Discover all-in-one event production with DUANE design

What is DUANE Event Design?

With every event design discipline under one roof, DUANE offers the most integrated production resources for the best price — delivering the energy and execution you need to grab attention.

Designing your event solution starts with a DUANE Project Manager — your key point of contact throughout the planning and execution. The sooner in the process, the better. Many clients bring in DUANE six months to a year in advance — recognizing significant advantages in treating event pre-planning not as an expense but rather as an investment.

A comprehensive review of your needs establishes the criteria for your event and helps our team identify potential problems and extraordinary opportunities. Key questions include:

Your vision of a perfect event?

The look that you hope to create?

What are you trying to achieve with your event?

What is your definition of success?

How engaged do you want your audience to be?

What kind of energy are we trying to generate?

Designing The Perfect Event

A perfect event is one that is flawlessly executed and leaves guests with lasting memories. Every detail, from the invitations to the food to the entertainment, must be carefully planned and executed. The venue must be just right, providing the perfect setting for the event. And the guest list should be carefully curated, ensuring that all of the guests will enjoy themselves and each other’s company. 

Most importantly, a perfect event should be a reflection of the hosts’ taste and style. By infusing their personality into every aspect of the event, they can create an unforgettable experience for their guests.

“We solve puzzles and create solutions with a ‘brain first mentality.'”

How DUANE Design Works

The answers to these questions will direct the event energy — the audio, video, lighting, and staging — that DUANE creates specifically to grab attention. As part of this process, DUANE’s design team works closely with you, with steps that include:

  • A site tour: convention space, venues, outdoor fields, and corporate offices — to work through lighting and video angles and cues.
  • Drawings, models, and mock-ups to establish “the look.”
  • Content creation, such as customized introduction graphics or voiceovers and hotkeys to display or play.
  • Pre-build in the DUANE shop, to spec, to ensure everything fits where it’s supposed to.

Extensive planning on the front end helps establish a quick setup for where you need to direct the focus: on the event itself. (Not to mention a quick breakdown and exit when all is done.)

In addition to the primary needs of your event, your DUANE team can also help develop revenue generating opportunities, such as branded display space for advertisers.
