Meeting Planner Deep Dives with CEAVCO – Unconventional Spaces

In this entertaining deep dive video, Eric Newkirk, Vice President of Design and Creative at CEAVCO Audio Visual, describes the benefits of holding some events in unconventional spaces such as airplane hangers, museums, mountaintop ski lodges, warehouses, and outside tents. He suggests using the space to your advantage – instead of covering up the space, embrace quirks and make the space a conversation piece.

As Eric also explains, events held in unconventional spaces often have greater attendee engagement and excitement. And unconventional spaces don’t have to be risky or costly, especially when you choose an audio visual production partner experienced in turning traditional events into something exciting and new.
