We are excited to introduce you to Jenny Rissover, a Production Coordinator at Bespoke Audio Visual.
I had an opportunity recently to drive through downtown Toronto. It’s been 17 months since I have spent a substantial amount of time in the city which I live. It struck me that the landscape is entirely different from when I left it in March 2020. Buildings that once existed are gone and brand-new buildings have been built in their place. Parks have sprung up, streets have been closed and redirected, walking and biking paths have been opened. Most notably, the CaféTO program has changed the landscape of some of the major arteries and the city feels more like a European walking city than it does the old City of Toronto.
We are delighted to introduce you to Kris Weber, Production Manager at Bespoke Audio Visual. Kris joined us earlier this year and we are so excited to have him as a member of the #BespokeAV team!
After a little break, we are excited to bring our team spotlight series back! We are thrilled to introduce you to Hannah Murphy, Executive Assistant at Bespoke Audio Visual. Her passion for work, love of events and dedication to perfection makes her a great asset to our team.
A year ago... I departed with my family for a pre-March break trip. As we left Toronto, public officials assured us travelling was safe and this little-known virus was contained. Days later, the WHO declared a pandemic, and the world in which we knew disappeared in an instant.
Just because you aren’t able to gather in person doesn’t mean you can’t host your own company holiday party – make it virtual! This year has been especially difficult with COVID-19. Many people have been working from home and are missing face-to-face interactions with their co-workers. This is a better time than ever to get your creative juices flowing and create an unforgettable experience to celebrate the end of another year.
September 22 was the Day of Visibility for the Live Event Community. One hour after sundown, technicians, suppliers and venues across Canada were asked to light the night red in an effort to raise awareness for the event industry that is still in the dark because of COVID-19. It was an incredible display of unity and we are proud to have participated.
The event industry was flipped on its head overnight and it may take a while before we see the industry rebalance. In this unique environment caused by the pandemic, we are having to rethink our work and meeting environments. Paused are the days of in-person meetings and conferences and instead, we must focus on creative ways to meet and resume business virtually.
