3D Venue Technical Design

A new service offered by AV Direct is that of a 3D Venue Technical Design.

This virtual event designer allows clients to visualize their function prior to event setup dates.

By including all technical elements such as, production lighting, sound, audio visual, staging and screens, along with table layout and decor, we can provide the client with a precise design indicating guests seating, table arrangement and overall function layout.

This offers a real solution to clients who are not familiar with a venue and need precise measurements to squeeze in those extra seats for a function.
