National non-profits typically only see their stakeholders a few times in a given year. This is true for the beautiful non-profit organization Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS).
With just 2-3 national events each year, every interaction counts. When we connected, COPS had been using the in-house A/V providers associated with their venues. This created a challenge, because they intentionally relocate their event cities every two years.
They applied for and received a portion of our annual Non-Profit Sponsorship Program. We set a budget, planned the details, and met them in Chicago. We’re based in Northwest Arkansas, they’re in Missouri. They always travel to their events but had never considered traveling their A/V partner until we showed them how affordable, and how amazing it could be.
Why Travel your Production Company?
When we travel with a client, we provide consistency, and peace of mind. Two keys to lowering event planner stress levels. Take a look at their Google Review:
The COPS Conference is a multi-day event with a general session, breakouts, and special dinner. There are sponsors, donors, constituents and families who have experienced the support of COPS first-hand. We provided A/V in every room, for every session, over the course of the weekend.
How we made an impact
In the General Session we provided projectors, screens and cameras for recording. We minimized budget impact on breakouts with small, effective audio setups. For the special dinner portion we transformed the room with lighting, branding it toward their color scheme for the attendee photos that would be shared that evening on social media.
Update: Two years later, COPS and avad3 work hand-in-hand on each of their national events. Chicago led to Washington DC. We just completed a site visit giving our stamp of approval for their venue selection in upcoming Oklahoma City for another event. We couldn’t be more pleased with how the relationship has blossomed. It all began with a conversation, a non-profit sponsorship, and them listening when we said, “take us with you!”
It’s your turn!
Take us with you! Whether your event is regional or national, whether you repeat venues or move it across the country each year, we want you to experience what COPS has experienced: flawless event production.
