Let’s say you’re doing the same corporate show in 10 cities over the next six months. Many meeting planners and producers might work with a different AV production vendor in each city, using local staff and local tech inventory to try to save money instead of working with one AV provider that can offer nationwide audio visual support.
However, what meeting planners and producers gain in local resources they often lose in institutional knowledge, consistency, and seamless show production. And they often don’t achieve the savings they expected.
3 Reasons to Choose a Nationwide AV Production Partner
1. Gain Strategic Support Instead of a Commodity Solution
With nationwide audio visual support, you’ll gain strategic support instead of a commodity solution. Every time you take your show on the road, do you have the same conversations with different AV techs? Do you constantly need to educate new AV vendors about your goals and needs? Most importantly, do critical details slip through the cracks?
The right team could be making your life easier. Find a partner that knows what’s important to you and your clients and understands how your shows flow. For example, the right partner can weigh priorities based on your needs; provide video, audio, lighting, and staging expertise instead of limited guidance in only 1-2 of those areas; optimize the crew support needed; and choose the right technology for the space and the audience. Whereas local resources leave a lot up to chance, a true partner can maximize your budget through intelligent AV design.
2. Save Money
With nationwide audio visual support, you may actually save money. How is that possible, you may wonder. How can I send gear and people across the country for less money than simply sending people and equipment a few miles down the road?
The savings comes from not having to start from scratch with every show. By providing nationwide audio visual support, they can source equipment and staffing support from proven partners wherever your show is taking place. They might ship small, costly items like a video switcher but get your LED wall from a trusted local partner. When your trusted team knows the ins and outs of your shows, they can make sure you always have the expertise, staffing, and technology you need.
3. Secure More Stable Staffing and Equipment
With nationwide audio visual support, you’ll have more stable staffing and equipment. If you’re doing the same show in 10 cities, your AV event partner can quarantine inventory and segment off regular duty cycle staff, designating specific equipment and labor sources for use on your shows. In this way, your partner can streamline prep time and quality control efforts without affecting the rest of operations, thereby stabilizing your staffing and inventory. Staff support and equipment consistency and reliability increase – at less cost to you.
Choose an AV Production Partner You Can Trust
Meeting planners and producers are increasingly seeing the value of working with a trusted partner instead of releasing numerous RFPs and then sourcing and vetting different teams city by city.
In the end, when you have nationwide audio visual support from your trusted AV production company, you have consistent support from show to show and may even spend less and gain higher value than when you use a series of local resources. You gain the proactive support of a team that knows you and your shows, understands your concerns, and strives to make each show better than the last. The right event production team helps guide your shows to success every step of the way.
