01 Planning process.
We are detailed planners. Everything from our CADs to our Renders and our Production schedules are detailed to precision. Our goal is to anticipate and prepare for everything and to be able to respond rapidly. You will be assigned a Production Manager to manage every logistical aspect of your show – starting with the introductory call, continuing with the onsite show and the invoice.
02 Production team.
We travel with a core crew of LIVE event professionals who regularly operate LIVE shows. Your show will have an engineering lead for Video, Sound, Lighting and Event Management. Our event team is experienced, personable, and dedicated to you and your show.
Our team will be an extension of your team. Seamlessly we will begin establishing trust, reliability, and professional operation.
Scope of Services
Planning is everything. Live events demand attention to detail and a clear process to assure success. Our event managers meticulously check every production detail, anticipate any issues and advise our production partners through every phase of the planning process.
Our audiovisual team strives for constant improvement and assured operation. We approach each and every show to match your unique content and experiential goals by carefully fusing live event production technologies with decades of live event production experience — culminating in a do LIVE better mindset.
We look beyond the obvious and design a show to illicit emotion, enhance learning and memory. Beginning with fully rendered concept to an even more realistic set – our set designs will captivate your audience while lending special attention to all our senses.
