Doug Watson and his team at Avista were incredible! They stepped in with every ounce of energy at the start of our project and ended the event on the same note. Professionalism, attention to detail, accommodating, and willing to go that extra mile. Wonderful with the staff at our organization and incredibly attentive to every one of our forty (!) speakers! We could literally not have done this event without them.

- Monica Hampton, Director of Education, The Furniture Society

I've been running operations for corporate conferences/expos for 6+ years now, and Avista is hands down the best AV company I've ever used. I've contracted with Avista several times and received top notch AV every time. The whole process (from the sales process to the onsite execution) is seamless with them.

- Michael Scharbarth, Global Strategic Management Institute

We have been using Avista Audio Visual Rentals for many years for our annual sports club banquet event. Full service; two stages, one outdoor and one indoor stage, screens, microphones, sound and lights. Doug and his amazing team are solid, calm and fantastic to work with. Our events have always been very successful. As a customer you don't need to worry as you are in good hands with Doug and his team. Thank you so much for your expertise, guidance, help and support... we are very grateful.

- Vesna L., Events Coordinator for Norcal Crew

Avista used to do one small piece of one of our annual fundraising events, but now they handle all AV components for our gala events. They are consistently friendly, professional, and competitively priced. We can always count on them to help produce an amazing event.
