5 ways to get the most out of your in house av provider

Whether you’re integrating a new audio-visual provider onto your property or want to create a more collaborative relationship with your current provider, here are a few tips to get the most out of your partnership:

  • Get acquainted. Share your property’s core values and have your AV provider do the same. Create an open environment to fuel future ideas and collaboration.
  • Spend a day cross training with your AV provider. If each team understands the intricacies and nuances of each other’s role, planning, set-up and execution will go more smoothly.
  • Ask your AV partner to get creative and demonstrate how employing the right technology for each unique space will drive both impact and efficiency, and benefit the bottom line.
  • Allow your AV partner to speak directly with the client to discuss different ideas and encourage flexibility when it comes to their budget parameters.
  • Include your AV partner in post-event meetings. Everyone benefits in the long-run from an open discussion with constructive feedback.
  • The bottom line is that your AV partner should be just that, a true partner in every way and an extension of your team. Consider these tips to positively affect the ongoing success of your events.
