17: A Virtual Conversation about Virtual Events with a Production Manager & AV Integrator – Hackler Productions
Welcome to another episode of Event AV & Lighting: demystified Podcast, where we’re featuring several event professionals with different experiences and perspectives in this reality of planning and producing virtual events! If you’ve listened to our previous episodes this month, you know that we’ve been celebrating our ONE year anniversary this entire month by having conversations about this reality in the event industry that was new just a few months ago, but that now is changing yet again and we’re soon going to be navigating a new and somewhat weird transitional time into hybrid events.
Today I have with me virtually, in the studio, Canaan Hackler, the owner of Hackler Productions, also the Production Manager of Capital Church, both located in Meridian, Idaho. Canaan leads with the motto, people first process second. To find out more about Canaan, his projects and experience with virtual events and web-streaming, listen to our full episode.
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.
