Webinar: Florida State Contract for AV Equipment

The discontinuation of the Florida State Contract for Audio Visual Equipment and Accessories has created confusion for our state agency customers in Florida. This page is intended to clear up that confusion and offer alternative contract sources, including our GSA Schedules and other cooperative contract vehicles.

Here’s the main message of that page: AVI-SPL was not removed as a vendor. Rather, the contract vehicle itself expired, meaning State of Florida public sector purchasers must find new ways of engaging with us and other suppliers. AVI-SPL is still a provider for Florida’s AV and video services and solutions.

As part of our effort to answer questions surrounding the discontinuation of the contract, we are hosting a webinar on Wed., November 8 at 12 p.m. EST, “Purchasing AV Equipment and Services From AVI-SPL — State of Florida Buyers.”
