With many outdoor sports seasons coming to an end, your venue may be preparing for a variety special events hosted throughout the off-season. Whether you’re hosting a movie night, a holiday event or one of the other countless special events that come about, it’s important to ensure you’re prepared for the occasion.

During the off-season, consider:

  • Starting-up your display and control systems two days before an event – While your systems are used frequently during the season, this may not be the case in the off-season. To ensure your display and control systems are fully functioning for a special event, fire everything up two days prior to the event. Refer to our Product Maintenance Guide for more detailed instructions on proper start-up procedure.
  • Providing two-week lead time for support – If you are in need of event support or a pre-event check prior to a special event, be sure to contact our Professional Services team at least two weeks prior to the event.
  • Using time to implement new features – For many of you the off-season may not always be as uneventful as one would hope. However, if there is time, the off-season might be a good time to look into some of the new control features and industry trends that can be implemented into your game-day presentation. Check out What’s new for Daktronics Control Systems for 2017 to learn more about new features that can elevate your presentation.
  • Using this time for system maintenance – The off-season typically provides a good time to remove old files/script buttons and run necessary Windows updates. Be sure to include backup systems as well in this process.

Best of luck with your special events this off-season, and as always, contact our Professional Services team for event support and other service resources for your special events.
