“Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Tampa Bay (BOMA GTB) hired O’Design to handle all our AV needs for a 350 person conference.  Their communication before, during and after the conference was consistent and thorough.  The attention to detail and staying in touch was paramount to the success of the event.  There were many components, including a promo video, large monitors in the trade-show area with looping slides, many PPT, and audio. They exceeded all our expectations and the staff was wonderful to work with.  The owner, Stephen O’Connor was on-site with other staff to assure that everything was set-up to our liking.  I would certainly use and recommend O’Design to any conference planner.”

Melanie B.Executive Director

“It feels so good to be working with you guys again!”

Scott S.Director of Administration and Finance

“I was introduced to O’Design during our conference planning process as I wasn’t aware that hotels allowed outside AV firms to provide this service for conferences. O’Design competitively bid our AV services to four (4) vendors allowing us to find the best vendor at a competitive price and they oversaw the AV scope of services from start to finish. This was one of the best decisions we made for our conference and one that I would recommend to anyone seeking to save time, money and resources of volunteer planning committee members. Their service was EXCELLENT and I would hire them again in a heartbeat!”

Sandy B.Director, Asset Services

“O’Design has changed my approach to meeting planning and especially to onsite management. I thought audio visual was an area that had me perpetually trapped; I thought I had no choice but to use the in-house company and to pay whatever fees and follow whatever guidelines they provided. The team at O’Design acts as my personal liaisons and translators between the venue and AV companies, and the assigned event producer becomes my capable, point person onsite. It takes away the stress of the unpredictable and keeps me from having to run from room to room to deal with AV issues.”

Tina G.Executive Director

“Their upfront consulting services are at no cost to your budget and they can save you a ton of time, effort and money. They saved my client over $100K!”

Vickie C.Senior Director, Global Accounts

“I have worked with Stephen O’Connor and his experienced and knowledgeable team for a couple of years now. It’s critically important to me that the partners I choose to align with and introduce to my clients emulate the level of professionalism, experience, and service our organization strives to provide. The O’Design team has been an outstanding asset and partner. They add tremendous value to my clients’ event planning process through their knowledge, expertise, and negotiation strength when it comes to all things AV. My clients feel more protected with a partner like O’Design in their court.”

Gina V.Vice President, Global Accounts

“Working with O’Design took so much more off my plate than I could have imagined! Not only did our event look more professional than we had expected but the team was early, on time, and extremely flexible, not to mention professional. All bumps were dealt with quickly and easily with record responses, it really felt like one big team. Planning went smoothly and helped us set expectations and deal with unforeseen issues (like a flood two weeks before our event!) without panic. Our attendees were blown away and I cannot imagine creating our event without them in the future.”

Jennie E.Alliance Constituent Coordinator

“O’Design’s AV presentation was very informative and eye opening. As a Meeting Planner, I know AV can be one of the most expensive aspects of an event especially when dealing with labor pricing. O’Design’s presentation gave helpful tips and items to look out for when dealing with AV pricing. It also gave an update on the state of AV and pricing since the pandemic. Would attend another seminar with O’Design again!”

Angie B.Event Planner

“Wow! O’Design really peeled back the curtain and shared so many tangible tips that every planner and supplier should know… This is information everyone in the meeting professional world should know!”

Jan S.Director of Education

“O’Design has helped tremendously in improving my clients Production & AV needs by lower liabilities/risk and ensuring bottom line cost come in at or under budget. They add value to my full meetings solutions and help further support my client’s needs.”
