I also work in event staging. With the exception of big-budget extravagant
events, we get little to no *real* rehearsal time, so we pretty much need to
wing everything from the talking head with Powerpoint, to live entertainment
and awards banquets.
There *used to be* a lot of rehearsals, but in the past few years, budgets
have been cut and there's ltttle time for it now. Pretty much just
executives banging through their PP slides, and we may get to see a tiny bit
of blocking for the awards.
