Louisiana State Inspector General
I first met Jerry 10 years ago at the Louisiana District Attorneys Association summer conference. Since that time, we have worked together 2-3 times per year at LDAA conferences, where I teach and also provide music for special events such as prayer breakfasts. These conferences are attended by hundreds of people, and Jerry and his crew do a superb job with audio visual. Having been a musician myself for over 30 years, I know a pro sound engineer when I see one, and Jerry definitely fits that bill. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, and determined to make sure that everyone has whatever they need. Audio Visual Group has top of the line gear and great expertise. On top of all that, Jerry is a good friend and colleague. I am glad to enthusiastically recommend AVG to anyone with audio visual needs.

Awesome service! Jerry and his crew travel everywhere with our Association handling our A/V needs. They’re like having additional staff…no request is too large or too small. I highly recommend Jerry and his crew!

I have worked with Jerry Hafner and his team at Audio Visual Group numerous times on various events with audiences ranging from 100-600+. Jerry is a pleasure to work with and always has the client’s best interests at heart. He and his team will always go above and beyond to provide great service and to give their clients the absolute best value in a very competitive market. I have recommended his work to colleagues numerous times and will continue to do so.

Director, Meeting & Exhibits, Talley Management Group
On behalf of our client, comparative and International Education Society, and all of us with Talley Management Group, THANK YOU! Without consistent and constant attention to service, our conference would not have been the success it was. Your prompt responses to requests, attention to details, and pleasant demeanor made the experience even better than we expected.

The Audio Visual Group was the best AV team that we worked with over the past 15 years of running our conference. We had some sophisticated AV needs at our most recent conference and they handled them with ease. Jerry and his team are true professionals that are friendly, flexible, super knowledgeable and provide excellent pricing. We plan on using them every year going forward!

Senior Conference Manager IU Conferences
I worked with Jerry and AV Group for 3 consecutive years for the Comparative and International Education Society Conference. The conference is made up of 35 concurrent sessions as well as general sessions. Jerry and his crew handled the AV needs of the conference effortlessly which given the number of concurrent sessions and minimal turn time between sessions is no small feat!
But beyond the technical proficiency, I enjoy working with Jerry not only because I find him personable and professional, but because I respect his customer service model in that he does not “nickel and dime” his clients throughout the conference. If the needs of the conference are properly identified from the start and there is not a drastic change in the scope of the job Jerry doesn’t believe in changing more than what he originally quoted. He doesn’t run the type of AV company that charges you for every extension cord you may need at the last minute. If he has the equipment with him onsite then he’s happy to help you reach your goal without breaking your budget. Considering that many of my clients are on fairly strict budgets this is highly valuable to me.
Jerry is a dependable, ethical and all around wonderful partner to work with when it comes to pulling off a successful conference.

I have worked with Jerry and his wonderful team at Audio Visual Group for a few years now. With all the different stresses a conference can bring, AV is NEVER a worry or a concern thanks to Jerry! Jerry is punctual, reliant, and genuinely kind. I couldn’t imagine a conference without Jerry!

ISHI Symposium Manager
I’ve worked with Jerry from the AV Group for about 20 years. We partner with them every year for our symposium (around 5 days with a large general session and 3 days of breakout sessions). I would not hesitate to recommend Jerry and his crew. They do a great job, have really good equipment and provide great service. So- 5 stars from me.
