    I don't have any experience with LED ringlights, just "normal" studio ring flashes.
    First off, without the actual product, it's just a shot in the dark on how much illumination the LED light will give just based on the numbers. Just keep in mind most LED ringlights are meant for close-up or macro work, with the fall off I don't think you'll get much light at typical full body shot distance (~5-10m). Unless you just want that ring shaped catch lights in the eyes. No doubt it gives that shadowless look, but the light is very on-axis. Unless your clients are found of the "deer caught in headlights" look. Forget about doing group photos with a ring light, you won't get any form of even illumination across the group.

    In short, just get a decent flash from your camera manufacturer if you're really keen on event photography.
