Keeping the Press Happy with a Press Riser
Press risers rentals are used at political events, store openings, groundbreaking ceremonies and other events that can generate local or national interest. Chances are, if you have a press liaison for your event, you are going to need a press riser for your event!
Making sure that the press has the best shot possible is a big part of making sure your event makes it on the evening news. The press likes a good head and shoulders shot of the talent or guest speaker. Shooting upward makes for a bad shot. Most press staff like a straight on shot or, even better, one where they are slightly elevated. Cut away riser rentals are nice for additional video or still shots – and will get you one step closer to a print article.
Additionally, a stable, multi-level riser is critical for making sure your event is covered by the press. Our press risers rentals typically come with safety rail around the entire press riser structure.
