Choosing a service provider isn’t always a walk in the park. Whether you’re in need of a tailor, a builder or an audio-visual company, you want to think carefully and do your research before you agree to do business.
There’s a lot riding on your AV company when you’re putting on an event – especially if your event is tech-heavy… which most events are.
That’s why the experts at AVisual Productions have put together some pointers on how to choose the right AV company for your event. While we believe we’re the perfect team to service your event, we’ll let you decide after reading this post!
Not all events are the same, and some production companies have more experience in certain events than others. Would you get the same company to handle a funeral one week and a 2000-attendee rock concert the next?
Well, actually, you might. AVisual Productions have experience across the board, servicing all sorts of events when it comes to audio and visual needs. Conferences, educational events, digital meetings, concerts, festivals, trivia nights, private events – at AVisual, we make all events a success.
So, they say they can make your event a hit – but where’s the proof? Photos and videos of an AV company’s past work is what you need to check out before giving them the contract. This way, you can see the work that they’ve done and get a better idea of whether it’s to your taste, or to a high-enough standard.
What’s even better than looking at examples of past work from an AV company? Asking for references. By talking to past clients of your AV company, you’re able to get a glimpse of how smoothly operations went, and how satisfied they were with the overall experience.
It’s a big red flag if your AV company isn’t able to provide at least three references of past clients. They should be chomping at the bit to give you the names and numbers of previous clients – this shows that they’re proud of their work!
And now for a factor that affects pretty much everyone: budget. Ask for an accurate quote before agreeing to hire an AV company. The good thing is, there shouldn’t be too much variation in quote if you’re looking at high quality production companies like AVisual Productions. Sure, if you search on Gumtree, you might get someone remarkably cheap with no website, past work examples and references… but we don’t exactly recommend doing so!
