Multi-Site Events and The Future of Live Entertainment
In-person and hybrid events can be a key solution in the difficulties that we're facing with human connection and a low sense of morale. One of the most common challenges that event industry professionals have been facing since the pandemic began is figuring out how to host events safely, effectively and efficiently during these uncertain times.
For North Carolinians, the phases of reopening have posed many obstacles for hosting in-person events despite industry professionals' preparedness to enhance event safety measures. For South Carolinians, state restrictions have been more lenient, but safety is still a concern.
For everyone, multi-site events can be a game-changer.
What is a multi-site event? Simply put, a multi-site event is a function that takes place at multiple locations simultaneously and offers a similar experience at each, from the decorations to food and beverage, and, our personal favorite, entertainment.
How are multi-site events a safer option? By offering multiple locations, a multi-site event can allow more guests to participate while practicing social distancing and makes it easier to trace the location of guests by assigning them to a venue.
Where does live music fit? Thanks to technology, there's a bit of flexibility in how multi-site events can utilize live music. Because the goal is for each event site to have a nearly identical experience across the board, the first things to consider are the genre of music and number of musicians. Once the genre and size category are settled, you can choose between having a different, yet similar Key Signature musician perform at each event site, or one Key Signature musician stream to all sites remotely from a professional sound stage with turn-key production offered by one of our sound production partners.
