Every venue has pros and cons. We evaluate the relative conditions between your favorite choices for production issues.

Physical limitations, loading dock access, weight restrictions, HVAC, lighting, power and staffing issues.

Stage America does not own equipment so you're  not restricted by our inventory and overhead.

We bid to at least 3 local vendors in each discipline (lighting, sound, video, etc.) to achieve the best results for your event.

We design to your needs and budget. After completing the room CAD drawing and an approved production schedule, we present terrific options to best suite your event.

You and your creative team are involved in every step.

Beginning with off site rehearsals, and continuing through tech and dress rehearsals, Stage America professionals assist you and your presenters to ensure their on-stage success.


30+ years of expertise in site scouting!
