PRESENTATION TOPIC: AV Demystified: How To Get The Impact You Want For Roughly The Budget You Have


Michael has entered his 25th year working in the AV & Events industry. With a career that began in technical operating and show delivery, technology and production has been a constant in Michael’s working life.  

Michael was appointed to the role of AV & Production Services Manager at the BCEC in 2016, a team comprised of 23 fulltime staff and over 60 casual team members across each sub department of Vision, Audio, Lighting & Rigging.

The BCEC AVPS team strives to deliver the very best technology experience for our clients, delegates and guests. Our team have a focus on innovative ideas that amplify the overall customer experience at our venue. 

Session Overview

Audiences have ever-increasing expectations of production values. How do you deliver events that look the goods, keep all the stakeholders and presenters happy, and keep the budget manageable? Where is technology going in 2019? Our panel will take some of the mystery out of those quotes and proposals, and they will NOT bore you senseless with tech talk about projectors and speakers.

Three key takeaways for Ian, John, Toni and Michael’s presentation

  • What technology is essential vs nice to have in 2019
  • How to get better value out of your AV budget
  • How to make your shows stand out from the everyday event
