Everybody Hates AV. There, I Said It. Now, Let’s Fix It – April Chapter Luncheon

DAY/DATE:
Wednesday, April 19, 2017

PRESENTER:
Stephen O’Connor

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
Talk to any group of meeting planners and they’ll tell you that one of the most frustrating elements of planning and executing any conference is the AV. From planning to budgeting to on-site issues, AV is what often keeps them up at night. It’s mysterious and complicated. It’s changing all the time. It’s expensive, and frankly, it can make or break an event.
The flip side is, AV can add sizzle and create an emotional connection between your event, event message and audience. It can take the overall impression of your conference from “met expectations” to “mind blown”. But how do you harness the beast that is AV?
In this interactive session, AV and event producer Stephen O’Connor will unlock some of the basic mysteries of AV in order to improve your overall knowledge and control. You’ll walk away with:
· An overall understanding of the perplexing world of AV and over 30 insider secrets.
· Some of the most important basics in planning for AV – venue considerations, shopping for vendors, and labor.
· A better understanding of the fine print of venue and AV contracts and how to adjust them to satisfy your meeting’s objectives and budget.
