Working for You

Your Board of Directors’ is currently getting the final touches on the RFP for a PR/Lobby Firm to guide us in our next steps of engaging federal and provincial governments.  We will continue to update you on the progress of this initiative in the early fall once we have the new firm on board.

Our Goals

Engage – with Governments, event planners, hotel & conference facilities and the public on the benefits and value provided by Canadian-owned audio visual companies. We promote recognition of the audio visual and event technology industry as a critical supply chain service provider supporting many other key sectors.

Educate – event planners, government, and other stakeholders:

  • on the importance of our industry and its positive contribution in creating exciting, memorable and impactful live events of all types
  • on the economic and employment contribution made by Canadian audio visual companies
  • on the many benefits of using Canadian-owned audio visual companies
  • on the options available to event planners when booking venues, so they can have freedom of choice in audio visual vendors without financial penalties from the facility

Advocate – with Provincial and Federal Governments on issues of importance to our members

Protect  ensure Canadian-owned audio visual businesses have a fair opportunity to provide their services at events and venues across the country. We challenge monopolistic practices that harm the competitiveness and viability of Canadian owned audio visual companies


Have a wonderful summer!
