Technical Meeting & Event Production Certificate Course
Does your audiovisual production proposal read like a foreign language? After the venue, audio visual 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.
- Where and how to find new leads.
- How to develop winning proposals.
- How to effectively negotiate a win-win agreement.
- How to effectively close the sale.

Looking forward to a great class together!
