Meet the team: daily AV equipment hires

In this latest installment of visionews we would like to introduce our daily AV equipment hires team (aka visiontechnology): Ritchie Martin and Ami Gallagher. Headed up by Operations Manager, Ritchie, the daily AV equipment hires team do just that: organise and arrange all day to day elements associated with any audio visual equipment hire for local venues in and around Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Our strong technical heritage comes from over 30 years of supplying AV equipment to venues and clients. Throughout our growth and expansion to a full event production company, our daily AV hire department has always been a vital part of visionevents; our daily bread. One small AV hire for a PA system and laptop for an afternoon’s presentation could lead to a multi-day international conference, so we value each and every client.

As you will have gathered from many of our blogs, we pride ourselves in the high quality and contemporary standards of our equipment and as such, we invest heavily in updating our audio visual hire stock annually to ensure that all our clients – daily hires and production – benefit from the best equipment in the industry. This ethos has kept us at the forefront of the industry for many years and it is teams such as our daily AV hires who ensure each project is delivered to the highest standard with the client knowing all they have to do is give us a call and we will sort everything out.

Ritchie adds:
“Having Ami and David on the team is great. This department is the heart of visionevents; ensuring clients have what they want and when they need it on a daily basis. We are busy going out to see all our clients – old and new – as customer service is very important to us…so watch out for your phone call inviting ourselves for a cuppa tea with your team! It’s essential that when clients phone us up to book their AV hire requirement or ask for advice, they know who’s on the end of the line.”

So when you phone our team to confirm your daily audio visual hire, you will be speaking with either Ritchie or Ami; get to know them with our quick Q+A:

Ami Gallagher, Hire Co-ordinator

Ami Gallagher, Hires Coordinator VisionEventsWhat attracted you to work for Vision Events?
I studied Events Management a few years ago and spent most of my time in customer facing roles within hotels throughout Edinburgh. I wanted to explore the more technical side of events so it seemed a natural move to go to VisionEvents as an industry leader.

What’s one of your favourite memories so far at VE?
I don’t have one particular favourite memory, but any day cakes are brought in is a good day 

What’s your favourite piece of AV equipment?!
Our outdoor projection equipment is impressive, it is remarkable what we can project onto!
I love to watch the different designs we can create and to see client’s faces light up when they see it in action is great.

What’s your favourite hobby/interest?
I do a mix of yoga and weight-lifting during my free time.

What’s your favourite drink?
Just about anything but if I had to pick …. probably a strawberry daiquiri.
