SAN DIEGO, Calif.— November 2, 2015 —AV Concepts, a leader in creative and technical event solutions, today announced Co-Founder and Vice President Fred Mandrick’s retirement.
“Fred has made a tremendous impact on the company since we founded it together in 1987,” explained Nick Smith, Co-Founder and President of AV Concepts. “He’s been a great partner, a fantastic leader and a highly-technical resource for our clients. But after nearly three decades in the industry, Fred is ready to enjoy some much deserved rest and relaxation.”
Nick bought out Fred’s shares of the company last month and will remain AV Concepts’ President, continuing to oversee day-to-day operations and the overall strategy and direction of the company.
“While certainly a big transition, I’m excited about this opportunity because it comes at an interesting time in the company’s trajectory towards achieving major growth,” Nick explained. “Having a single vision for the company will help us achieve a new future for AV Concepts that’s focused on strengthening our core capabilities, reinvesting in areas that give us a competitive edge in the industry, and redefining our service offerings.”
Event planners constantly ask whose event solutions they should buy, but the first question they should be asking themselves, is what value they’re looking to get from their AV provider.

There’s been a lot of talk recently about 4K Ultra HD, and the potential impact it will have on the events industry. But all of this 4K talk can be difficult to understand, especially since the term is really more of a home theatre concept that’s being used to give planners a way to relate and conceptualize the influence 4K technology will have on their live events.
