From concerts and plays to exhibits and conventions, live event production designers do it all. With the wide variety of venues and client demands, production designers operate in a high-pressure industry where they have to be flexible and able to adapt to given settings, which can be difficult when you’re hundreds of miles away from the site and your design associates are unable to travel to the venue and see what you’re working with. Traditional documentation can help designers gain an understanding of what they’re working with, but it’s not the same as experiencing a physical space for themselves. However, with the rise of virtual reality (VR) technology, there is an improvement to this problem.
