Peter is a passionate AV professional who still loves the business after 30 years. He believes in creating long-term relationships with clients by helping them succeed and becoming their event partner vs just being another supplier. He offers a wealth of practical knowledge on event technology and how to use it effectively for live events.

Always keen to give back, Peter has contributed to the growth of the event industry in Canada, launching the Alberta Mediaco offices with Neil MacNeil in 2000 and has been actively involved and volunteered with numerous industry associations, at both the national and local board levels. He is a frequent guest speaker at industry conferences and for event management programs, helping educate the next generation of planners with AV101 sessions on event technology and technical production.
In 2000 Neil helped to launch the Alberta Mediaco branches with Peter Cornforth making his mark on our industry. Currently, as a Regional Vice President of FMAV he is responsible for the general management of the Edmonton office and the delivery of exceptional experiences to FMAV clients across Western Canada.
