Following the rise and fall of various event formats in recent years, due in large part to the pandemic, event organisers would need to count on suppliers for proper AV equipment regardless if the event is face-to-face, virtual or hybrid.
When attendees are becoming smarter and would want to “experience” the best events, it comes as no surprise that you would need to invest in this aspect of event management. For face-to-face events, such as in exhibitions, you may need to look into experiential marketing and come up with immersive setups that are meant to stimulate the senses of attendees.
At Eventscase, we have worked with various suppliers, especially in the UK and Spain. Some of our recommendations below had personal dealings with Eventscase when we organised both virtual and face-to-face events. They specialise in renting out AV equipment, designing stages, and providing tech and logistical support, among many others.
