Outdoor events are our speciality and taking your event outside, especially over the warmer months can create a whole new experience for your potential customers.

But what are your options in terms of outdoor audiovisual hire? Where do you start?

What are the benefits?

Lucky for you – we have the answers. 

In order to organise an outdoor event, you first need to establish what type of event you wish to host and the type of equipment you will need for your special event. 

Over the years, Hybrid AV has provided AV hire and support to many outdoor events. Check out our recommendations below for the most popular events we help organise:

Live sporting event: 

There is nothing better than experiencing your favourite sport on the big screen, whether it’s the Premier League or the Formula 1 British Grand Prix.

Here at Hybrid AV, we have experience in providing professional outdoor AV solutions. Our outdoor PA system and LED screen hire has always been a popular choice amongst our clients over the years and is increasingly in demand during Spring/Summer especially when live sporting events are involved.

This form of event has many benefits and by hiring a professional team, you can be safe in the knowledge that all equipment is of the highest rating and you will be able to create a unique outdoor experience for your customers in the beautiful sunshine!

Outdoor cinema experience: 

The outdoor cinema experience has continued to increase in popularity and has been around since 1916!

Our outdoor cinema experiences aren’t just made for blockbusters, they make the perfect alternative for corporate events too! Think ‘outside the box’ and show your presentation on the big screen, incorporating professional PA systems for the ultimate wow factor.

Knowing that or British weather is temperamental, we can provide you with a 100% weatherproof solution by providing you with our LED walls. With important elements such as HD quality and glare-free screens, they make the perfect solution to your outdoor cinema experience, allowing your customers to experience the magic of film (or your latest commercial showreel) – without any complaints of missing the big screen action!

Our experienced technicians will be there to install and test the screen with your content to ensure that there are no technical issues on the day.


When we think of warmer days, music events are definitely at the top of the list and what better way to experience the power of music than the outdoors! 

Entice and create engagement with your attendees by incorporating the use of powerful AV technology to make an impact. 

We provide a whole package for your outdoor music event by setting up your stage, as well as preparing and setting up the lighting and sound system.

  • Hybrid Av have been supplying audio visual equipment to Leicester Tigers for over 25 years. I have personally been involved for the last 17 years on the events side of the business and have always had a good working relationship with their team. In addition to the general conference business that Hybrid Av support, we hold two end of year award dinners, one for our sponsors and one for our supporters, where Hybrid Av manage the AV side of the night.
    This year we have an additional commercial dinner which again we will bring Hybrid Av on board.

  • Without exception, the feedback we have had is that it was the best event yet. We threw a number of extra challenges at you and the team this year which you responded to calmly and without issue.
    There were many, many things that could have gone wrong with an event that becomes more complex each year and the important thing is that we can have absolute confidence that should something happen, it will be dealt with and resolved quickly and without fuss and your team give us that confidence.

  • I just want to officially thank you so much for making the Remembrance event at the NMA the best ever. Your guys on the day were brilliant, please pass on our thanks and gratitude in helping to make the event very special.
    The event was a massive success and I have received many messages from people saying how much they enjoyed the service.
    What we did this year was very successful and we hope to repeat it again next year.

  • Thank you so much for your help and support with the event last week. As you know it was a new client for us so we were keen to get it right!! The client was thrilled with all aspects of the service received, and your company really helped to elevate the image and professionalism of their event which is fantastic news!
    We are hopeful that we will be offered the opportunity to work with the client again next year so fingers crossed you will be part of all of that!

  • I cannot fault the fabulous customer service I receive from your organisation. I organise some very large events on a bi-monthly basis and one thing I do not have to worry about is AV and IT. The Technician (and I have to pay special thanks to ‘Jono’) is superb and we ask for him personally due to his knowledge and unflappable nature. I would also like to thank ‘Janine’ in the office – always extremely helpful.

    Business Administrator/PA, NHS
  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the work and efforts you put in last week at the Belfry.
    As per usual you were fantastic and provided a fabulous set both for the conference and gala dinner.
    I also wanted to say a big thank you to your team for helping with setting out the breakout rooms as the Belfry split down the room!
    I look forward to working with you again in the future 
    Speak soon!
