How To Host A Successful Corporate Event

A poorly run event can lead to nothing but an expensive cocktail party where interaction is non-existent. Although online communication has taken over the world, face-to-face conversations can still have immeasurable value. So what’s the trick to hosting a successful corporate event?

The first trick is to identify the reason behind your event. Whether it’s to pitch a new product to potential clients, share what’s going on inside the company or something as simple as growing your network you must have a clear objective. As you begin planning the event and brainstorming your goal keep this question in mind, “why are we hosting this event.” It will help you stay on track and maintain a clear focus.

Once you have your objective in mind you can begin thinking about who you want to invite and how to create a buzz. To do this, you need to give them a reason to show up. This can be accomplished by choosing a venue that people are eager to check out, or the special features that will be incorporated. That’s where we come in!

While we can’t generate interactions between your guests, we can surely set you up with a fantastic display. Whether you need projection screens, audio equipment or spectacular lighting we’ve got it all! Contact CitiView Audio Visual today at 212-632-5196.

Common Projector Problems

You’ve spent endless hours practicing your speech. You put together a dynamite visual presentation, and you’re ready to “wow” your audience. It’s time to set up the projector and get everything ready for the event, when all of a sudden you experience problems with the machine. What do you do?

video projector

Nowadays, projectors are a staple in most business meetings and presentations because of their ability to accompany a speech with visual aids. While they can really enhance your event, there are a few problems you may face when operating an LCD projector. But don’t worry, it’s usually a quick fix!

Purple Dots

If you turn the machine on only to notice pink or purple dots on the screen, it means there are dust particles in the green panel. Dust particles can affect the quality of the images you are displaying, so you should clean the projector regularly to eliminate this problem.

Poor Image Quality

Are your images blurry or distorted? This can be a result of an unaligned computer resolution. Most new projectors come with an automatic alignment feature but if yours doesn’t have one, all you need to do is adjust the computer’s resolution until the images improve.

Remote Control Isn’t Working

If your remote doesn’t seem to be working, check the batteries first. If it still doesn’t work after replacing the batteries, move a bit closer to the machine. Most remote controls have a recommended distance range and you may be too far away.

Need a projector for your next event? Whether you need the actual machine, or would simply like to rent projection screens, CitiView Audio Visual has you covered! Give us a call today at 212-632-5196.

“The Ford Foundation has used Citiview Audio Visual services for the past two years.   We often host high visibility events and screenings at the foundation headquarters that require additional staffing.   Many of these programs incorporate everything from lighting, camera and audio services and we needed a company that could provide us with professional staffing and experience with live events.  CitiView has exceeded all of our expectations in these areas.  One thing I particularly like is that they often handle last minute requests and they always arrive well in advance of the “call time”.  I would recommend them to any business that needs reliable, experienced AV staff and can work under pressure with grace and a cool head.”

– Bob Kreizel (Senior Audio Video Services Technician, Ford Foundation)
