For the last 15 years Avista has grown to be a premier California-based provider of audio visual equipment rentals and AV production services. We are proud of the many businesses, nonprofit and consumers we have served, and the over 20,000 meetings and events that we have supported.

Our Story

Man pushing cart with AV equipment.

Our History

Avista was founded in 2005, focusing on the needs of consumers and the small AV production market. We quickly grew from there, bringing in seasoned audio and video technicians as our capabilities grew to include large scale productions. Today we have more than 25 employees in four offices throughout California.

Our Focus

At Avista we constantly remind ourselves that each event is vitally important to you, our customer. And it's our responsibility to treat it with the same passion, attention to detail, and flawless execution as you do. More than anything, It's that drive and ownership of the customer experience that we attribute to our success.
