How This Control Room Video Wall Helps With Safety Management

In consolidating two independent 911 centers, the City of Tallahassee and Leon County built a common facility where they could share information and collaborate.

AVI-SPL Sells Hotel, Equipment Rental and Event Production Services Division

A Letter from CEO John Zettel

We recently announced the sale of AVI-SPL’s rental, staging and hotel services operations to Freeman, the leading global partner for integrated marketing solutions for live engagements including expositions, conventions, corporate events and exhibits. AVI-SPL’s rental, staging and hotel services division will join other leading Freeman brands such as Encore Event Technologies, Stage Rigging and Alford Media, as part of Freeman Audio Visual.

AVI-SPL’s rental, staging and hotel services division has been a part of the AVI-SPL family for the past 32 years providing in-house AV support for hotels and convention centers and supporting events with AV equipment rental, video production and live event production services. Freeman has an equally rich history rooted in values that mirror those of AVI-SPL – operating with the utmost respect for their employees, maintaining a firm dedication to operational excellence, sustainability, profitability and customer service. We plan to continue to partner with Freeman on live event opportunities, and wish Freeman and their new team members much success.

The sale of the rental, staging and hotel services division is a key step in furthering our strategy to be the world’s leading provider of integrated collaboration solutions. As the largest pro-AV systems integrator, we are committed to investing in the growth of our core business of pro-AV design, build and integration, product sales and managed services. We will leverage and continue to build on the expertise of the AVI-SPL team, working closely with our manufacturer partners to specify, design, build and manage the best collaborative solutions for our customers. At AVI-SPL, we remain dedicated to providing our customers with the strongest solution while building a culture of efficiency through technology.
