Hiring the right AV company can be a make-or-break decision for any event. The Expressive Structures team has an impeccable track record when it comes to finding solutions to difficult problems, and we want you (our client) to experience success rather than frustration!

So let us help by doing all your research upfront; ensuring you hire an AV company that is suited to your needs. Planning ahead is key in ensuring nothing goes wrong during installation as well as during the event itself. Unfortunate situations can happen and are the reason it is important to do your homework before committing to an AV company.

Similar to scenic design, this is a specialty field and requires experience and skill. Expressive Structures has worked side by side with many AV companies over the years and our team has compiled a list to aid our client base in the event planning process. In no particular order, here is our list of the top 5 audio visual companies for corporate events.







AV Companies Who Work On Corporate Events

The following AV companies have gained a certain level of admiration from our team. Due in large part, to their attention to detail when it comes to the quality of sound and visuals. The production required to bring an event about properly takes a certain finesse for operations to run smoothly. From planning to staging to event management, here are five AV companies who, from our personal experiences, have that finesse.

1.      Signature Productions

Located in Saint Charles, IL, Signature Productions specializes in live, virtual and hybrid corporate event productions. Expressive Structures has worked with Signature Productions many times and can attest to their level of skill, experience, and creativity. Serving clientele globally and offering services such as event technology, virtual and hybrid event productions, and LED Studio/ XR Stage productions, this is certainly the AV company to call when you have a lot on the line and will be mixing signals from around the planet. If you are on the hunt for an AV company, Signature Productions is sure to be a top contender.

2.      Rillahan and Associates

Rillahan and Associates have been around since 1987 with a corporate office in Bedford, NH, and warehouses located in MA and CA. With a dedicated staff and loads of experience, this is an AV company capable of handling an event production of any size.  Offering a large range of services including technical production/stage management, audio/video/lighting design, stage/set design, opening/closing shows, and video editing/production. This AV company is full-service event management across multiple industries all over the country. No matter where your venue is located or what type of event you are planning for (meetings, product launches, road shows, etc.) Rillahan and Associates is a top-tier choice for your AV needs.

3.      Atlas Productions

Located in Raleigh, NC, Atlas Production Group was founded in 2003, so they have certainly experienced their fair share of event productions. “Seamless Event Production For All Clients” is rightfully their core value. Offering services including high-tech audio and visual components, camera and stage direction, multi-media presentations, cutting-edge lighting system packages, and complete rigging services. Atlas Productions is certainly a contender in the world of AV and a great and reliable choice for your next event.

4.      Vario Productions

Located in San Diego, CA but serving clientele on a global scale, Vario has been in business since 2015. The owners of Vario however, are equipped with over 20 years of experience in the industry. Vario offers a myriad of services from event production (AV, lighting, management, etc.) to event creative (branding, graphic design, etc.) to event strategy (concept creation, design, etc.). Our team at Expressive Structures has first-hand experience working with the professionals at Vario and are glad to recommend them to any client in need.

5.      Encore Global

Located in Schiller Park, IL, Encore Global (previously PSAV) stands out amongst the rest for a very specific reason. Unlike the others, this Audio Visual company is an in-house alternative whose services vary depending on the venue location and size. Encore works your event in teams so prices will be higher than the latter, especially if you are throwing a more “out of the box” event as they have contract obligations at each property. Nonetheless, the teams at Encore do a fantastic job and are a force to be reckoned with, offering in-person, hybrid, and virtual services in at least 20 countries. They have been around for many years and are truly a global option for any event! And because they are an in-house option this can be advantageous for the right meetings and events or properties with challenging locations or complex labor requirements.
