Services

Your event needs to be tailored to your exact needs. We'll walk you through the planning, stand by your side in the implementation, and celebrate your success when it's all done.

Planning

You’ve put a huge amount of time and effort into planning your event. AVO will assess all of the audio visual requirements for your show and then orchestrate a seamless production from start to finish.

Audio

You need to be heard clearly by everyone in the room. Especially the executives sitting near the back. AVO will source sound equipment to match the size and acoustics of your venue and ensure that proper testing is done before your event begins.

Visual & Video Presentation Management

You’ve prepared a video presentation that will knock your audience’s socks off. Now maximize the impact by ensuring it can be seen from all angles and in high resolution.

Webcasting

Reach beyond the walls of your venue. Expand your audience by webcasting your event to satellite locations or individuals across the country and around the world.

Scenic Design

Atmosphere matters. Lighting sets the mood and creative backdrops can enhance your setting and complement your branding.

Testimonials

  • Becky Bays, Coordinator, Canadian Mining Hall of Fame

    AVO was a pleasure to work with. Marcel was very responsive to all of our event technology needs, made suggestions to improve our attendees’ experience and was respectful of our budget.

  • Lynn Addae, Membership Services Manager, OFCP

    One aspect of my job at the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy is to plan and organize conferences and workshops. Because some of these conferences have a large number of participants with cerebral palsy and/or various other disabilities, our event technology requirements can be complex.

    At one venue, 11 years ago, I contracted an AV company who, on the second day of the event, did not show up. At that time, Marcel Potvin came to our rescue. I was so impressed with Marcel that from that time on I contracted him for all our event technology needs.

    Marcel is professional and reliable. More importantly, he is sensitive to our participant’s unique needs and operates with kindness, compassion and respect.

  • Scot Cameron, CO2 Digital

    I think Marcel’s group was the best I’ve ever worked with. The timing on every transition was smooth and they managed to get a few candid video close ups which really added to the show.
