What is Modular Staging?

Modular staging is fast becoming the new way of constructing event staging quickly and easily for all types of events – large and small.

But what is modular staging, and how can it help simplify your event design and construction?

Modular stage systems: what are they?

Modular staging systems refer to deconstructed, portable stage infrastructure, which is designed to be quickly and easily constructed into a complete platform onsite.

Modular systems are provided as individual components, rather than a pre-assembled structure or a structure which has to be entirely built onsite – this offers greater convenience in terms of delivery and construction than traditional stage building methods.

However, modular stage systems still offer the same quality as traditional staging systems – they are weight bearing, stable platforms which catch the eye of all audience types.

Why use a modular staging system?

Modular staging systems are oftentimes preferred over traditional construction methods because of their many benefits. Modular staging systems offer:

Easy transportation and storage

Modular sections are easier to transport and store than platforms which need to be completely built onsite or are transported as partially complete structures. This also decreases the environmental impact created by transportation vehicles.

Quick set up and deconstruction

Modular systems are built for a speedy construction and deconstruction, perfect for events adhering to tight project timescales.


Strength and quality

The strength and quality of modular structures does not differ from traditional staging, with modular structures offering appropriate strength for their applications, whether used for catwalks or car shows.

Light weight

Compared to traditional timber structures, lightweight modular aluminium structures are easy to handle, meaning they can be handled with a decreased labour force, so that fewer hands are required on site.

Customisable features. 

Modular staging systems are completely customisable units, and can be made to the necessary dimensions, however big.

What is Modular Staging

What are modular staging systems used for?

Modular stages can be used for a variety of applications where a raised platform is required. Some of these applications include:

Corporate event staging

Corporate events are events sponsored by a company; they may require modular stages for a professional platform to host conferences, award evenings, or team building activities.

Trade shows staging

Trade shows provide an environment for networking and to promote new or existing products. Trade shows staging should complement the product on display, whilst attracting the eye of both potential investors and consumers.

Sporting events staging

Sports events can be held for the hosting of a live competition or for the events which occur prior to and following a competition. Sports events may require staging for presentations and winner’s podiums, amongst other things. Dynamic staging can be created with modular units to ensure staging is suitable for the event.

Conference staging

Conferences allow groups of people to discuss matters of interest. Conference staging should provide a platform which is conducive to clear audio and unobstructed lines of sight for successful and productive presentations.  

Seminar staging

Seminars are held for academic discussions, and may require staging in order to structure and drive the conversation. Seminar staging should highlight the key speakers for the audience, so that the seminar can be participated in by all.
