The Benefits of Outsourcing Your Audiovisual Requirements for Your Next Event

Are you planning a corporate event and would like to put on a show to remember? Then you’re going to need an awesome AV team to assist you with it. It can be difficult finding the right staff who are adequately qualified without paying an arm and a leg for it. However, when done correctly, through an event staffing agency, you can indeed find the most qualified technicians for less.  

In this article, we’re going to look at the clear benefits that come from outsourcing your requirements to a third-party recruitment / temporary staffing agency, such as First Class Crew.  

Building strong relationships  

If you’re hosting an event now, it’s likely that you’ll be hosting more in the future, particularly if this one goes incredibly well. This is why it is important to build strong relationships with companies and temp staffing agencies that you’ll wish to rely on in the future. The benefits of outsourcing for your AV requirements is that you’ll be working with people that you can trust. Once you’ve used them, the next time round the process will be even smoother than before!  

It’s cheaper  

Outsourcing is most definitely the cheaper option, as temporary staffing agencies will have few overheads than a venue with an in-house team. Therefor, you’ll have much more room for negotiation, finding the best possible price for you. Events are expensive enough as it is, without having to worry about setting aside a huge slice of your budget for AV technicians.  

State-of-the-art equipment  

A dedicated temporary staffing agency that specialise in audiovisual are going to be kitted out with the latest equipment. This means that you can only benefit from it, having a qualified crew that no exactly how to use the equipment, given that it will be their own, and they’ll be using it all the time.

Flexible and experienced technicians  

Bear in mind that when you use a venue’s in-house AV team, they will only be working in the same space. Whilst this is good in that they will understand their venue incredibly well; they won’t have so much flexibility or experience outside of that. An av-team through a temp agency on the other-hand, will be working in different venues all of the time. This gives them a significant competitive edge over the rest, being able to adapt, think faster on their feet and ultimately display a more creative flare with their process.  

Dedicated to you  

Your AV team with be dedicated to your event and will do everything in their power to ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible. They will be representing their company, and so will want to do their utmost to maintain and preserve their reputation.
