What is event technology / event engineering?

Event technology / event engineering covers all technical aspects used in the planning, organization and execution of events. This includes a wide range of equipment, systems and services that help events such as concerts, trade shows, conferences, corporate events and other events run smoothly. Event technology plays a critical role in creating an immersive and immersive event experience. It is used by event professionals, engineers and specialists who are responsible for the installation, configuration and operation of technical equipment.

Does the Event Experience Team also provide technical planning support?

Yes, we offer comprehensive support in the technical planning of your event. Our experienced team will be happy to advise you on choosing the right technology and draw up detailed technical plans to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

How early should I discuss my technical requirements with the Event Experience Team?

It is recommended to discuss your technical requirements with us as early as possible. The earlier we understand your needs, the better we can develop customized solutions for your event. It is best to contact us, then we can check availability and the required technology.

What are the technical requirements for a livestream?

For a successful livestream, a stable internet connection with at least 15Mb/s upload for the uplink is crucial. It is advisable to use a bandwidth of 50Mb/s or more and a separate internet connection. Dedicated ports should be enabled on company networks and the option to bundle internet lines and use a 4G router as a backup is also available.

In terms of content, a company logo should be provided as a PNG with a transparent background and a background image for the layout. It is important to specify the format of the presentations and if multiple presentations are provided. If needed, a PowerPoint operator with switcher can be provided for quick adjustments. Information should also be provided on planned filming.

Mixed audio and video signals on XLR or HDMI/SDI are required for the event space, as are even and good lighting for the speakers and digital signals of the presentations in FullHD. An early joint inspection of the venue is recommended.

What training / certification does a pyrotechnician need?

The training concept for pyrotechnic objects is mainly divided into indoor and outdoor fireworks. Indoor training courses, marked "BF", are primarily aimed at people working in theaters or at concerts and last about a week. They cover stage fireworks and special effects, including flame projectors. In the outdoor field, there are two-level training courses, known as FWA and FWB. FWA is a one-day basic course that covers the basics of large fireworks and their electrical ignition. FWB specializes in commercial large fireworks displays and allows the participant to conduct unrestricted fireworks displays.

After passing the exam, the participant receives an ID card to use the fireworks they learned, but it is only valid for five years. After that, a refresher training is required, which brings up to date with the latest technology and legislation and allows an exchange of experience.

Our pyrotechnicians have the certificate for indoor as well as outdoor fireworks.

What does sustainability mean in event technology?

Sustainability in event technology refers to the environmentally friendly and resource-saving design, organization and implementation of events. It is about minimizing the negative impact on the environment and promoting socially responsible action. Sustainable event technology takes into account ecological, social and economic aspects and strives for a holistic and long-term perspective.

  • Energy efficiency: The use of energy-efficient equipment and lighting systems reduces energy consumption during the event. This can be achieved by using LED lighting, energy-efficient amplifiers, motion sensors and intelligent control systems.
  • Renewable energy: The use of renewable energy sources such as solar energy or wind energy can reduce the use of fossil fuels and help to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • Waste management: Efficient waste management is important to minimize waste volumes and promote recycling. This includes providing recycling bins, separating waste on site, and working with recycling companies.
  • Material selection: Sustainable event technology emphasizes the use of environmentally friendly materials. For example, recyclable or reusable materials can be used to reduce waste. In addition, low-pollutant materials should be preferred.
  • Transport and logistics: Optimized logistics and transport planning can minimize emissions from the transport of technology and personnel. The use of public transportation or carpooling is encouraged to reduce individual car use.

Sustainability in event technology requires close cooperation between event organizers, venues, service providers and technicians. The aim is to harmonize ecological, social and economic aspects in order to make events more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

What training / certification does a laser technician need?

The training for the certificate of competence for laser technicians includes both practical and theoretical basics of laser technology. The specialized course is divided into single and double lessons and includes a theoretical and a practical examination. In terms of content, the course focuses on the installation, application and monitoring of laser technology, health and safety aspects, legal standards and special requirements for laser installations. The training is based on the specifications of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and is conducted in German. Participants learn in a small, personal environment from experienced instructors and benefit from practice-oriented group work. They learn how to correctly assess and minimize risks and how to use the FOPH reporting portal in practice. Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to safely install and operate laser technology.

Our laser technicians have successfully completed the training for the certificate of competence for laser technicians.

How has event technology changed in the last 10 years?
  • LED technology: The use of LEDs (light-emitting diodes) has become widespread in event technology. LEDs offer high energy efficiency, are long-lasting and enable a wide range of lighting options. They are used for stage lighting, effect lights, LED walls and also for architectural lighting.
  • Advances in audio technology: There have been significant improvements in audio technology, particularly in terms of loudspeaker and amplifier technology. Modern sound reinforcement systems offer higher sound quality, better coverage of the event space and more efficient control of the sound.
  • Video and projection technology: The development of high-performance projectors and LED video walls has revolutionized video and image projection at events. Large and high-resolution screens enable impressive visual effects and razor-sharp images.
  • Advances in wireless technology: Wireless technologies have evolved, especially in the area of microphone and transmission systems. Wireless microphones and wireless communication systems offer more flexibility and freedom of movement for artists, speakers and technicians.
  • Automation and control: Advances in automation technology have simplified the control of lighting, sound and stage elements. Computer-based control systems enable precise programming of light shows, scene changes and special effects.
  • Sustainability and energy efficiency: A growing awareness of environmental issues has also influenced event technology. More energy-efficient equipment and lighting systems have been developed to reduce energy consumption. In addition, more environmentally friendly materials are used and recycling measures are promoted.
  • Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR): Virtual and augmented reality technologies have made their way into event technology. They enable immersive experiences for visitors by displaying virtual worlds and augmented information in real time.


These developments have helped to expand the creative design of events and make the technical aspect even more impressive. Event technology is expected to continue to evolve rapidly as new innovations and technologies enter the market.
