What is AV?

AV is a term that people use to refer to Audio Visual. When people discuss AV equipment, they are referring to anything that can artificially playback and/or record sources of sound and moving images. In that way, pretty much everything can nowadays be considered AV equipment, this thanks to the development of both the Internet services and the receiving devices.

Understandably though, many professionals on the AV industry likes strong kinds of equipment, like television or film cameras, computers with more processing power for editing, etc.

What is the best way to take audiovisual equipment rental for a meeting at a hotel?

The most convenient way is to agree to these costs as part of your overall hotel contract. Several hotels try to include restrictions on using outside AV companies because the ‘in-house AV company” pays them a considerable commission. You can probably get better pricing and much better service from an outside AV company but we would recommend getting an initial quote for the hotel’s in-house company for comparison. If you can give them an exact list of your equipment and labor needs, you can easily compare it to an outside quote (consider using a consultant to create an RFP). If you are ready to share the quote, you can often get reduced pricing, but be aware that the in-house staff may be supporting many other clients at the hotel at the same time as your event.
