Services

Convention Supervision


Preparation before an event guarantees its success. But if there is no one to supervise the activities during the convention, it is very possible that things will not go as planned. That is why, here at Expert’ease, we have a list of experienced supervisors that will be prepared for any contingencies, which as you probably know, are sometimes quite surprising!

Technical Direction


You have your suppliers and all the right ideas, but all that’s missing is someone to send you in the right direction? Our technical direction services will adjust to scale in order to deliver all your projects with the utmost success. Our flexibility and expertise will ensure that your events are a great success.

Event Management


Your gala is taking on unexpected proportions!! Do you have many presenters, artists, recipients, and a group of technicians waiting to be directed? You need an event manager. Your appointed event manager will take care of directing all the staff and work closely with the caterers, to avoid having a main dish served 45min late. Moreover, our team will put together a written schedule in order to avoid surprises and respect the order of events.

Video and Multimedia Production


Nothing is left to chance: a product launch video, a web page announcement to promote your event, a souvenir video of your convention or gala, a video shoot from 3,000km away, the production of a logo for your event or a loop of sponsors to be displayed on screens throughout the evening. These are some of the additional services at which we excel. Let us know your needs and we will return to you with ideas created specifically for you. We will adapt to your budget. Surrounded by a team of experts, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. Your imagination is our creation.

Coordination and Technical Logistics During Events


A plenary session, 15 breakout rooms, 200 speakers! For many, this would be an enormous challenge. Our responsibility is to coordinate tactfully to ensure that the hotel or convention center, as well as the attendees and organizers be synchronized for the success of this event. Our coordination and logistics services with astound you.

We offer a service that coordinates presentations directly with attendees on-site and presentation management via USB keys or a computer server. Moreover, we prepare floorplans with the room capacity in CAD format to guarantee the amount of available space and obtain the approval needed with the event location, and also with the fire department if needed.
