Once you’ve taken your seat at a conference or meeting, the projection just needs to work and the message, educational or sales related, just needs to be delivered – AV Connections conference rentals Charleston SC makes the screen and sound magic happen. Today, we’re taking you inside the AV booths at some of our recent Charleston conferences and events. There is a great deal going on behind the scenes of any full scale conference presentation. For that reason, most of our conference events are “teched” or manned by members of our Conference Technology team.

After you see the amount of technology which must be managed to keep two or three projection screens broadcasting and the lighting up and changing on ques, you’ll have new respect for those mysterious team members whose job it is to propel the presentations forward from a perch behind the goings on.

It is not uncommon that AV Connections technicians be required to watch five screens and man sound boards at once. There will likely also be a video camera in the booth with them to be managed. It is something of an orchestra to see it in motion, for it to be a seamless presentation, all the elements need to work together well. AV Connections is committed to planning and training. Members of our Charleston event technology rentals group are the finest in the industry with more than fifty years combined experience. As technology moves forward, AV Connections’ training must as well. We don’t believe in surprises, we’ll go the extra ten miles to be sure every imaginable piece of equipment is there and has a back-up. We will always have a contingency plan. If we don’t see the set up we’ll need, we’ll built it. That is how AV Connections became Charleston, SC’s most trusted conference rental supplier.

Lighting and Audiovisual at the Memminger, Galliard for Winter Antiques

Posted on May 15, 2015

For the third year, AV Connections of Charleston has provided lighting and audiovisual at the Memminger, Galliard auditorium for the annual Charleston Winter Antiques Show. This incredible event, which brings together the finest collectors and dealers in the world – and is a fine competitor for the equally famous New York Winter Antiques Show – is, we think the best choice of the two. In Charleston, you won’t be slipping on ice getting to and from the venues. And Charleston boasts the acclaim of being the number one city in the world for visitor travel for the fifth year in a row, according to Conde Nast.

The Charleston Antiques Show has been held at the Memminger Auditorium for the past three consecutive years. AV Connections has been pleased to be the provider of event lighting and audiovisual at the Memminger, Galliard for several years for this Historic Charleston Foundation show. When the historic Galliard Auditorium’s $120 million dollar and three year long renovation began, the Antiques Show was moved south on Charleston’s peninsula to the Memminger Auditorium. It is anticipated that once the Galliard reopens in October, 2015, the Antiques Show will return to its original venue.

AV Connections provides lighting and audiovisual at the Memminger, Galliard for all manner of events. We are pleased to be event lighting, AV, and draping vendor to such incredible Charleston events as the American Heart Association Heart Gala, the annual Chase After A Cure Gala and dozens more inside this newly renovated facility. If you are planning a conference or event in Charleston, we are pleased to walk through the Memminger or Galliard Auditoriums with you and begin planning the lighting and AV rentals for your Charleston event.

Competitive hotel AV rentals Charleston SC from AV Connections

Posted on May 2, 2015

Hotel AV rentals Charleston SC

In our research into creating the most competitive hotel AV rentals Charleston SC, we discovered a website which promised to rent you AV equipment in Charleston, SC, but they are a company located in the Mid-West and their office address in the Carolina’s is located in a UPS store. A UPS store seems a bit small to store AV rental equipment. And worse, that office is in Charlotte, NC four hours from Charleston, SC. Seems like a formula for Charleston convention AV rental disaster.

AV Connections is located – with offices and warehouses –  in both Charleston, SC and Winston-Salem, NC. We service North Carolina and South Carolina AV rentals from our actual brick and mortar business locations. You can come and visit us! We love visitors.
