Top 5 Things You Need To Know About AV Quotes

Top 5 Things You Need To Know About AV Quotes

By | Event AV Questions | One Comment

concertThe 30,000 person filled stadium roared with anticipation as the lights began to dim. 5 months later we had exceeded our expectations, all because of a cup of coffee and our av quotes.

It all began one sunny afternoon in July. The weather was so nice that the last thing that anybody wanted to do was work indoors. We knew we had an event to begin planning, but that was the last thing on our mind. The event wasn’t until December, anyway.

We had our vendor booked, and as 4pm rolled around, we finally heard back from our AV company. They had sent us the av quotes that appeared to have all the “normal” equipment that we always saw. Eager with anticipation for our afternoon bike ride, we skimmed over the AV quote, signed our names, and made our way out of the office.

Many times event planners assume all AV quotes are equal and skim past the details. In fact, it isn’t until the event day comes that they wish they had spent a little more time reviewing the details. Jon Trask breaks down an AV quote in his webinar about Contracts: Audiovisual & speakers. Below I will outline the top 5 things you need to know about AV quotes and event pricing based on Jon’s webinar. Also, you will learn how coffee could affect the turn-out of your event. Read More

10x Your Event Traffic With Social Media Live Streaming

By | Event Planning Tips | No Comments

At this time of year, my family has a tradition to run through every Christmas movie in our collection.  We watch them one by one, repeated on demand until everyone can recite each by heart.  One story catches me off-guard every year. The Prime Minister of Britain has the courage to stand-up to the naysayers, take a risk and be vulnerable.  He bucks tradition and his audience loves him for it.  I enjoy this story as it is counter-intuitive.  Being vulnerable to many is a sign of weakness. Yet, in the Prime Minister’s vulnerability, his authenticity shines through and the world applauds him (keep reading to find out the movie).  We can use this approach in event marketing knowing that as a brand you can be vulnerable and still win.  Social media live streaming is the tool that can enable this.
