Unique Venues For Unique Events

We believe that every event has the potential to be a memorable experience, regardless of the venue. Recently, we had the pleasure of planning and executing a retirement ceremony for a client in a plane hangar in Washington DC.

This unique location allowed us to think outside of the box and create a one-of-a-kind event. Our team transformed the hangar into a stylish and sophisticated venue, complete with elegant decor and lighting that complemented the aircraft on display.

We ensured that every detail was carefully planned, from the layout and seating arrangements to the staging and audio-visual setup, to provide a seamless and unforgettable experience for our client and their guests.

The City of Associations

Working with long-time partner ASAE we reinvigorated their ASAE Summit Awards. This time we took the gala to the National Building Museum.

LAI Live's scenic concept used parallel bands of material that bonded together at the top to create a letter A, representing "The Power of A."

The event had a unified, sophisticated, and festive visual atmosphere for attendees with elegant on-stage scenic elements and graphic art showcasing navy blues and pops of gold metallic tones.

LAI Live utilized the museum's space to its full potential by adding screens and sound into the outer courts for attendees and encouraging guests to fill the entire show space to allow for social distancing.

How We Do Event Production in Washington, D.C.

Every event starts with a dream, and LAI Live wants to ensure as much of it comes to fruition as possible. That's why any event we run begins with a detailed conversation.

We want to get to know the event holder, their business, and what they hope to receive from the event. We'll discuss motive, schedule, decor, and guests to develop a clear picture of what we have to do to make the show a success in your eyes. From there, we can start putting your plans into action.

When you work with LAI Live, you won't need any other team to ensure your event runs without a hitch. From venue scenic and branding to speaker planning and AV setup, our professionals know how to handle it all, even when the unexpected occurs. Taking your show to a different city? We've traveled with our clients across the nation and globally too.

In-Person, Virtual, and Hybrid Opportunities

Recent years have helped everyone develop new skills in dealing with the unexpected. Even now, as the world transitions back to “normal,” the entertainment industry finds itself trying to get back on its feet to deliver the immersive and exciting experiences people want to see.

During this time, we've become specialists in remote and hybrid events, allowing people of all comfort levels to enjoy your live experience how they want to. Our in-person, virtual, and hybrid opportunities also offer you more flexibility with last-minute schedule changes. Whether your venue cannot accommodate an influx of guests or one of your speakers can't get to you in person, these fail-safes will keep the show moving, avoiding cancellations and rescheduling that can put a damper on your event.

Planning Your RFP

We're ready to start planning for your Washington, D.C., event whether it's next month or next year. The first step in solidifying your goals will be creating and signing an RFP — a request for proposal. It should be as thorough as possible, giving us a comprehensive view of your:

  • Budget: We've developed stunning events on nearly any budget. Give us a challenge, and see what we can do!
  • Schedule: Is your event only a couple of hours, or will it occur over multiple days? Show us your schedule so we can ensure we have our staff on-premises for as long as necessary.
  • Equipment needs: What tools will you require to make things run smoothly? We have an arsenal of microphones, podiums, and other equipment to outfit your venue.
  • Overall goals: What's your event's purpose? Whether you're fundraising or spreading the word about a new business offering, this information can help us frame every component of your setting, decor, and information to achieve success.
