The audio/visual (AV) technician helps provide needed equipment for events and may operate that equipment as well. The technician also helps maintain all gear and keeps specialized equipment organized. Companies and business that host events and conventions (and the technical providers that work with these venues) are the typical employers for AV technicians. Many larger hotels host events and presentations on a daily basis and have an AV technician on staff, and many school districts employ AV technicians as well.
