Case Studies and Testimonials
With the sudden shift to the red traffic light setting at the end of January, a mere week out from our face-to-face conference, we had to cancel our event which left us looking for support to transition our annual awards online. We approached Vidcom for their robust reputation in the industry for delivering exceptional service and technical expertise.

In just over three weeks, Vidcom helped us to coordinate and deliver our game plan and create an audience experience that was on-brand and engaging for our viewers, who tuned in from all over the world, as far as the UK!

To make the planning more complicated, I (the main client contact) was liaising from Texas, so Vidcom adjusted to my time zone to help make the planning process smooth.

The virtual event went extremely well. Our convenors, speakers, chairs, and attendees have all provided very positive feedback to the event, even if there was hesitation in the beginning to the change.
Hats off to Patrick, Luke, Joisha, and Fletch, they did a great job, and having the four techs was perfect for this event. They were calm, polite, and had a great rapport with the chairs and presenters. The couple of little glitches were fixed quickly and professionally and having the comms via the green room was easy to get these resolved.
Thank you to the entire Hamilton team (including you Jason), you all did a fantastic job in making this a huge success for our client. We look forward to working aside the Vidcom team again soon!

Vidcom provided us with the technical knowhow and all the platforms and software needed to deliver a webinar for our client during lockdown. The service was fantastic - the live webinar and recorded end product was professional and very easy to use. Our clients were impressed with the ease of use for both the livestreaming for our audience and the recording and support from the presenters. We were able to deliver this online event with a very short lead time and nothing was a problem for the Vidcom team. We will be delivering more sessions in the coming weeks and have no hesitation to recommend Vidcom

Rowan and the team were very respectful and professional. The LED wall is nowhere close to the drop down made a huge difference to our viewing experience and the audio, flawless. The night was a huge success and this is the first time that I didn’t have any issues with the AV. So thank you Jason for all your patience, professionalism, and for ensuring that our experience is one that we will truly remember and be grateful about. It felt good to be well looked after!

"The night ran perfectly! The videos were all great and made a big impact. I had multiple guests comment on how beautiful the room looked. I think the lighting was a key part of that. We are all very happy with the quality of the AV and lighting. The lighting looked amazing and really brought the venue - both inside and out - to life. It was a pleasure working with Bea and her team. They were happy to change things and offer advice where needed. The team on the night were happy and relaxed. They played a big part in making our event such a great success."

"It was great working with Jason, David, and the team. I really appreciated them being so agile on the day/evening and enabling us to make last minute changes to ensure the event ran efficiently, particularly around the videos and presentation. The room looked really great and the screens worked well in terms of being able to have the content on the screens as well as camera to screen."

"Our experience with Vidcom was excellent. The AV was a major contributor to the success of the '50 Years of Rallying' event and delivered everything we wanted and more! Every aspect of what Vidcom did was perfect - from the sponsor area illumination, the lighting ambience, the spot light, and all activities as they were required. The AV solutions far exceeded our expectations - the best part was how easy the Vidcom team were to work with and how quickly they understood what we were trying to achieve. I cannot stress highly enough how delighted we were with Vidcom, their team along with Dave Hedge made the evening what it was - so well done and thank you!"

"I just wanted to express my immense gratitude to Vidcom for their outstanding effort in assisting us to deliver our CINZ conference successfully. I have enjoyed every minute of working with Vidcom's team who understood our requirements precisely and came up with creative solutions. Luke deserves special commendation for being a super star on conference days. Special thanks to Bea and team for delivering fantastic results and working around our budget restrictions without affecting the quality of the result. I will be happy to use Vidcom for future AV requirements where possible. The feedback on the event has been fantastic. We have already had a PCO write to us suggesting that since attending they can't wait to promote Hamilton as a conference option.

Thank you again for the dedication and the hard work, and I will not hesitate to recommend Vidcom to anyone who is looking for an AV specialist."

"Thanks to Vidcom's sponsorship and AV services, Hospice Waikato was able to tell a very real and compelling story of Hospice Waikato's Rainbow Place. This enabled us to engage with our audience in a powerful way. Vidcom's services were delivered at all times with professionalism, which contributed to the smooth running and success of the evening. The use of the wide screen showcased the videos with a higher impact this year. We are already discussing ideas for next year's theme and look forward to working with Vidcom again on this exciting and rewarding project."

"What can I say? You guys were absolutely legendary at MIB. I could not have done it without either of you. The evening turned out to be the event I am most proud of in my career to-dateand that is in no-small-part down to you both. The team as a whole were fantastic.

The purpose was to educate, as well as entertain and raise funds for the ongoing research into Parkinson's. It is great to observe the passion and capability of the whole event personnel. The generosity of our sponsors ensured we had a large offering of fundraising items and our auction, both silent and live, was extremely successful. We had a major donation of $25k which gave us a big kick start as well as the BNZ contributing $25k which covered the meal. It is only through people like yourselves supporting us that we can achieve our objective of 'No Dream Too Big' and we are well on the way to raising $1m for Parkinson's research.

Once again a heartfelt thanks and enormous regards"

"Recently I had the pleasure of dealing with the Team at Vidcom who were recommended to me by the Events Manager at Crowne Plaza for any Audio Visual requirements, and boy am I glad he did.

From the beginning I received prompt service along with valuable advice. To top that off, the team went above and beyond my expectations by tirelessly testing the equipment linking to our counterparts in the UK, well after business hours the day before. Again on the day of the event hours before the start, the team were testing just to ensure that we double checked flawless communication between ourselves and the UK."

"The AV was integral to the smooth running of our event. Without seamless AV, an event can turn on its head and become an absolute nightmare!
Vidcom were extremely accommodating and flexible where necessary and prepared to work with DairyNZ to test various presentations in the lead-up to the Conference.
Even best made plans sometimes change last minute, and Vidcom were able to adapt to these changes which was much appreciated!"

I would also like to mention that Luke was fantastic on Saturday going out of his way to help with the little things that made our event run so well, also giving some added suggestions to make the setup look even better.

"Feedback received from the client was very positive, who commented that the planning through to the execution left her very happy.
Mention was made of the new wide screen material which showcased the videos in better quality this year and was noticed by organisers. Also acknowledged were the projections on the side walls which brought lighting in to fit the graphics/look of the event giving it a light and modern feel.

Already, ideas surrounding next year's theme have been discussed so we look forward to another exciting challenge."
