09: Questions to ask your AV Provider/Partner
by Tree-Fan Events Podcast

In this episode I will be talking about ways of getting the most out of your AV partner,  I will be discussing AV RFPs or proposals, what it takes to hire an AV supplier or vendor and what questions would you be asking when partnering with a new AV provider. While AV provider is used quite a lot in the industry, I like to refer to this title as AV partner, because what you really want out of this relationship is a partnership, you want someone that will have your back and look out for you, will understand your vision, will work tirelessly  towards accomplishing your goals, and will basically provide more than just AV. Remember, you’re hiring a provider to manage a significant portion of your event for you. If you don’t trust them as your partners then they’re not the right fit for you. A true partner will offer input based on their experience & expertise, even in areas that they’re not technically being “paid” to oversee, and that simple act can make a world of difference in the outcome of your next event because you should be looking for more than just an equipment provider. This will be a great topic for any event planner and professional that finds themselves in the position to create such new partnerships and relations. So stick around and let’s explore this topic together!
