In San Luis Obispo, Ca. since 1997.
AV Solutions has serviced over 8,500 events in the past 20 years. Personal service is the way we do it.
Mike, our founder, co-owner and operator has a background of 38 years working with clients and AV starting at age 14, which includes: his family AV/video production business and Government Access TV, a large world-wide AV company – AVHQ, CSU media services, SB County Ed. Office Media Dept., directing AV for a national seminar company in all of the major US markets, and producing educational videos overseas while in the US Peace Corps. In 1997, Mike and his wife Denise started Audio Visual Solutions in San Luis Obispo Ca. Bringing national AV experience to the local market was a hit with the local venues and started attracting corporate clients for annual and reoccurring events. 20 years later, AVS continues to work with many of our original clients, services our annual clients and takes on new clients that value our personal level of service.
Why choose AV Solutions?
Because experience counts.

4. With so many jobs completed to our customers’ satisfaction, AVS works to understand and fulfill the requirements of each individual event.
What about venue AV companies and hotel contracts?
When choosing a venue, you should also choose an AV company that meets your specific event needs, including your budget. You will get a great AV experience by choosing the best AV team for your event. In larger markets, some resorts’ in-house AV companies may have an “mandatory” AV clause in their Banquet Contract. Hotel sales departments are often willing to cancel the in-house AV clause to get your Food and Beverage and room business. Many times it’s easier to negotiate off-site AV than you might think. If your venue has an AV clause, ask for the AV clause to be deleted before you sign any contract. If there is a service fee, negotiate it as low as possible and keep your options open.
AV Solutions is the trusted AV company for many of our local hotels and venues, so we know how to work with sales and banquet staffs, and we do not use mandatory AV clauses.
With AV Solutions, you are not on your own. Once we understand your AV needs, we will help you negotiate with the venue and on-site AV company to get the most for your budget.
Our clients see up to 50% cost savings over in-house only AV quotes.
We encourage you to get a bid from the in-house AV company, even if you plan not to use them. It will give you a baseline price for vendor comparison. Pay attention to their responsiveness, bid reply time, detail, professionalism, in addition to their final price.
Using AV Solutions results in consistency. Our team is your team!
