Live in-person events are back with a vengeance! And how is that translating to decor and design? In a word – “BAM”! Event designers are putting more effort and budget into large installations than ever before. Curious about what trends are really taking off as we approach another full event season? Here are our top 3 Event Design Trends for 2022.
#1 Floral Installations that Make a Statement
2022 planners and attendees alike have a renewed zest for gathering. One fun way to energize a room is to literally fill it with living things.

#2 Selfie Stations that you can’t help but post on your Insta
Unless you’re hosting an 80’s themed event, the days when people walk into a photo booth for event photos are archaic. Not only are open digital photo booths what people want to see but the rise of the selfie station is nothing to ignore. Brands are taking full advantage of this opportunity to create amazing vignettes that their guests simply can’t resist. Social media is soaking them up and event planners are maximizing on the chance to extend the marketing reach of their events by letting their creativity loose and going all out on the design.

Not only will people fully embrace it, but it will also grab everyone’s attention and it will help you get the buzz you want at your next event. Let your event design work for you by creating an energetic environment & extending your media reach. Not to mention an environment your attendees will be talking about all season.
