Make Your Event Memorable With These 3 Kinds of Lights

Event lighting is crucial. It creates your desired ambience, gives depth to your space, and pulls every aspect of your event together. In addition, it lets you showcase your performers or speakers and make them the centre of everyone’s attention.

When utilized and designed properly, your lighting can provide your audience with a visual experience they are sure to remember for years to come. However, although it is important, it is often overlooked. 

Knowing the right kind of lighting to use is one of the best ways to make your event memorable. Here are three kinds of lights you can use in your event:

Iridescent lights

Iridescent bulbs are considered vintage light bulbs since they are the traditional source of light. Unlike fluorescent and LEDs, they produce warm colours. They are also literally warm—they can heat up small rooms by 1-2 degrees, making them ideal if you want to establish a warm, homey feeling for your event, especially during winter.


Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are known for their energy efficiency, high brightness and intensity, reliability, and long life. Compared to traditional light bulbs, they produce the same level of brightness for less electricity, emit less heat, are cheaper to manufacture and replace, and can last hundreds of hours longer. 

LEDs are ideal for your event because they come in a wide range of colours and can be pre-programmed to move intelligently at the press of a button. They allow you to create a wide variety of effects, moods, and compositions.

RGBW LED chips 

Gone are the days when you would have to put a coloured gel in front of your incandescent fixture. This was incredibly inconvenient because event planners used to have to set up and rig every fixture on your event space with an appropriate gel. Worse, the positions and colours couldn’t be changed! 

With the RGBW LED chips, you can create any colour you want and electronically run them. They are a combination of red, green, blue, and white light-emitting LEDs, and you can explore various controls to create your desired look.

Intelligent LEDs

Moving or intelligent LEDs have lamps and lenses with controllable motors that let you move your light around and pre-program all their movements. They create the best lighting schemes when flown above stages and rigged on lighting bars. 

Meanwhile, we have LED profiles that can give your event space a futuristic appeal. Made with durable materials, they protect your LED strip lights from potential damage.

Pixel mapping

Through image or video pixel mapping, you can send LEDs through image or video source materials and set them to display across several fixtures simultaneously. The LED fixtures you can use for this effect are usually a square or rectangular grid and pad or tablet-fitted with four to more than a thousand LEDs. Best of all, you can map any content, from your business logo to your promotional video. 


Using proper event lighting can turn your average event into an extraordinary one. To leave your guests in awe, determine the kind of mood you are trying to create for your event and choose one that best suits the ambience you’re going for.
