What Our Rentals and Staging Customers Are Saying About Sharp's Audio Visual...
"I wanted to let you know what amazing staff you have out here on the West Coast and in particular the VCC! In particular Mike Thomas and Ian Davis. Mike is amazing to work with and has such a great understanding of the conference business which makes working with him a real pleasure. I know he is extremely busy, but he is still able to be very responsive and available and goes above and beyond in so many areas. Ian is also a pleasure to work with and works hard to make sure that Sharp's is providing a very high level of service. Joel, Dallas and Ron as our on the floor regulars are invaluable as they bring so much experience and expertise to the VCC that we know our clients are well taken care of. So many times we bring the problems to the surface and forget to comment on the great things - so here you are!"

"Jordan exemplified his customer service promise of always being helpful, courteous and knowledgeable by going above and beyond his duties to directly assist me in producing the Tech Hub at the Banff World Media Festival.He was always prompt and professional. His technical expertise is superior, his communication skills are excellent. What I enjoyed most about working with Jordan for 5 days was his ability to predict my needs and the needs of the customer. His problem solving and creative skills made the tech hub the huge success it was. Thank you Jordan!"

"I would like to thank Sharp's Audio Visual for the exceptional work done during FCM's 2011 Sustainable Communites Conference. Sharp's was an influential leader throughout the entire conference, in fact we couldn't have succeeded without your support. Your team went above and beyond what we could have expected of this type of service. I would highly recommend Sharp's Audio Visual's services for future conferences, it was a pleasure working with all of you!"
Federation of Canadian Municipalities
"Our event could not have been better. It was more than we envisioned. Our sponsors were elated; the curlers very grateful and pleased with the organizing committee’s efforts; the fans very pleased with the level of curling that they were able to witness during the championships. Your technician who worked all of the draws did an exemplary job. He managed to cover all of the action. Our volunteers really enjoyed the closed circuit tv coverage that was available to them in the Volunteers Lounge. The quality of the picture on our two tvs in the Volunteers Lounge was exceptional. The big screen worked well as not only did we televise every draw but between each draw we also rolled a cd containing pictures that were taken around the venue. Overall I was very pleased with the service your firm provided."

"From day one, when I touched base with Barna, I knew we where in good hands. All I came to Barna with was a sketch and a vague plan. He introduced me to Rob and the rest of the team, who worked together tirelessly to answer every one of my questions, concerns and ideas. We wanted to WOW our guests, clients and honorees, and Rob, Barna and the rest of the team brought this to life. The entire team went above and beyond any of our expectations, and worked for days before, well into the night, to bring it to life. We were wowed at the professionalism and knowledge each member brought, and incorporating and training our SAIT students into the event. After all this, they still had a large team, and Barna at the actual test run for the event! Everything went off beautifully! To sum it all up, it was a pleasure working with the entire sharps team, and we look forward to the opportunity again."

"I wanted to express our thanks and appreciation to Jay from Sharp’s AV. Jay was professional, courteous, and above-and-beyond helpful. The AV was pulled off without the slightest hitch, and Jay was more than happy to pitch in with anything related to the conference.Months in advance of the conference, Jay worked with me to hatch through all the AV details, so as to ensure a smooth show. He made time to meet with us in person on several occasions, and made a number of suggestions to improve the quality of the presentation. He is truly an amazing ambassador for Sharp’s as well as the Four Points by Sheraton."

Our executives and the management team were delighted with the event, which in part is thanks to the people from Sharp's Audio Visual. All of the elements that fell under the direction of Sharp's Audio Visual were handled impeccably. From the initial on-site meeting, to assistance with the electrical issues and finally through the execution of the event itself, your team did a great job. They were responsive to situations that arose, creative with solutions and timely with their implementation. To you and your team, a big thank you from all of us."

"A belated letter of thanks to let you know we appreciate working with your knowledgeable staff throughout western Canada. As you know, we hold meetings in Fairmonts in Banff, Lake Louise, Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria, and I appreciate the staff with whom we interact at these sites. Many of your staff have worked with us for many years, which makes planning and holding meetings worry free. For the 2010 season, I would especially like to thank Zack Veal at Chateau Whistler for handling our very last minute webcast needs so efficiently and calmly. He made this program a success, when the Iceland volcano and subsequent travel cancellations could easily have wreaked havoc! I look forward to another successful season with you and all of your staff."

Everyone did a great job; they made themselves available at all times and were all extremely courteous. For 3 days the client kept telling me how wonderful your team was because they took the time to teach her so much stuff! It was great fun working with the guys, please let them know that I appreciate them and the work that they do. Quite honestly, I don't think I would host an event at the Banff Springs without you guys!”

“Once again, Sharp’s Audio Visual has taken very good care of PCL. Having such a competent tech team there made Johanne and I look great – and made our AV program shine! You know all the prep in the world is for naught, if the execution fails. And it didn’t, thanks to the professionalism of your staff.”
“Our events run the spectrum from small meetings to large conferences, charity events, special events and sports competitions and I’ve found the Sharp’s Audio Visual team always understands and delivers on the unique needs of these various events. The Sharp’s team is always there, giving countless hours to ensure our events look and sound great. I find that the level of service they provide is refreshing, and they never forget they are in the people servicing industry.”
