As a sponsor, the most important outcome of an event is to receive maximum visibility. This seems like a no-brainer, but it can be challenging finding ways to change up the traditional branding tactics to something that physically engages your audience.
Events have been back in full swing for well over a year, but for many events the attendee composition has changed. In addition to the few devoted individuals that come year after year, there’s an entirely new constituency that has joined your industry or organization in the last few years. How do you keep these new members engaged?
You may already be familiar with the incredible event experiences we’ve produced with our clients across the United States, but did you know our LAI Live team also partners with groups on their overseas events? We recently supported one of our clients in Edinburgh, Scotland, to bring the same collaboration, expertise, and quality they expect for their U.S. events and produce an outstanding international event.
Q: What’s the difference between an AV Company and LAI Live?
A: LAI Live designs, produces, and manages events from start to finish. The event producer and creative team take a hands-on approach to deliver full-service client experiences encompassing program development, graphic design, scripting, production management, audio-visual logistics, scenic design, animation and video production, talent management, plus lead all onsite logistics and execution.
With an AV company, you’re responsible for managing all the above elements and often get little support, creative input, or preproduction communications from your AV lead. Onsite, you’re responsible for handling the talent and handing off your run of show in hopes that it’s executed the way you’ve envisioned with few hiccups.
Q: Do you have recommendations for RFP must-haves?
A: YES! Be honest about your budget, include a note about the audience and event vibe, share your most up-to-date conference schedule or a similar one from years past, provide a high level overview of what equipment beyond a traditional set-up your production requires in key spaces (four-cameras in GS, mics for 6-person panels in education sessions, teleprompter), and what other services you may need like creative design, video content, and speakers.

Q: Does LAI Live work nationally and internationally?
A: Yes! Our team regularly works nationwide with our full scope of services. Internationally, our team provides all services except our team works on your behalf to source local AV equipment and labor that’s necessary for the show. As with nationwide shows, your LAI Live Producer will be there during load-in to oversee the build and to run technical rehearsals.
Q: Can I use LAI Live’s Producers if I’m using in-house AV?
A: Absolutely! While LAI provides scenic design and industry-elite AV equipment and technicians, our Producers can also work with in-house AV or your preferred AV company. Our Producers, Designers, and Stage Managers can work anywhere you need us which allows for flexibility in your budget and event locations while keeping the consistency of a Producing team that you and your key event contributors will come to know and trust.
