A/V Factory named audiovisual service provider for GTCTC

The Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center (GTCTC) has selected Seattle-based Audio Visual Factory as its in-house preferred audio-visual service provider, according to a statement released this week. The company will maintain an office and staff on-site to provide audio-visual equipment and technical support to GTCTC’s clients.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to partner with the GTCTC,” said company president Steve Barr. “We look forward to establishing an even greater presence in Tacoma and assisting in the advancement of technology in the ‘Wired City.’”

General manager Brandon Cook added, “This will provide our company a tremendous opportunity to redefine the role that audio-visual companies play within the convention and hospitality industry.”

This is the second major convention center contract awarded to the company. The Audio Visual Factory provides services under a similar arrangement with the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle. It is also the exclusive audio-visual supplier for the Sheraton Tacoma Hotel, the Red Lion Olympia Hotel, and the Best Western Fife Hotel & Convention Center. 

The GTCTC is a 277,000 square foot facility scheduled to open in mid-November 2004. It will provide meeting and exhibition space for local and national events.
