Daring Greatly

CEAVCO Audio Visual Virtual Event Studio Collaboration

In a 1910 speech known as “The Man in the Arena,” Teddy Roosevelt praised those who were trying to make the world a better place.

“It is not the critic who counts,” he said, “not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly …”

The live events industry has essentially been shuttered since March 2020, and evolving our business model has been no easy feat. For our part, we at CEAVCO are standing in the arena as a team and drawing inspiration from one another. We’re listening and learning, sometimes erring, and always striving to do better. Every day we’re pushing boundaries and barriers to create exceptional virtual and hybrid event experiences for our clients. Hard work, tenacity, and a desire to do the right thing are getting us where we want to go. Together, we’re facing challenges head on and daring greatly.

How to Shift from Live to Virtual Events

CEAVCO Audio Visual Virtual Event Studio

Your meeting or event is coming up, and you have to decide whether it can continue in-person or if it will need to be cancelled, be postponed, or go virtual. Start with these questions:

  • Will your attendees be missing out if you postpone or cancel? Is now the right time to build a virtual or hybrid event strategy?
  • What audio, video, and lighting technology and digital tools should you use to give your event a professional look and feel?
  • What extra steps can you take to reinforce your credibility and keep attendees tuned in?

Answering these questions can prove challenging. We can help you understand what’s possible based on your goals, expectations, and budget. Take an online tour of our virtual event management platform or set up an in-person or virtual tour of our new studio (it’s so popular that we’re building a second one). Or let us know what equipment you’d like to rent from our $6M inventory.

We’re collaborating with businesses, nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities, and performing arts centers to live stream classes, workshops, performances, presentations, panel discussions, and breakout sessions. Together, we can create an exceptional virtual, in-person or hybrid event experience that goes off without a hitch. Better yet, we can make sure your audience loves what they see and hear.

College and University Audiovisual Equipment Rentals and Support

CEAVCO College and University Audiovisual Equipment Rentals and Support

Throughout Colorado and Wyoming, college courses are being offered in a variety of in-person, online, and hybrid versions.

With a strong preference for in-person learning, one university in Colorado is taking advantage of CEAVCO’s $5.8 million in audiovisual equipment inventory to use unconventional spaces for classrooms. With CEAVCO’s help, this client has turned large common-area spaces throughout the campus into classrooms configured for appropriate social distancing, something not possible in a traditional classroom.

Do you need video, audio, and lighting equipment so you can safely bring together your group or live stream classes, workshops, performances, presentations, panel discussions, or breakout sessions? Reach out! solutions@ceavco.com

Exceptional Experiences Don’t Happen by Accident

Your video must be of the highest quality, and your audio must be crisp and clear. Your lighting has to direct the audience’s focus and interest, and tightly timed editing must engage the audience at every turn. You won’t settle for anything less than an exceptional experience.

If that sounds like you, then we’re a good fit for each other.

The truth is that an exceptional experience doesn’t happen by accident. It takes a professional behind-the-scenes team to enable the magic that unfolds onstage. That team must have a commitment to excellence and a reputation for supporting successful meetings and events, town halls and keynote speeches, and performances and panel discussions. They must know all the ins and outs of how to produce and support live, virtual, and hybrid events. And they must work from a world-class studio.

If you’re ready to see what’s possible, reach out to take a virtual tour of our new studio and our online event management platform. We think you will love what you see and hear! solutions@ceavco.com
