AV Connections' Raleigh NC AV rentals and production for Wake Tech at Raleigh Convention Center

AV rentals raleigh NC by AV Connetions at Raleigh Convention Center AV rentals raleigh NC by AV Connetions at Raleigh Convention Center

Hard to believe another year flew by and we are back at Raleigh Convention Center providing Raleigh NC AV rentals for the Wake Tachnical College's graduations again. We look forward to this enthusiastic and exciting event each and we've become as attached to watching each class move to the college exits as their professors. College graduation is such an important event, we want to make it perfect for each graduate. This is the last opportunity they will have to listen as a class. And the last time they will be addressed by their administrators, teachers, and classmates. No matter how many graduations and commencements have passed at which we provided commencement audio visual, they are never less moving or powerful. We're deeply aware our future sits in these chairs.

AV Connections work is to deliver the message from the podium to each attendee, though audio as well as videography work to screen flying above the Raleigh Convention Center floor which we hung the night before. It is a cavernous space and we love that challenge. Hours of set up up work are well appreciated by Wake Tech who has used AV Connections for graduation AV rentals and staging for many years. They have been great partners and we certainly want to honor their work in getting each class to commencement.

There is so much promise in these events, we well up with pride each time. No class or job is ever the same. It continues to be a pleasure to be among the last to see Wake Tech's classes assembled together for those last precious moments.

AV Connections wishes all of the members of the Class of 2014 well in every endeavor. We are proud of you, and proud to be standing by for your walk across the stage, heavier by the weight of a very important piece of paper upon reaching the other side.

Announcing the AV Connections Brand Merger, Winston-Salem and Charleston

Posted on December 18, 2013

Visual Aids Electronics of North Carolina, Inc. (VAE of NC) a premier national provider of large-scale audiovisual staging and production for conferences, meetings, and events, located in Winston-Salem, is pleased to announce a brand merger with its wholly-owned subsidiary, AV Connections, Inc.of Charleston, South Carolina.

As of January 1, 2014, Visual Aids Electronics of North Carolina, Inc. will now also be known as AV Connections, Inc.

VAE of NC opened in 1985 as a licensee of another national audiovisual concern. In 2002, the experienced owner-management group of VAE of NC opened AV Connections, Inc.of Charleston, also a premier provider of large-scale audiovisual rental and event production, under the same ownership and management. The success of the AV Connections, Inc.brand, started by Brad Luckhart (President and CEO of VAE of NC, now AV Connections, Inc.) and managed by Vice President Jared Luckhart in Charleston, has led to the decision to merge these two strong businesses under one brand name and to end the use of the VAE brand going forward.

The ownership and leadership of AV Connections, Inc. of Winston-Salem is unchanged. Brad Luckhart, in partnership with his wife, CFO Marjorie Luckhart, continues to manage both the North Carolina and South Carolina operations from the AV Connections, Inc. (formerly VAE of NC) corporate headquarters located at 245 Executive Park Boulevard. In the process of this brand merge, we are also pleased to have increased and elevated our management group with Jared Luckhart’s promotion to Vice President.

AV Connections, Inc. continues to maintain a quality-based customer service approach to the national business of audiovisual production. Clients can continue to expect the highest level of professionalism and technical experience available to them in the audiovisual production and rentals fields. AV Connections, Inc.’s trusted teams of technical professionals will continue to provide the best audiovisual event experiences throughout the southeast and across the United States, as they have for twenty-eight years.

AV Connections, Inc. is pleased to announce this brand merger and welcomes all requests for further information at 336-768-5454.
