Why hiring a mobile trailer stage is the right choice for your next outdoor event

Running an event on a budget can be challenging; when you begin to add up the AV and staging requirements as well as venue hire many businesses and community groups find the choice to move to an outdoor event a valid one. Using mobile trailer stage hire over traditional stage hire and event rigging may even help reduce the spend on an impressive event to ‘WOW’ the crowds! 

The advantages of using a mobile trailer stage can very quickly leave you reconsidering your traditional stage hire.  Along with having a chat to us about your individual needs, below we list a few advantages below so you can consider a mobile trailer stage when planning your next outdoor event.

Reduce the impact on your surrounding environment

When using an outdoor area such as a local park or reserve there are many restrictions and specifications the event holder needs to adhere to, to ensure minimal damage to the surrounding environment and to ensure they are working within the restrictions of the local council or venue management.  Traditional stage hire and rigging can involve the use of some heavy machinery to set up and pack down; this can lead to some damage in the area.  By using mobile trailer stage hire, the staging is second to none for both performers and the audience in terms of visual appeal, safety standards, ease of use and the set up does not involve heavy machinery; just tow in and tow out. The impact of heavy machinery is minimised and the setup time is also reduced.

Saving time and labor costs

The simple fact a mobile trailer stage can be set up quickly and easily with less machinery means there are fewer costs involved with set up and pack down.  By having your event management crew tow the hired stage into place and carefully setting up with a smaller team means less bump in time for your event production team and also saves on the cost of labour and additional equipment hire.  When planning an event on a strict budget or keeping a lower-cost outdoor event in mind, the use of a mobile trailer stage can be a budget saver, while still giving you the results you would expect from a traditional stage set up.

Special effects and the ‘WOW’ factor

Lighting, sound and all your AV requirements are very much able to be achieved to the same standards as both you and your audience would expect, with no shortage of special effects available to really create a memorable experience. 

Some types of events taking advantage of the unique benefits of an outdoor stage are community carols by candlelight, community concerts, fundraising events and covid-safe events as we return to restrictions being eased. The mobile trailer stage allows for great line of sight to the performances, allowing the audience to immerse themselves in their surroundings while they enjoy the entertainment.

With some great results for community groups and businesses, we have successfully delivered outdoor festivals and events by introducing our new mobile trailer stage as part of our end-to-end solution for covid-safe and outdoor events. 

We recently helped The City of Monash present a covid-safe event that had the community dancing on the grass and the council events team couldn’t have been happier to see the engagement created during the event, with everyone enjoying clear views of the performers and just enjoying the return of events in the great outdoors.  Live at Warrawee was a fabulous event and a great example of what can be achieved with a mobile stage.
