Furniture Design Conference at Dogpatch Studios

Conference being held at Dogpatch Studios


The Furniture Society held its annual 3-day conference at the Dogpatch Studios in San Francisco, CA 2 weeks ago. The conference brought together some of the top furniture builders in the country and internationally, for an exciting mix of showcases, education, commerce and community building.

While not a technically complex show from an audio visual standpoint, it had a large number of speakers, spread out over a general session and 2 breakout rooms. Avista brought in sound, projection, lighting, video IMAG to the event. The client was also working with a tight budget, and Avista was able to innovate and create an event that had a highly professional fit and finish, while at the same time meeting budgetary constraints.

Our engagement with the client began weeks before the event started, helping them collect and organize powerpoint and keynote presentations. We worked closely with their events team to ensure that presentations were organized in a way that didn’t require a lot of video technician oversight.

The end result - a highly satisfied client, and happy attendees! In the words of Brigitte Martin, the Director of the Furniture Society:

We worked with Doug and his team in June 2018 when he provided us with absolutely stellar A/V service for a three-day conference. What impressed us from the start was that Doug truly listened to what our needs were both with regard to A/V capabilities as well as budget restraints. He gave us a fair and thorough estimate and did not exceed it at the end when it came to billing. Doug respond promptly and courteously to all our inquiries and requests - and there were many - and we felt well taken care of at all times. Working on-site with Doug was great too and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a GREAT A/V team that knows what it is they are doing. When you look up the word "professionalism" in the dictionary, there's a photo of AVISTA AUDIO VISUAL RENTALS. Highly recommend!!! Many thanks.
