Each year our company holds a conference during the month of January. We take approximately 60 employees to a different city each year. As the event planner, my biggest priority and concern for our conference has been ensuring cutting edge technology and A/V support. We have a number of speakers and our agenda is fast paced, leaving very little room for mishaps and mistakes.

This year we hired the Amora Group to help us with our audio visual needs while in Denver.  We could not have had a better experience. It was seamless and they made it look effortless from behind the scenes. We needed everything from pipe and drape to mixers to random requests for video on-site. It was no small undertaking. I rarely plan a conference or event where all goes well with such a large amount of presentations and sound needs.  We did not experience one issue over the course of three days. All expectations were met and they went above and beyond every day. On the last day of our conference our CEO stood up in front our group and gave thanks and appreciation to Jake and his team for a job well done. Enough was said. My goal next year is to have their team travel to our next conference! Thank you again Amora Group!
