Choosing the Perfect Podium or Lectern For You: A Buyer's Guide

Purchasing the right lectern or podium for public speaking can be easily overthought. It's not just a piece of furniture; it sets the tone for your speech, and can make a big difference in how your message comes across. With so many choices and price points out there, it can be tough to figure out which one is best for you.

Let's break it down:

  1. Start by thinking about where you're going to use it and what you'll be using it for. Do you need something portable for on-the-go speeches, or do you want a permanent fixture for your office or conference room? Does it need to be height adjustable to accommodate multiple speakers? Knowing this will help you narrow down your options.

  2. Size and Style: Podiums and Lecterns come in all shapes, sizes, and material. Think about the vibe you want to go for and make sure it fits the space where you'll be speaking. You also want to make sure it's a comfortable height for the speaker and allows for easy mobility.

  3. Features and Accessories: Does it have storage for your notes? Can you hook up a microphone or LED Reading Light if you need to? Do you need an on-board battery to power your microphone, speakers, and reading light? Look for things that will make your life easier when you're up there talking.

  4. Quality Matters: Don't cheap out on this one! You want something that's going to last many years, so look for quality materials like wood or metal. A well-made lectern or podium not only looks good but also gives you bang for your buck in the long run. All of our podiums and lecterns are guaranteed for life. 

  5. Can You Move It Around? If you're going to be lugging this thing from place to place, make sure it's not too heavy or awkward to transport. For especially our heavier podiums, we recommend our Heavy Duty Travel Case.

  6. Check for pictures in use: We have many pictures we would love to share with you privately upon request only (for copyright purposes). 

Conclusion: Finding the perfect podium might seem daunting at first, but it's totally doable if you know what to look for. Contact our wonderful customer service team today and get the help you need to design that perfect podium!
