    Keynote Speaker General Session

Keynote speakers for general sessions are often the centerpiece of your event and require specialized attention to make sure everything runs smoothly. Depending on the size of your event and the shape of your presentation hall, general sessions can be extremely simple – a sound system with microphone – or they can be significantly more complex – multiple projectors, multiple video sources, specialized lighting, highly upgraded sound, staging sets, and more.

Furthermore, the content of the presentation will also influence the technology. Presentations that are text or data heavy require a different type of projector and screen than presentations that are more focused on multimedia elements. Breakout Audio Visual has experience working with industry conferences, armed forces, medical associations, Fortune 100’s, and everything in-between, so we have learned a there is one common goal: showcase the presenter while engaging the audience and decreasing stress for the event organizer.

Lastly, it is important to note that keynote presenters often prefer a wireless lavalier microphone (the one that hooks on to your shirt lapel) in addition to having a podium with microphone available. Presenters also often request a wireless slide advancer “clicker” and be prepared to hear that the stage lighting is too bright (though that is necessary for the audience to see the speaker clearly).

Key AV elements to a general session include:

  • – Podium microphones
  • – Table microphones
    (for a panel discussion)
  • – Aisle microphones
    (for audience interaction)
  • – Wireless lavalier microphones
  • – Seamless switchers
  • – Digital or analog sound system
  • – Presentation laptops
  • – Screens and projectors
  • – Confidence monitors
    (shows speaker the next slide)
  • – Signal distribution equipment
    (such as splitters and amplifiers)

 
Each event production plan begins with a conversation where we discuss your objectives and your budget. With more than 30 years of combined experience, we understand what your keynote speakers needs and how to deliver on time and on budget.

“Kurt, thanks again for ANOTHER awesome AFFI-CON. You and your team knocked it out of the park at the annual meeting! I think the AFFI team loved the headsets. I look forward to another great FBEC in March!”
