(Long Beach, CA) On July 11th, I had an event which Avista who supplied our audio, production screen and projector. When I walked in the room at the InterContinental Hotel, I was so amazed of the clarity and professionalism that Avista offered. A month prior I explained to them what I needed for our event and they spelled everything out in detail. Expedited all my demands to close the deal. This was a match made in heaven, we will use this company for all or future events.  I loved it! Our event was Awesome, thanks to Avista!

(San Francisco, CA) - Our running group uses Avista every year for the sound systems at our annual charity 5k/10k race.  Each time we use them we really appreciate the professional service and high degree of efficiency they bring to processing our order.  The equipment always works and if there are any problems someone is available to help us at any hour.  They're a great firm.

(Colorado Springs, CO) Avista was very helpful for our U.S. Figure Skating event.  We came in from out of town for a fundraiser and Avista was able to set up and break down the AV equipment with no hassle on our side.  We were very pleased and will use them again for future events in the Bay Area.

(Pittsburg, CA) I rented equipment for an outdoor movie for my birthday. The instructions for the set up were very simple and they explained it all to me beforehand and tested out the equipment to make sure there were no issues. Plus you can text them any time if you have a problem. I didn't need it, but that's nice to have. The price was reasonable as well. I'd definitely rent from them again.
