• Planners, You’ll Want to Take Note of This New Partnership

    POSTED January 3, 2017

Hello readers,

Happy New Year! All of us at Illinois Meetings + Events want to wish you a happy, fruitful 2017 with many successful projects to come. We look forward to continuing to provide you with all the latest info about our local industry, including this news item.

Two companies are already off to a great start this year with a unique partnership that may benefit your meetings and events in the months ahead. In late December, longtime audio-visual provider AV Chicago announced they have teamed up with Insane Impact to now offer high-quality LED video screens.

One of the great features of these LED screens is that they are mobile and mounted on engineered lifts, which allows the use of larger “jumbotron” screens in smaller spaces. Screen pixels also range from 2.5mm for indoor events to 6mm for outdoor events. One of their long-term clients has been the Chicago Marathon.

This partnership promises to offer “Chicago’s most unique mobile experiential branding and customer engagement at corporate events, concerts, sporting venues, fairs and festivals.” For more information, or to set up a rental, visit AV Chicago’s website.

Happy Planning!
