AV Technician

Lower AV Costs
"Instead of paying very expensive hourly rates for an AV technician during full conference days, negotiate for one hour of set up assistance at the beginning of each day and set up each room being utilized that day. I saved a lot of money using this strategy during my last conference and even negotiated the hour for slightly less than their going rate."

Master Keys

Request a Master Key 
"From the hotel, request a key that is coded to open all your meeting and hospitality rooms. This will allow you to access them when needed, without locating hotel staff, such as during non-meeting hours when you many need to set-up something or place items."
