WHO WE ARE

At Relevant Audio + Visual, we’re passionate perfectionists when it comes to creating memorable, impactful experiences through audio and visual solutions. We believe cutting-edge, professional event experiences matter. They engage your guests and reinforce your message, moving people in the desired direction. It’s more than just sound and lights: it’s a powerful, emotional communication tool and an extension of your brand promise to your audience.

Our team of experts is dedicated to creating a memorable experience for all our clients, from a small speaking gig to a rock concert to a large conference featuring speakers from across the country. No detail is too small when it comes to creating an experience that helps you reach your event’s goals.

One of our biggest motivations for the work we do is a larger sense of purpose. We see all our work, be it within the church or for other events, as a way to glorify God through the talents and abilities He’s given us. We’re thankful every day for the work we do, the clients we serve, and the opportunity we have to partner alongside them.
