Don't have FOBO (Fear Of Better Offers). At SSAV we believe that high quality Audio/Visual services don't need to come with a high price-tag and that all our clients should be receiving an incredible value on their purchases. Hotels and convention spaces usually have in-house vendors that are often times giving out high AV quotes, have hidden fees, and terms that are difficult to understand. We’re here to make you look good and we can help you save thousands of dollars by letting you know 10 things to consider when negotiating for your event, even if you don’t choose our services.
1) Are there penalties, liaison fees, or supervisor fees for using an outside AV company?
If you're able to negotiate these fees, make sure you have it reflected in your contract. If they don't budge, insist that if the outside AV company follows venue standards the fees should be removed. You can save up to 100% of your fees by using this tactic.
