An event can be a simple session like a Lunch and Learn to a Public lecture to a complex Graduation ceremony.

The University holds events on a regular basis. These events range from private sessions like Lunch and Learn, Town Halls, Certification classes to public events like Public lectures to Roundtable discussions to Commencement ceremonies. Most events will require some form of AV technology support, oftentimes working in conjunction with Facilities team or 3rd party contractors.

Basic guidelines will be to understand the intended objective of your event, type of event format, audience type and size, location of event, presenter(s) profile and requirement, type of AV technology needed, catering, reception, parking, security and other considerations.
