Event lighting is one of the most important mediums to bring the atmosphere to life. Special concepts of lighting can be used to transform any empty space into an elegant and visually appealing room. It can give depth and ambiance to an event space as well as tie together other conditions of an event, such as slideshow presentations, seating, and sound. Lighting is an essential element for establishing the mood of an event, as well as providing illumination for displays and highlighting decorations. Thanks to advances in lighting technology combined with creative lighting designers, high-end event lighting design is now accessible to everyone. Talented lighting designers are able to make things seemingly disappear. Although many people think of illumination when considering lighting, lights can be used to create shadows and darken a space, thus hiding unattractive features of a venue while at the same time highlighting its best features. From blacklights and lasers that create the exciting strobe of a dance party to subtle uplights that cast a splash of color against a wall, bar, tree, the options are limitless!
