The Annual General Meeting is a central and important part of any business. The meetings can vary enormously in size and complexity from a simple low key affair to a large scale multisite event for a global blue chip company.
The key elements that apply to all though are the same – the ability for everybody to be heard clearly and to be able to see all the detail. Technology plays a large part in the modern AGM with increased uptake in the use of interactive technologies such as electronic voting systems. Webcasting of meetings is growing steadily allowing companies to involve remote members in the process.
Associations & Charities
Saville has developed many long term relationships with leading Associations and Charities and are proud to support them in their valuable causes.
We have supported numerous organisations for over forty years providing superb stage sets, advanced technical skills together with the latest technology available. We pride ourselves on providing unparalleled support to all our clients whenever and wherever they need it.
Awards events are a proven strategy for improving standards and increasing motivation. They are probably the most effective means of recognising and celebrating success.
Saville Audio Visual designs, supplies and supports over 100 awards ceremonies each year – some as stand alone events, some as part of a conference programme. These range from the most formal and reverent to the most contemporary and vibrant. The objective is still the same, they have to look right, sound right, feel right and most importantly of all – they need to inspire.
Whatever you may call it, a conference is a meeting where people “confer” about a topic, and we ought to know! Across the globe we supply and support around 2,200 meetings a year.
With a history dating back to 1876, we’ve had plenty of time to consider how people communicate effectively. This experience has been invested into the way we train our teams and the type of equipment and technologies we support.
By partnering with Saville Audio Visual you know we have you and your delegates’ best interests at heart. We know which technology is most appropriate so every member of your audience can see and hear your message with the clarity needed for maximum information retention. You can rely on us to present your message in a way that reflects and empowers your brand.
Our new Digital Event Technologies, have been developed specifically for increasing reach, retention and return in the live meeting environment. They offer you an opportunity to maximise the efficiency of all the communications at your events.
Pulsating rhythms fill the air, lights burst into action and expectant eyes filled with anticipation are fixed on the models as they sweep down the runway. This is fashion – and it has to be right!
It’s all about first impressions, whether it is the height of haute couture or the latest corporate uniform there is only one chance to impress!
The teams at Saville are well practiced in making sure that any fashion show creates the maximum impact with the audience. Our discreet yet powerful audio systems provide crystal clear sound to compliment the impressive and evocative lighting show that we can provide using the latest state of the art LED fixtures and intelligent lighting. If your show needs an extra boost we have a range of dramatic special effects at our disposal from mood setting haze to confetti and pyrotechnic systems.
Take your normal live conference event, add in a bit of social media like Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, round it off with a large helping of live webcasting and add in an event website to stick it all together and what do you have…?
Well, probably a whole heap of extra work but most importantly you have the unique opportunity to grow your event, engage a whole new extended audience and build a firm foundation for the future.
The ingredients have all been around for some time and indeed the concept of a blended or ‘hybrid’ event has blossomed over the last couple of years. However it’s been in its infancy and is only now starting to be seen as an indispensable route to communicating in the 21st century.
With successful events delivered across six out of the seven continents we have seen continued growth in our operations portfolio overseas.
With all this heightened activity the question has to be why do our clients continue to engage us to support them on their events overseas? Here is some of the feedback we received…
“Saville technicians don’t just install and operate the technology on site, but actively engage with the presenters and project team. Crew continuity leads to a superior understanding of clients’ objectives and differentiates the Saville service from locally sourced equipment and in-house suppliers.”
Working as part of the event team Saville crews manage all the technical requirements on-site, answer questions, calm nerves and can make any last minute presentation amends.
Partnering with a Saville international team helps inspire presenter confidence, reduces stress levels for the event team and mitigates risk of technical failure.
Here at Saville we understand the action doesn’t always take place inside – things can certainly go al fresco!
Much as we would like to stay indoors and keep warm, when called for we look forward to the opportunity to show our creativity outdoors. This can range from lighting up the outside of a building to providing all the necessary equipment for outdoor events such as concerts, ceremonies and even moonlight walks!
Saville has been supporting the international pharmaceutical events industry for over twelve years. Our philosophy of working in close contact with our clients has allowed us to invest in and develop specific services addressing the continually changing requirements in the pharmaceutical events sector.
Supplying a complete portfolio of additional value added solutions now compliments quality service and AV equipment support. These include webcasting, using one of the most successful platforms in the world and the supply and development of interactive and collaborative tablet based technologies for increased delegate engagement in most of our meetings.
All this in combination with specialist on-site eDC support, paperless conferencing and digital presentation capture for on-demand playback,means that demand for our services has increased year on year.
Big or Small – whatever your product, we have a solution that will exceed your expectations and deliver the result you need.
Over the years we have launched products ranging from giant Caterpillar trucks to washing powder and software. A successful product launch is crucial to it’s success. We realise that some launches need to go with a bang whilst others need that element of surprise or maybe a small scale intimate affair. Whatever the occasion we can help make sure that everything runs smoothly and has the desired impact.
Getting your message across face to face is still one of the most powerful methods of communication. It is not always feasible or indeed economical to transport large numbers of people to one venue.
A travelling event is often the best solution and our unique nationwide network of centres is perfect for ensuring that you can effectively and economically deliver your message. Having 10 centres around the country allows us to offer a consistent level of equipment specification, trained personnel with local venue knowledge and most importantly reduced transport costs.
Action packed sporting events are guaranteed to raise excitement levels and we have the kit and expertise to make it happen.
From darts to boxing, football tournaments to welly and haggis throwing, we have had our share of strange requests. We have been asked to supply simple PA systems for school sports days to providing a fully specified sound and lighting production with broadcast camera’s for live boxing as well as webcasting live wellie flinging.
