national AV rentals and event lighting

AV Connections national national AV rentals and event lighting is thirty this year, our history and culture of excellence prevails. We have been blessed with great customers and business communities. We've loved every exciting moment of founding and expanding AV Connections' AV rentals and event lighting businesses in North and South Carolina.

We were founded in 1984 by Brad and Margie Luckhart in Winston-Salem, North Carolina to serve the hotel conference industry there with AV rentals and presentation services. In growing our business over these thirty years, we have expanded to serve more conference and event markets nationally with branch offices. We've added employees who became long term contributors to our success and grew to see our Charleston, SC branch headed up by our son, and now Vice President, Jared Luckhart.

We have continued to serve the AV conference technology rental market by broadening our inventories of national AV rentals and event lighting selections in each branch. We continue to increase our market shares through dogged pursuit of excellence and challenging ourselves to provide the next great piece of technology to our clients along with the customer service excellence which is the cornerstone of our business philosophy.

Over the years, we have seen many competitors come and go. Our dedication and constant attention to detail in every area of our business has kept us nimble and prepared. Some tiny part of thirty years as a most successful national AV rentals and event lighting company owes to luck, but it is the tiniest part of our business. It is hard work that brought us this far, and we know we can count on it, attention to detail, and reliability to see us ahead for many more generations. An easy road, it never is, a worthwhile one which we love, it has been at every moment.

AV Connections thanks thirty years of dedicated customers for their business and looks forward to each day ahead with same energy of that first day in 1984.

AV Connections provides AV for Grand Opening of Ashley Furniture Corporate Plant in NC

Posted on November 10, 2014

Grand opening AV rentals NC


It was a big day in Advance, NC, for all of us from AV Connections, Inc. providing AV for Grand Opening of the new Ashley Furniture Corporate Plant, and for 650 people who will get jobs in this new location. Our company was founded here in North Carolina thirty years ago today. In that time, we've seen the ups and downs of the cities we service for AV rentals, each of them close to our hearts. We've watched the Triad boom, and the furniture town struggle. On this day though, we did more that set AV rental equipment up for grand opening speeches and presentations; we were able to watch some of the hard times begin to ease for North Carolina.

Ashley Furniture is the largest furniture retailer and in the United States. Their business demanded a southeast US hob, and Advance, NC is the proud new home of both the plant and the jobs that came with it. We couldn't be more pleased for both Ashley Furniture, whose success we admire, and for Advance, NC who saw it though.

Our corporate president was pleased to receive this kind note of praise from the corporate event planner in Wisconsin who contacted us to provide the grand opening event AV on site, and we look forward to working with them again:

Hello Brad,

David did an excellent job. I was able to speak with him shortly after the event, while he was tearing down, and told him what an extraordinary event we had and the amazing job you and your team did to help create such an incredible event. You were all great to work with and very professional!

We will certainly keep you in mind for all future events. Thank you again for your hard work and helping us create an unforgettable moment in Ashley Furniture’s history!

Best Regards,
