We outgrew our 2 small shops & relocated our business closer to a warehouse bay downtown.
Warehouse bay beside ours became available & our space doubled, enabling us to better organize equipment, have a space for prepping equipment & a loading bay.
From its inception 2003, we have provided AV services for the BC Natural Resources Forum each year. In 2020, the event became the largest conference hosted in Prince George, with over 1,200+ participants.
Having lived in Prince George since childhood, we believe in giving back to our community. We are happy to assist nonprofit organizations making a difference.
Many of these groups were the first organizations to approach us when our business was new, & we appreciated their trust. We enjoy & have enjoyed being a part of these annual events while being able to assist through some form of a donation of our services:
