AV-CANADA’s wheel of giving back at CMEE was more than a fun way to win some prizes while supporting the MPIF Canadian Council; it was proof of their commitment to the industry associations that have meant so much to event professionals, especially these past few years.
AV-CANADA donated to the MPI Foundation for each spin, raising funds to support education, training, research, and other special interest needs that enrich our industry and scholarships to complement MPI membership, education, and career opportunities.
The wheel of giving back fundraiser was more than a fun way to raise some cash and win some prizes; it was an investment into our industry. Local relationships are built on trust and support which is more valuable than a discount for an industry as risk-averse as ours, and AV-CANADA understands this better than most.
That trust is built one experience at a time by integrating themselves into the community, supporting fundraisers, attending professional industry and social events, and consistently being there for our community over the long haul.
Because trusted relationships trump discounts to professional event planners every time.
