AV 24/7 launches new event group

Staging and audio-visual company AV 24/7 has launched a new group of companies to service the changing needs of the events industry.

AV 24/7 co-owners Libbie Ray and Juston Prisuda have created four separate brands under the Connected Event Group.

“As soon as the events industry was shut down in March, we challenged ourselves to think differently about what our clients needed most and in their times of greatest need,” Ray said.

“We did not stop and wait for the world to go back to ‘normal’. With our talented team we evolved, we innovated, we embraced ‘disruption’ and turned it into an opportunity.

“With 20 years’ experience running AV 24/7 in the face-to-face events world, and now with a deep understanding of virtual and hybrid challenges, we have brought all our expertise, people and services together in Connected Event Group.”

The new Connected Event Group comprises AV 24/7 for traditional AV services and staging strategy and delivery; Digital Events for hybrid and virtual services and customised strategy and content; Connected Studios which comprises three purpose-built studios in Sydney and Melbourne for recording and online broadcast, pop-up and remote location studios; and Virtual Event Box which offers on location delivery of branded boxes and experiences.

“From strategy to delivery, we have the event conception and design expertise to know what works to ignite human connection, engagement and interaction. And that’s what our clients want,” said Prisuda.

“The new reality is that event organisers are now more open to change and I’m pleased we have been able to step-up and invest in driving innovation in event design and delivery.”
