“For the Canadian Innovation Conference, the Encore production team made the planning easy. They took the theme of the conference (The Power of Connection) and created an astounding interactive atmosphere from concept to execution. With their attention to detail, high quality of work, and drive to find the most creative solutions, our participants experienced interactive displays, unique lighting and staging design, a memorable social media area, an engaging opening video and so much more. With their onsite presence, the planning committee was at ease throughout the event and was able harness the power of connection instead of having to worry about any technical issues that may have arisen. I have worked with Encore for many years and their knowledge and professionalism enables me to focus my attention where it’s needed and with their team, I never have to worry about AV onsite. I would highly recommend Encore to anyone planning an event, whether it’s a small, intimate gathering, or a congress of thousands!”
