The Story Behind Our Event Services Production Company

jack and matt Emerson

When Jack Emerson founded Denver-based CEAVCO in 1961, he aimed to build a great workplace and provide outstanding customer service. He developed a lifelong reputation for doing the right thing. He was immensely proud of his company and his team.

Jack hired his son Matt Emerson as the VP of Finance in 1989. He was the company’s 15th employee. Back then, CEAVCO sold AV equipment and had a two-person rental department. In 2003, Matt became CEAVCO’s executive vice president; in 2013 he was named president.

Meanwhile, in 1981, Murray Lapides founded Media 1, Inc., (now AVFX) to meet the increasing demand for high-quality audio visual and staging services. From the start, Boston-based AVFX built a reputation for collaborating closely with clients to help them achieve their goals.

Murray’s foresight made AVFX first-to-market with many event technologies that have since been widely adopted. For example, AVFX was one of the first U.S. companies to use technologies like projection mapping and large-scale LED tile displays to engage audiences.

In 2021, Matt was named AVFX CEO. As of January 2024, CEAVCO has been integrated into the AVFX brand.

Says Matt, “Jack grew the company he loved for 52 years, and for the past 30+ years I’ve had a rewarding career that I love. AVFX has a great workplace, a great team, and great clients and partners. I honestly couldn’t ask for more, and I can’t wait to see what the future will bring!”

What the Future Holds for Us and for You

In 2021, Boston-based AVFX acquired Denver-based CEAVCO. This acquisition combined two powerful event technology companies into one cohesive business, enabling both companies to expand their geographic footprint and better serve clients across the country. In the future, AVFX plans to continue to grow its family of companies to better serve its clients across the U.S.

AVFX has always been client focused. The company has built a reputation for listening to clients, striving to understand the goals clients want to achieve, and delivering the results they seek. Like AVFX founder Murray Lapides, AVFX CEO Matt Emerson has a passion for teamwork, transparency, and trust. Everyone at our company honors the spirit of service upon which the company was built.

AVFX will continue to deliver the high-quality support that our many long-term clients have come to expect over the past six decades. Today, as always, our clients love what they see and hear.
