When it comes to events and meetings, there's no room for second chances. You have one opportunity – just one – to get it right. The best quality equipment and technology is key, but even more importantly, you need a highly skilled technical crew. A crew with all the right stuff, right? Personality, professionalism, the ability to solve problems, make decisions, and be unflappable in the moment.
Like most event planners, you probably have used your venue's in-house audio audio visual production and event management service in the past. But were you satisfied? While some venues offer experienced staff and outsource to good providers, others do not deliver the personalized service and meticulous production values as an independent service provider. AMP Event Group, Director of Customer Success, GiGi Sheppard explains the differences:
- Venue staff may be less invested in your success because they have multiple events to manage simultaneously.
- In-house firms pay commissions to the venue, so they only keep part of the fee you pay; they may be tempted to cut corners.
- You may be charged as much as charge 25-38% in additional in service fees.
Says Alfieri, “Here’s how working with the AMP AV team can get you some satisfaction! We are directly accountable to you. You are our only focus. Because event management is all we do, we care about your event as much as you do. And because we do not pay commissions to a venue, we are able to pass along the savings to you. Choosing AMP AV can save you up to 60% on your audio visual production budget.”
