As an event organizer, prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) often means bringing groups of attendees, speakers, and suppliers together from different backgrounds, identities, and experiences.

Technical Meeting & Event Production
Technical Meeting & Event Production - Starts July 24

Does your audiovisual production proposal read like a foreign language? After the venue, audiovisual is often one of the largest budget items, yet so often planners are unable to make sense of a typical proposal. Do you know how many lumens your projector should have? Should you use a PAR fixture or Lekos to light the podium? Inputs, outputs, sound boards, teleprompters… admit it, you’ve glazed over the details on occasion and handed it off to the “tech team” to manage.

Producing events can be a fine art, especially when it comes to gatherings that involve a stage, lectern, and presentations requiring the coordination of audiovisual production, lighting, speakers and many other components. This course will empower you to understand what kind of gear, staff, and set up your event actually needs to function properly, look right, and be cost-effective.
