Ticketing
Custom - Special/Livestream event ticketing information included in description
Reception
Yes, my event will have a reception
Additional equipment, technology, meeting rooms, dressing rooms, etc.
For 4:30 -6pm event (Korean Cultural event) on Oct 7, as usual, we would need Mic, Sound+ Projection access & Lighting control for the stage would be needed. In the Lobby, we would need 2 long tables with 4 chairs. We borrowed a monitor with stand before. If possible, we could use it again in the Lobby. Considering the Covid-19, we will plan to have packaged food for this year. We used 6 long tables, 10 round tables & chairs that were stored in Zel 280 before. We can use them for an hour (5:50-6:50pm) for this event. There used to be a practice in Zel 280 before or around 3 or 4pm. I am not sure if that is the same this year… Would be good to know that in advance. We will plan to set up and put them back before Orchestra starts their practice in Zel 280 at 7pm as we have done in the past. So as long as tables and chairs are stacked & stored in the room no additional equipment is needed for the reception. (I am also aware the Orchestra’s practice in the main hall from 1:30-3:45.)
