How to Create Better Custom-Tiered Seating Solutions for Your Events
Whenever you stage an event, creating a positive experience for the audience is the essential element that will determine your success. Whether your audience is seated in a plush theatre or on the sidelines of a sports field, being comfortable and having a clear view are key factors that will enhance their enjoyment of the event.
No matter the size or type of venue where your event is to take place, a custom-tiered seating solution that is perfectly tailored to suit, will help you create a memorable audience experience for all who attend. So to help you achieve this, in this article, we share some top tips for customising a portable or permanent tiered seating solution that ticks every box.
Event-tiered seating essentials
Tiered seating is the first choice for venues across the world, thanks to its innate ability to gradually elevate the audience so that everyone has an unimpaired view of the action. However, with custom-tiered seating solutions, you can take the experience of event attendees to a whole new level by creating seating that matches the environment and aesthetics of the venue.
The ability to customise seating to suit your environment is critical to delivering a first-class experience for both the performers and the audience. Some of the key factors to consider here include the dimensions (ensuring the seating fits comfortably within the space) and materials (e.g. durable to withstand high-use, or weatherproof if used outdoors).
Another great reason to customise your event-tiered seating is that you can create a look and feel that is fit for purpose. For example, while natural timbers and a subdued colour scheme works well in a traditional theatre, for a more fun and vibrant outdoor sporting event, vivid pops of colour catch the eye and generate attention, as seen in the recent sports bleachers seating we created for Netball Australia.
Tiered portable seating vs. permanent
The option to create custom-tiered portable seating or permanent-tiered seating solutions provides you with the flexibility to match both the short and longer-term needs of your space. Portable solutions are fast and easy to set up and take down and are stored away when not in use, while permanent solutions are fixed in place and ready for your next event.
If your events take place in a multipurpose area, such as a school auditorium that doubles as a gym, the option to use tiered portable seating that can be packed away when not in use allows you to fully utilise the space for a wide variety of purposes, as needed.
On the other hand, if your sporting venue or theatre is exclusively used for showcased events, permanent tiered seating allows you to install seating that is fit for purpose and ready to go, without any setup or pack-up requirements.
