“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

“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!”

“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.”

Joe V.Vice President & Managing Director

From start to finish, O’Design made the process of our first virtual conference easy!  There is no detail too small that they did not think of, they were always available to answer our questions, and helped us successfully navigate this new world.  Their on-site support was stellar, ensuring all conference attendees had a positive conference experience.  We received numerous compliments and feedback from attendees, too! We could not be happier with our experience; we will use them again for future virtual events.”

Sara H.Executive Vice President

“I needed a strong tech team to partner with for my first virtual event.  O’Design took the lead and guided me through the whole process with less than a month to plan the event.  My assigned team was always accessible and answered my copious questions quickly and clearly.  They also were accommodating to meet the needs of my international speakers by holding multiple rehearsals.”

Gretchen H.Administrative Director

“The O’Design team exemplifies extreme competence in the audio visual field and I couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with them. Stephen, Aimee and Brett are incredibly knowledgeable, organized, thoughtful and professional and working with them made my life as a planner much easier. They guided me through the entire process of AV needs and staging and also went out of their way to go above and beyond to ensure an amazing event. I hope to never have to plan a large event without the assistance of O’Design.”

Kelly M.Director, Operations & Member Services

“The Event Team is extremely attentive to detail, organized and works very hard on gaining strong relationships and forming partnerships. They are friendly, loyal and respond in a timely manner. I have loved working with O’Design over the years.”
