TESTIMONIALS: Testimonials

Good morning amazing peeps!

Once again I write this thank you email in awe of the amazing work you and the team deliver at every BP conference!  Last year’s conference definitely set the benchmark for all of us in virtual conferencing and I wasn’t sure whether we could actually “level up” on the high standards already set..

 Well you think I would know by now that this team never settles for the safety of simply repeating but always learning and improving exponentially with each event you deliver.

 To Mel, Lebo, Karen, Hayley, Linda, Sipha and the rest of the team that made the magic happen_ THANK YOU for yet again an unforgettable BP conference and know that we appreciate and sincere the support and effort expended on this important event.

 Well done, thank you and rest well (if you ever get that chance) and cant wait for next year’s BP conference already 😊.

I had just wanted to send a personal note to thank you and the AV & Beyond Team for a phenomenal delivery yesterday - Yet again you boys have found a gem in Marno - who delivered with such competency, calm and collaborative support. Working with your team is nothing short of effortless and I know what it takes to present that to clients with all the madness that goes on in the background. Marno you were an anchor and massive support yesterday so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi Hayley, Marno, Anel and Shaazia 

 A very big, huge thank you to you!  Yes your name is “and beyond” which is exactly what you did for this project

When we had to move the event date due to unforeseen circumstances and it just so happened to be during a very busy period you did not flinch you shifted some setup dates around and went above and beyond to make the event date happen.  The Entertainment was great as you would’ve noticed on the comments during the event the audience fully enjoyed each act.  Please extend our thank you to the entire team 

Looking forward to the next one!

The Institute of Risk Management South Africa (IRMSA) would like to recommend the AV & Beyond group for all services connected to events, conferences and functions.

We were extremely fortunate to meet Warren Freidin and his team, from AV and Beyond, in 2014 when we needed to find a new supplier for our technical support at our Annual Awards and Gala Dinner. Once we started working with Warren, we realised immediately that the service that we had been receiving over the years for all of our events, was not even close to the kind of support that AV and Beyond provide. The very first Gala Dinner that we hosted, using AV and Beyond, has allowed IRMSA to elevate the level of all of our events to a completely different level that we believe are now World class.

Since 2014, we have privileged to use AV and Beyond for all of our major events, such as our Annual Conferences, our Master Class extravaganza and International Summits. Not only has AV and Beyond assisted us with the technical support but with the growth of the company, our full scope of events needs are now covered through the AV & Beyond network of companies, with our entertainment needs, professional speakers, imagery, décor, photography, etc.

We are now able to conceptualise our ideas at the beginning of our projects, with the AV & Beyond Team, and create a holistic event where the full show, becomes an experience which is then expertly supported by the technical expertise that enhance all aspects of our events. It has been incredible watching how our events come alive and our members and delegates benefit from the experiences that we bring to them each year, which are most definitely enhanced year after year.

Working with the AV and Beyond Team has developed into a relationship built on trust, where we know that our events are seamless from start to finish, but where we enjoy the engagement and fantastic ideas that we get from the team. Each year is fresh and different, and we have only benefited from this relationship. Every aspect of our event feels important when working with this team, which not calms all nerves but ensures a well run and well executed event. We will only work with the AV and Beyond Team now for all events at IRMSA, as we would not be able to replace the support or energy that we receive from any other supplier.

We look forward to our continued relationship with AV and Beyond and we cannot wait to see what they have planned for us this year!

I have worked with AV and Beyond for about 5 years now, at both my previous organization as well as my new organization.
I had no choice but to introduce AV and Beyond to my new organization and because of the amazing and professional service Warren provided to me at my previous organization, they did not disappoint.

What stands out and attracts me to AV and Beyond is the personal attention, strategic and genuine partnering, their work ethic and affordable rates. This is a company that is flexible and that ALWAYS put the client first. Nothing is ever too much or “not possible”. They make it possible.

Their equipment is world class and their staff is exceptionally knowledgeable and professional. They always deliver more than you asked for and never misses a deadline.

AV and Beyond has delivered various big projects at both organisations I was involved in, and this was always for the Top 200 leaders in the organization. One of the things that I value most about Warren and the team is their experience and creative flair. They do not just provide equipment, but they are experts in the field of creating an experience. I can honestly not fault AV and Beyond and highly recommend them to any organization that prefers to work with experts and professionals in the field of AV.
