At the third annual Rental and Staging Network (RSN) Leadership Symposium, at the Omni Houston Westside Hotel from July 23-26, members from 22 companies across the U.S. had the unique opportunity to network with the industry’s leading audio visual equipment and technology providers in a “laser” focused setting.
Themed “Focused and Getting Things Done,” the Leadership Symposium affords RSN members, representatives from live event rental and staging companies, the opportunity to share growth strategies and best practices for sales, operations and executive management. Seven vendors, including Nationwide, AV Stumpfl, Christie, IML, Ingram Micro,L-Acoustics and LED-3, were given an opportunity to showcase their capabilities in a live setting in front of key purchase decision makers.
In addition to vendor networking, the Leadership Symposium also features breakout sessions divided into three groups of attendees — executive management, operations and sales. Breakouts are used for group discussion around best practices and critical issues that impact the companies’ daily operations.
Since its inception in 2007, RSN has aimed to bring the industry’s best live event rental and staging companies together to provide nationwide service with the benefit of local contacts, eliminating the need for clients to spend valuable time verifying the competence and capabilities of multiple companies. Additionally, RSN is a proactive resource for the principals and staff of its non-competitive members for training, exchanging knowledge, enhancing professionalism and engaging in business referrals and cross-rental opportunities. RSN also has a Vendor Partner Program that offers vendors opportunities to network and present to members at three meetings each year.
