How do I calculate the amount of power I’ll need for my event? Does the venue have that much? Does it have it in the right locations? Why does it cost so much to have ‘power drops’ where I need outlets? What’s the difference between amps, volts and watts? If I need a generator, what do I need to know?
So much of what goes into event production requires electrical power. Yet most planners know dangerously little about their event’s electrical needs. Production expert Brandt Krueger lays it all out in an easy to understand manner, including what items typically require power, how much power they consume, and typical power costs. We’ll also touch on safety, power location, negotiation points, and the most common mistakes planners make with it comes to power and generators.
- Explain the difference between amps, watts and volts.
- List common event items and identify approximately how much power each is likely to use.
- Identify key factors to consider when renting a generator.
- List potential risks involved when working with electrical items, and best practices for avoiding them.
