Lecterns are used for gatherings and events where a speech is to be delivered. Basically, the speaker sits or stands behind a lectern podiun when reading or talking to a number of people. A lectern is a reading desk with a slanted top, on which documents or books are placed as support for reading aloud, as in a scripture reading, lecture, or sermon. The classic design of lectern is straight from the bottom up, with an inclination near the top part. The degree of inclination varies, but the purpose remains. This is where the speaker puts his code or reading document so he can refer to it the whole time he's giving the speech without the audience ever seeing the document. These features usually include a microphone stand, audio-visual controls, sometimes even an integrated computer and recording system. Lectern of this sort are generally attached or integrated into a large desk, as the amount of support material tends to be larger in academic contexts than in straightforward public talks.
A lectern is usually attached to a stand or affixed to some other form of support. To facilitate eye contact and improve posture when facing an audience, lectern may have adjustable height and slant. People reading from a lectern, called lectors, generally do so while standing. Portable lectern, also known as podiums, are extremely easy to set up, needing no tools for construction and only 5 minutes of your time to erect. The position of you lectern in terms of its placing in your exhibition stand is very important, you want your exhibition displays, graphics and products to form an impressive backdrop behind you. Lectern used in academia—generally in seminar rooms and lecture theatres—may have certain features that common lectern lack, based on the technological sophistication of the venue.
There are a lot of perks in having your very own lectern. If holding conferences is a regular thing at your working environment, then you could be saving a lot in investing on your own instead of renting one every time you need a lectern. Furthermore, you can invest in really good ones and be the one who would lease them to others who cannot afford yet to buy for their own! This is a pretty good business to venture into since very minimal maintenance.
