routine events. Different types of portable stages include mobile stages, traditional stages, and modular stages.
Mobile stages are ideal for outdoor events. These stages are designed to be towed by a large vehicle to the desired site. Once the mobile stage reaches the site, it is unhooked from the vehicle and setup in a matter of minutes by an experienced operator. When the stage is no longer needed, it is folded up and towed away.
Standard stages (non-modular) range in sizes and height. Standard stages do not allow the freedom of customizing the stage design. Standard stages are ideal for organizations that hold reoccurring events, which a single size stage will suffice.
Modular stages are ideal for most small organizations. Modular stages, by design, can be mixed and matched to create a customized stage for each of the organization’s events. Platforms and metal girders are designed to allow the height, size, and dimension of a modular stage to be modified as needed. As the size of the organization grows, so can the portable stage with the addition of modular platforms and risers.
A common deterrent to small organizations purchasing a stage is the initial cost and available space for storage of the stage when not in use.
The fiscal situation of every organization is different. If your organization is in the habit of renting stages for special events, the long-term cost of repeatedly paying a rental stage fee will quickly exceed the cost of the outright purchase of a portable stage. The cost-to-benefit of owning a portable stage will have to be determined individually. The prestige and splendor of portable stages can cost a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.
The problem of storing a portable stage has been solved by mobile stages and modular stages. Mobile stages can be stored outside in a parking lot or anywhere a truck can tow it. Modular stages are available that boast the ability to be broken down and stored into a space no more than 4’ X 4’ space. Not only can a large portable stage be stored in a very small space, but setting up the portable stage can be completed by a single person due to the modular design of the platforms and risers.
The advantages of stages have been utilized by performers for ages. Large stages set before massive crowds to a simple soap box have been used to enhance many performances or speeches. Now, portable stages are readily available, affordable, and sensible for small organizations of all types. Exhibit your organization’s commitment to members and audiences with a masterful portable stage.
