At AVLancer, we connect talented people with customers in need of high-quality production staff for live, hybrid, and digital events. While we specialize in the corporate event space, we have a network of professionals that can serve any space needing AV staffing. This network includes everything from general audio-visual technicians to audio and lighting leads, LED wall technicians, camera and video operators, technical directors, lighting designers, and stage managers.
As AV professionals ourselves, we know freelance AV pros would rather be doing what they love to do, setting and running impressive shows, than making calls and networking to find work, so we make their lives easier by doing that legwork for them. Moreover, we try to provide jobs that are more than just another gig by placing people in work that enhances their skills, grows their own business potential, and enriches their lives.
But there’s more to it than just finding work for freelancers, we also want to eliminate pain for event planners and producers. We understand the enormous challenges involved in planning and executing all the details necessary to create successful meetings and experiences, so we remove the huge challenge of finding talented, skilled, professional AV crew and staff. This allows planners and producers to stay focused on their end-user client and the overall success of the event.
To put it simply, we allow event planners and producers and freelance AV professionals to focus on what matters most to them by taking some pain off their plates. Whether you are a planner, producer, or freelance AV pro, you need each other to be successful, AVLancer makes bringing you together easy.
AV Lancer connects Audio Visual Companies with the best Freelance contractors in the industry. We provide an interface to connect event Producers, Project Managers and Audio Visual Firms with high caliber and dependable freelance professionals.
We exist to give EVENT PROFESSIONALS the CONFIDENCE AND STABILITY to SUCCEED.
