AVSS is continually expanding our client base mostly through referrals. We have a reputation for using premium equipment from the leading manufacturer, providing professional well trained staff, as well as giving superb customer service all at a fair price. Customer satisfaction and word of mouth have been our best sales tools since our inception in 1991.
Our clients span all sectors of the economy, mostly Fortune 500, but currently consist largely within the medical-pharmaceutical industry. For the last 15 years AVSS has been working with several meeting planners and production houses doing pharmacy company drug rollouts and sales meetings (Pfizer, Pharmacia, Novartis, Abbott Labs, etc.). The average meeting is 100-300 people lasting 3 days with 1 day for set-up. During peak times AVSS has done up to 6 meetings concurrently providing all staging for the general session as well as 2-12 breakout rooms for each city. AVSS has done as many as 70 breakout rooms for Pharmacia’s National Sales Meetings at one time.
Our single largest show each year (in excess of $1M) is the Pediatric Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS) / Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (AICS) held annually in a different city each year (nationally and internationally (i.e. Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Orlando, Las Vegas, Buenos Aires, Australia). The main conference consists of 800-1000 doctors & staff that come together for a live, interactive (bidirectional) symposium , as we transmit/receive via satellite over 30 live surgeries being performed by the world’s top pediatric/ cardiologists on location from 12 to 15 of the leading hospitals around the world.
AVSS provides all the staff and the equipment for the main conference as well as all the North American satellite locations.The PICS/AICS show consists of 15-20 staff at the main conference and 5 staff at each remote site for a total crew of over 90 people and in excess of $ 10 million worth of equipment. AVSS coordinates the entire event worldwide months in advance to assure an exceptional show every year. AVSS has the staff & equipment to handle just about any type of event a client can throw at us.
We have also become the provider of choice for the International Symposium on the Hybrid Approach to Congenital Heart Disease (“ISHAC”), held annually at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Similar in style to PICS, but slightly smaller in scope, ISHAC brings together 250-500 of the world’s top cardiologists for an intensive learning experience featuring the presentation of live cases broadcast from around the United States. AVSS provides all of the AV support for the general session and remote sites, up to and including the coordination and scheduling of all satellite uplink and downlink equipment and satellite time (similar to the PICS).
In 2006 AVSS was the first company to do both of these interactive (bidirectional) medical symposiums in High Definition, a first for any symposium of this caliber in the world. We were able to do the PICS & ISHAC general sessions and a few select sites in HD. The doctors loved the image quality so much, and felt that it was so successful; they both decided to do their entire symposiums in High Definition the next year- proof that our quest to constantly raise the bar for quality and success with each client is a never ending journey for AVSS.
In the last 10 years we have become the preferred video vendor for several universities here in Florida doing both the graduations and all major events for the University of Miami, Nova Southeastern University as well as Florida Golf Coast University.
AVSS has staged events for the last 3 US Presidents (Clinton, Bush, Obama), Mikhail Gorbachev and multiple events for the Dalai Lama. Our company and employees have all been cleared by the secret service for High profile events as a preferred vendor with the U.S. government.
