Does it Make Good Sense to Order Your Own A/V Equipment for Your Event?
Today, you can order audio-visual equipment almost anywhere. Even if your venue doesn’t have an in-house A/V department, they’ll have a preferred vendor available. Ordering your own technical equipment seems like a cost-effective approach, right? So what’s the benefit of hiring an event design company?
“The smartest business decision you can make is to hire qualified people. Bringing the right people on board saves you thousands, and your business will run smoothly and efficiently.”
Brian Tracy, Entrepreneur
Actually, the first question you should ask is whether your event only needs to be a workshop, or should it be an extension of your marketing efforts. If you only need simple technical support, such as a mic, projector and screen for PowerPoint presentations, that’s easy enough for in-house staff to handle.
But what if your event could help you understand how well your connecting with your audience, how the attendees honestly feel about your message, product or service, and provide all this information in real time to give you the insight to grow your business? If this is the case, you need event design.
Understand, an event can be designed to create growth in several ways, each producing different results. The most common desire is for an event to help increase your company’s sales and revenue, like successfully motivating your sales team or launching a new product or service. Other ways include building employee loyalty by executing a heartfelt award or recognition program, or maybe celebrating your company’s achievements. It could include the effective and efficient transfer of information in a training or educational conference. Or it could bring all your employees together to one place, at one time, to efficiently align your company values and establish a strong company culture. And in some cases, it’s a major conference that combines several or all of these goals.
Help! Who Do I Call?
To achieve successful events like these, you need to consult with a team that has years of event experience, and one that only uses proven solutions. You want a team that takes the time to learn about your business, your company goals and objectives first, then helps you explore the possibilities of how you can achieve them during your event. This is a far cry from simply taking an a/v order.
The audio-visual equipment is important, there’s no doubt. But to a true, full-service event design company, that’s the last piece of the puzzle. There is so much more that needs to be designed, developed and produced before the equipment is considered.
