Special effects to create a striking visual impact at your event

Use special effects to WOW your audience or event attendees.  The right effects can create a spectacular atmosphere, enhance drama and leave a lasting impression.  Read on to learn how we can help you.

Special effects:

  • Smoke effects – haze, smoke and dry ice can add an atmosphere to otherwise bland rooms.
  • Custom gobos – project your logo (or an image of your choice) at your event.  A great way to brand your event. Gobos create an impact, are cost effective and re-usable.
  • LED dance floor  – a popular way to end any party.  Our LED dance floor lights up and changes colour in time with the music.
  • Starcloth – no gala dinner or awards show would be the same without a twinkling starcloth backdrop.
  • Pyrotechnics – a spectacular addition to any event:  cover the room with confetti, shower award winners with sparks or close your event with fireworks.
  • Lasers – when used with smoke effects and pyrotechnics, lasers can add a whole new dimension to any event, party or product launch.
  • Projection mapping – create a highly visual and colourful impact on a budget by making use of our projection mapping effects for your event or production.
  • Confetti cannons – Enhance the celebratory atmosphere at your next event by hiring one of our confetti cannons.

Case study #1:  Special effects hire

Stage Connections toured six UK festivals with Jaegermeister, providing both strobe lighting and smoke effects in addition to lighting, stage power distribution and sound services.

We toured Creamfields, Download, Sonisphere and Splendour working with headline acts including Feeder, The Bluetones, Bowling for Soup and Funeral for a Friend. You can read the case study and view some photos from the events by clicking on the adjacent box.

In addition, we recently provided the sound, lighting and special effects for an annual awards ceremony held by a large airplane part manufacturer here in the UK.

As part of our service, we provided a gobo to project an image of the world map on to the set. You can read that case study and view images from the event by clicking here.
