Your Next Customer Might Come Over the Internet

Producer Resource Designed to Hook You Up By Denise Harrison
Event planners usually rely on colleagues, directories and prayers when it comes to hiring services and renting equipment far from home. Producer Resource is a new service that relieves a lot of the worry for planners and gives AV companies a chance to bid on projects they would never have known about.

This RFP management and communications system is a Website where planners fill out detailed questionnaires to prepare an RFP, including preferred locations, areas of specialty. Event planners can submit an RFP for an entire event or specific aspects, such as lighting or staging; for one piece of equipment, such as a projector; or for one piece of equipment that meets particular specifications, such as a projector of certain brightness and image size. If event planners are unsure of what they need, they still can submit an RFP, and suppliers will assist them to determine the best products for their needs. And because of its availability on the Internet, event planners can submit and check the status of their RFPs anywhere, at any time.


The Pro AV suppliers must register with the service. After they do, they are checked out thoroughly by Producer Resource, including a visit to the company Website and a Dunn and Bradstreet check. So anyone bidding on a project is a trusted resource, and those bidding against you wont be suspect.
