Audiovisual and speaker meeting components are a growing challenge for planners in our tech-savvy, entertainment-demanding age. Besides logistical concerns, meeting planners need to know what features to include in their contracts and how to successfully negotiate a variety of provider options.

Founder and owner of Strategic Meeting Tech, meetings industry veteran and AV expert Jon Trask, will detail what you need to know regarding contracting and with AV and speakers, as well as how to understand different vendor models and functions.

By participating in this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • How to better understand the types of AV vendors and evaluate the best options for your event
  • Some of the questions you should ask your vendors and the questions they should ask you to provide appropriate solutions
  • How to better understand budget items that may not be listed, and how to leverage them to negotiate on gear and price
  • How to understand and fulfil speaker contract riders, along with other contract and logistics questions
