Hello Team AV Direct
I would just like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who had a part in making the DAF  event amazing! From those who covered the sets, to those carrying in the tech, to all the tech guys.
I really couldn’t have done it without you guys and your expertise!
Thank you for always going the extra mile and being there for my 1000 questions and 1000 revisions.
Every year what we produce together just gets bigger and better! I don’t think I would be where I am today if it wasn’t for you guys. You are all like family to me.
