StageSpot announced the launch of its online custom gobo creator.

The platform was designed for industry professionals and their clients. The creator gives users the ability to choose from more than 75 pre-made templates or to upload custom images and artwork, making the process quicker.

Gobo is an acronym for “Goes Before Optics.” A gobo is a disc made from steel, glass, or plastic used as a partial screen in front of a light.

“StageSpot designed this platform so that DJs, event planners and stage professionals can get the exact custom designs they need without the hassle they may have experienced in the past,” says Kevin Richie, co-founder of StageSpot. “While gobos have been widely used in our industry for decades, very few advancements have been made to simplify the ordering process.”

The gobo was created with the intent to modernize the process and avoid obstacles faced when ordering. The platform has eliminated time and costs of creating artwork to match particular specifications or hiring a graphic designer to complete the work. Users are able to create personal catalogs in order to easily personalize, save, share, modify, and re-order their own templates, again and again.

“We listened to our customers and created a user-friendly technology to allow them to create any design they could imagine, accurately and efficiently,” says Richie. “Now we’ve put the customer back in the driver’s seat to create what they need and want, without any room for error—which just happens to be from the comfort of their own laptop or desktop!”

Teneo Hospitality Group brought its innovative networking and charity program to New Jersey recently with an interactive event at the spectacular Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange. The gathering was designed to benefit HomeFront and was attended by meeting planners from the Northeast and representatives of Teneo-member hotels and destinations from the US and internationally.

 

Following a multimillion dollar renovation, Hotel Sanarac on Sanarac Lake will reopen in late 2017, boasting a new ballroom, redesigned guest rooms, Ampersand Salon and Spa and Campfire Adirondack Grill + Bar.

The hotel dates back to the 1920s and celebrates its local heritage as a gathering point for Adirondack adventures like kayaking, hiking and snowshoeing. The Great Hall, inspired by the Davanzati Palace of Florence, features painted beams depicting local scenery including geese, hare and fish.

 

POP QUIZ! Did you notice anything different about the website? I’ll give you a hint … it’s the title! Go ahead and look again, as we are now Northeast Meetings + Events. Cue applause.

All kidding aside, we have come a long way since the spring of 2014 when we launched the first Meetings + Events title in our collection on the East Coast. You may not already know, but we are part of a collection of 10 regionally focused publications (and you can subscribe to all of them if you’d like by visiting MeetingsMags.com).
