Gala Audio Rentals in Winston Salem at the Reynolda House Museum and Gardens

Posted on October 14, 2015

Audio Rentals in Winston Salem

Doesn't this gala look fantastic; we were thrilled to provide audio rentals in Winston Salem, NC for this recent affair at the legendary Reynolda House Museum and Gardens.

One of the finest historic sites in this part of North Carolina in which our corporate headquarters resides and where we were founded, the Reynolda House, is a tribute to the great builders and landscapers of the Guilded Age. Preserved largely through the efforts of events like these held yearly by the Reynolda House Foundation, one of the great eras in American structural history is stewarded and protected.

Once the home of Richard Joshua Reynolds (founder of RJ Reynolds, the local tobacco concern) and his wife, the Reynolda House was inherited by a daughter who first held the home as a vacation home and later took up residence full time. Loving the house as her decendents did, they undertook - under the guidance of granddaughter Barbara Babcock Millhouse - to create a foundation for the lasting preservation of the home and site, and the Reynolda House Foundation was born.

The site, largely still intact as originally constructed and completed in 1917 became a public museum in 1967. A viewing museum which now houses extraordinary works by American artists was additionally built on the grounds. The permanent collection houses some of the nation's finest works of art by preeminent hands. Revolving visiting collections are also part of the work of the museum. Regular visits to the collection will make you well versed in the great works of our national artists; once a year is not enough.

The gala you see here supports the efforts of the House to both sustain the house and landscape formal and informal gardens and to continue to broaden the museum collection and add revolving exhibits. AV Connections, Inc. was pleased to provide audio rentals for this years gala.

AV rentals in Greensboro

One of our best local meeting venues was back in action with our AV rentals in Greensboro at the Greensboro Marriott. Our presentation technology team was glad to provide rentals and technicians for the recent Guilford Child Development Luncheon in Greensboro, NC near our corporate hometown, Winston-Salem, NC.

AV Connections, Inc.'s President and CEO Brad Luckhart was pleased to receive this kind note from our meeting client on this day. We are always actively pursuing feedback after audiovisual rental jobs; part of our culture of excellence - and we are heartened our hard work behind the scenes pays off when our team members are recognized for their commitment. In this case, Trent and Kent, technical team members, were as always, star team players for this customer. The meeting planner noted so below with our great thanks:

Brad,

Trent and Kent were absolutely fantastic! I am very pleased with their work, and grateful to Ron Platt for recommending your company for this task. Trent and Kent are a tribute to you and your company. THANK YOU!

With regard to the mission of the charity holding this luncheon, it is also important to note how critical their role in supporting the children of Guildford County, North Carolina is on a daily basis. Guilford Child Development is a multi-faceted organization dedicated to creating an community where children are valued, nurtured, and fed. Perhaps it is easy for many of us, blessed as we are, to take for granted healthy hot meals and people with whom to read a book, but the need for caring for economically challenged children is real and with a moment of all our homes. Resources, medicine, food, literacy, and head start for success are all the tenets pursued by GDC. We remain grateful and moved by their work which is both vast and robust on behalf of the young lives in the care of this community.

North Carolina lighting rentals by AV Connections

Posted on March 08, 2015

 

IMG_0009

 

Our North Carolina lighting rentals change the face of an event or party. While lighting is critical at night for any type of gathering, it is not to be underestimated at any time of day. Many North Carolina lighting rentals clients use strings of cafe bulb lighting or indoor colored-gel uplighting to define the perimeters of an event space or to add a festive atmosphere indoors.

At this beach-side wedding, the couple's vows were said toward the dusk time of day.  For that event we were happy to provide audiovisual rentals for their guests to best hear and witness their vows. When the reception moved to the house, it was still day light. But, the lighting design helped to create a party atmosphere while the sun was still up and turn it into a twinkling fete by nightfall.

North Carolina lighting rentals

Our North Carolina lighting rentals designers are always pleased to create an individual and site-appropriate lighting design for your conference, meeting, or event. Let's be in touch today.

AV in western NC: We're back at Meadowbrook

Posted on February 25, 2015

av in western NC

We are also pleased when our business takes us back to Blowing Rock NC to provide av in western NC. Western North Carolina, which is not far from our home office and where our company was founded in Winston-Salem, NC is one of our favorite yearly stops in our conference rotation. AV Connections, Inc. has enjoyed the same return clients for conference AV year after year. We get back to Blowing Rock twice a year at least and it's with great pleasure that we get to work with the team at Meadowbrook Inn and Conference Center.

This month we returned to provide av in western NC for a regional nursing conference held jointly by Wake Forest University Health and it's affiliated partners. This year, the conference was so well attended we also set up AV in overflow rooms in order to make room for all of the conference attendees. These small rooms and audiovisual delivered to them is both necessary and appreciated; it makes a comfortable place to absorb information. It is far preferable to asking too many people to try to take notes elbow to elbow in a packed conference room. If you want to be as well attended next year, this courtesy is an important one. Especially when conference guests have to spend an entire day listening, this helps with concentration and patience.

All together another great year with NWAHEC's conference. We look forward to creating another effective conference for them next year.

The venue is not just a conference hub but also a great place to spend a weekend when you visit western North Carolina.

This particular conference was a medical conference on respiratory care hosted by Northwest Area Health Education Center. NAHEC is affiliated with both University of North Carolina and Wake Forest University.

We were also so proud Trent Perry, our senior manager in North Carolina was able to lend support to the conference planner again this year. She wrote to us, "As always Trent did a wonderful job! His ability to take care of all AV needs makes my job at the conference a little easier." This level of go-the-extra-step customer service is what we ware always striving for at AV Connections, Inc. We look forward to seeing these clients next year!
