Technical Meeting & Event Production

After the venue, audio visual is often one of the largest budget items, yet so often planners are unable to make sense of a typical proposal. Do you know how many lumens your projector should have? Should you use a PAR fixture or Lekos to light the podium? Inputs, outputs, sound boards, teleprompters… admit it, you’ve glazed over the details on occasion and handed it off to the “tech team” to manage.

Producing events can be a fine art, especially when it comes to gatherings that involve a stage, lectern, and presentations requiring the coordination of audiovisual production, lighting, speakers and many other components. This course will empower you to understand what kind of gear, staff, and set up your event actually needs to function properly, look right, and be cost-effective.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Gain a detailed understanding of all audio visual and lighting elements involved in producing most meetings and events.
  2. Determine all the given sound and visual inputs required for most events, and how those needs need to be addressed from a technical standpoint.
  3. Gain a thorough understanding of how to work with speakers in preparing presentation decks for an event.
  4. Identify criteria for selecting the right venue and vendor(s) for your event, from a technical production vantage point.
