Event Technology Pioneers


We’re pioneers in the event technology industry and are credited with many firsts in the industry. We recognize that event technology is only as good as the people who run it. Our technicians know our equipment better than anybody. We continuously hone our skills through cross-training and participation in technical training on a range of event technologies. We own and meticulously maintain a large inventory of event technologies and regularly add new gear to stay ahead of the curve.

We have the right people operating the right technology to make your event design exactly what you imagined and to ensure you communicate your message to your audience exactly the way you envisioned.

Great Companies Have Great Stories

In 2021, Boston-based AVFX acquired Denver-based CEAVCO. This acquisition combined two powerful event technology companies into one cohesive business, enabling both companies to expand their geographic footprint and better serve our clients across the country.

Both AVFX and CEAVCO were founded by industry thought leaders.

In 1961 Jack Emerson built CEAVCO with the goals of creating a great workplace and providing outstanding customer support. He developed a lifelong reputation for honoring his vision and doing the right thing. Jack's vision is still at the core of CEAVCO's success.

In 1989 Jack's son Matt joined the company as VP of Finance. In 2013 he became the Company's Executive Vice President. Then in 2013, he was named President. Today he is the CEO of AVFX.

In 1981, Murray Lapides founded Media 1, Inc., (now AVFX) to meet the increasing demand for high-quality audio visual and staging services. From the very start, AVFX was client focused, listening to clients, striving to understand the goals they wanted to achieve, and providing exactly what those clients needed.

Murray’s foresight made AVFX first-to-market with many event technologies that have been widely adopted by the industry. For example, AVFX was one of the first companies in the country to use “wow factor” technologies like projection mapping and large flexible LED tile displays to engage and motivate audiences.
