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!”

Atlantic City

Last year was the highest grossing ever for the United States commercial gaming industry.* Meeting planners who hold gatherings at casinos may just feel like they’ve hit the jackpot, too. Casino-based events provide one-stop convenience—the amenities of convention centers and bountiful hotel rooms, plus activities, dining, and nightlife. 

 

Doreen Guerin grew up an Air Force brat, living in Texas, Louisiana, and later England and France. When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
