You can rent AV equipment anywhere—it’s our mission to be your full-service event production partner. We’ve been at this for over 40+ years and it’s our expertise, commitment to service, and the “whatever it takes” attitude exhibited by our entire crew that keep clients coming back.
Our Show Ready event services extend well beyond setting up a project; it’s a mindset. It’s who we are. Event technology is our gig, and we know it might not be yours! Selecting the right technology partner for your meeting or event shouldn’t just be about logistics, but making the experience impactful and memorable.
It takes technology to make technology work – event technology relates not only to all the app madness out there, but to the preparation and production of your show, and we have that dialed-in.
All-In means being honest, being diligent, but most importantly, being there for our customers and our team. Nothing is perfect, we’re going to be there when it matters most—live
Events can be unpredictable, right? Our team has a varied background, ensuring we have a solution for every element of your event. We know it isn’t just about the planning, but the ability to be agile, handling anything that might come up! Setting out to exceed your expectations, we have the expertise, experience, precision, and determination to get the job done right.
Projectors, screens, cameras, mics, speakers, truss, cable… We could go on and on! Of course we have it all, constantly adding to our inventory to ensure we’re providing the best possible equipment on every event. It isn’t just about keeping inventory, but about building on it, and constantly adding new technologies.
The planning process starts with an initial discovery call. This is where we really dig in and try to understand your audience, your event goals, and wrap our collective heads around exactly what it’s going to take to put on a killer production.
Our communication with you is central to success for us both, and we will always listen to be sure we understand. We aren’t simply order takers — unless that’s what you want from us. We work efficiently with you throughout the entire process. Communication doesn’t end between us because working well with all the other partners involved will help ensure success for you and your team.
Good planning, from what equipment to use based on your goals and your audience, to making sure we keep the labor bill down (and our crew out of overtime & off meal-penalties!) is vital. Because we want to be good stewards of your budget, the best way to do that is proper planning right along with you from the start.
Through communication and planning, we’ll agree how we can meet your needs, which is executed through the equipment and staff we provide. Technical design involves everything from whether we use front- or rear-projection, delay screens & projectors, and on and on. Our team starts with the end in mind, proposing a design that will accomplish your goals, while being flexible along the way.
Effective execution is the key to bringing good design to life. Our dedicated team ensures a seamless experience, collaborating closely with your staff and speakers to clarify roles and schedules. Precision in hitting every cue is our top priority. Many clients who choose AV Chicago as their partner stay with us, impressed by how we elevate them to rockstar status. Think of us as your committed roadies, ready to join your tour whenever you need us.
