Get the shocking truth about hotel av and how to save 60% on your next event

Tips to Get Better

and more Cost Effective service for hotel conferences

Before you sign the venue contract look for high percentage charges for bringing your own AV provider.
TRUTH: Hotels make 40 - 60% off in-house AV revenues. This means the resident AV companies must raise their rates to maintain profit margins.
  • Look for charges related to WiFi, LAN and power.
  • The venue wants your business and will work with you. Negotiating these fees out of the contract is typical.
  • Limit competition clauses that equate to diminished service and value.
  • Get better leverage by simply striking out these clauses, and protect your right to great service and quality.
  • LPAV services are never subject to the 25% hotel service charge!
PRO TIP: You have the leverage to negotiate.
Start the contract negotiation process early, waiting can cost you!
TRUTH: Hotel in-house AV serves the hotel, then the client… Shouldn’t the client be #1?
  • Hotel AV support is shared with any other events happening on the property at the same time.
  • It's your event, and chances are you have a bit on the line, shouldn't you decide who is on your team?
  • When you bring in your own AV company, their techs are dedicated solely to your event.
TRUTH: Shopping around for a great AV company can save you big bucks and headaches.
  • Get at least 3 quotes from highly rated AV event services companies.
  • Find out if they have testimonials, reviews, references.
  • Find out if they provide a 3D visual (mock up) of your event during planning.

Here are a couple key questions you should ask your AV bidders:

  • "How quickly can you respond to additional equipment needs?
  • Who is the on-site dedicated project/conference manager?

Once your AV agreement has been reached, connect with the venue and let them know who you chose.

p.s. Lucas Productions has over 60 5-star rated client reviews. No other company in Florida comes close!

TRUTH: OOPS! Already sign a contract? Here are things you can do.
  • Remember, it's all negotiable. Venue wants your business.
  • There may be small fees assessed in bringing AV… We have seen these fees eliminated 90% of the time.
  • Let the Hotel know your AV Company handles all your events…
  • Remember the mandatory service fee charged by the hotel, up to 25%, will not be applied to your bill from YOUR av vendor.
