How different shisha Expo / Festivals works with Hookah Battle (International League)
During our 12 years history we have worked with many different hookah festivals and expos, I have compilated my thoughts what do we expect from expo and what we are ready to give.
What do we need from Expo:
1. Stage (no creteria for specific sizes) should be comfortable for: 5 Jury members with table and chairs, 2 showrunners, hookah battle team up to 3 persons who entering the stage and present their hookah
2. Sound equipment: at least 2 microphones for the showrunners (perfect if we can have 3 microphones – we can give 1 to the Jury members which is more comfortable).
Usually we have 2 persons showrunners: 1 person speak English (for the international live broadcast) and 2nd person translate into the local language (for the local expo auditory):
3. If the expo / festival is going outdoor – important to have a roof for stage, to protect Jury from sun burn or rain.
4. Directional stage lighting (no need – if its enough light on your expo, or Hookah Battle is going outdoor during light day period). We can not make a good live broadcast, if its gonna be too dark.
5. Usually we have 12 teams for Hookah Battle. One team can be from 1 to 3 persons. We need you to provide a personal table for each team (12 tables near the stage). Does not matter what kind of shape of table – square or round. It should be comfortable to stay around 1-3 perons
12 tables for contestants should be located near or around the stage. Contestants locate their hookahs (each team on a personal table) and guests of the expo can degustate hookahs from each contestant team
6. (Optional) Perfect if you can make a LED screen with a camera man and live-broadcasting of the event to the stage LED screen (usually we have this concept on HCS expo, which is really nice). Expo guests who are located far from the stage can see whats going on.
7. The Jury tables: can be 3 tables (with 150-200 cm length each table X3 = 450-600 cm in total) + 5 chairs for the Jury
On the Jury table we will locate our branded table cloth. You will dont need to print this table banner, we will print it in our office put in our travel bad and bring with our administration team.
8. Background banner with our design layout. The logo of your expo will be integrated into the center of this banner. We will ask you to print a backround banner on the stage (and locate and mount it behind the Jury table).
We use a background banner also to make a nice pictures with the winners
No need for background banner, if you can make a LED screen behind the Jury table:
(Optional) Possible to discuss the appearance of some Rap Hookah Battle artists with the performance of songs for the guests of the expo
Or Hookah Battle smoke tricks artists:
9. DJ from expo. We need a guy who can run some uplifting music while teams entering the stage one by one. Sometimes teams ask to run some particular music for their stage entry to impress people. Important! All audiotracks should not be conflict with Youtube music copyrights, otherwise our live-broadcast could be blocked by youtube.
10. Free entrance to all days of expo for:
– Hookah Battle administration (3-4 persons + videomaker + photographer)
– The Jury (5 persons)
– Teams (up to 12X3 = 36 persons)
11. Place to locate an electric charcoal burner + access to water (so contestants will be able to fill water in their hookah bases)
