One thing about our job in general, and specifically in providing AV at Raleigh Convention Center, is that there are a lot of really exciting events and personalities swinging through our professional days. We've provided audiovisual and lighting for thousands of speakers in our thirty-two years in business in the Carolinas. Among them, Supreme Court Justices, presidential candidates, and celebrities. This year at the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association Expo and Dinner was another of those fun occasions when a celebrity is on our AV and microphones delivering the key note address. But we'll come back to that in a minute.
Before that can happen however, this needs to become....
If you're thinking that turning a stark ballroom into a vibrant and visually appealing presentation space is a major production, you would be right. But as you can tell from the stunning results, it is obviously worth it to have great audiovisual and lighting and make an impactful event. Quality events presented with care and attention to detail create pleased Expo visitors and returning guests next year. As any conference or expo planner will attest, the goal is to increase attendance at your conference or event the following year. In order to achieve ever-growing numbers of attendees, an event need to have a marquee speaker.
That is where this gentleman comes in:
That's right. Robert Irvine of Food Networks's show Restaurant Impossible was the key note speaker for the NCRLA banquet and AV Connections, Inc. was pleased to welcome him to our microphones! All in all a great expo banquet with a draw for the crowd and an assurance they will want to look into who next year's guest will be because this one was great.
We had a great time working with the NCRLA and, as always, with the organization at Raleigh Convention Center. We look forward to providing incredible AV for Raleigh Convention Center and your next event there.
