UPDATED FOR 2021, including budgets, benefits and technology concerns for hybrid events and managing remote presenters!
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.

The Event Leadership Institute recognizes that planners are under a tremendous amount of pressure to get their events online as quickly as possible. To help address this need, ELI is including live scheduled online class meetings with the instructor and other learners registered in the course. In these live class meetings, you’ll have the opportunity to join instructor Brandt Krueger, as he chats with industry experts who’ve already successfully brought their meetings online, platform vendors, and other technical production experts, as well as ask any pressing questions that you have. Additionally, the course includes a community forum where you can ask questions, exchange ideas, and communicate with other learners to support each other during this challenging time . Don’t just take your meetings online, take them to the next level!

"“A knowledge of audio visual and lighting is critical to event producers as these elements highlight content, help to create an immersive environment and set the tempo and attitude of the overall event.”"
"“Learning and mastering audio visual and other technical event elements has been absolutely instrumental in my career growth, from office manager to co-owner of my own firm. It helped separate me from my peers and gave me the ability to take on more complex projects.”"
