D A V Productions, a Las Vegas-based full-service production company, announced today it will donate a portion of profits from all relocated conventions and meetings originally scheduled in New Orleans.

September 6, 2005 -- D A V Productions announced today it will donate a portion of profits from all relocated conventions and meetings originally scheduled in New Orleans.

Last year, New Orleans was the fifth-most-popular convention and tradeshow destination in the United States. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina's devastation, some Gulf Coast tradeshows and conferences are being cancelled, but many are moving to other cities. Convention managers and meeting organizers are scrambling to relocate their events, potentially generating windfall profits for convention-related businesses in other cities.

“We want to do everything we can to help those who need to relocate,” says D A V Productions COO and part owner Ben Brownback, “but capitalizing on this tragedy would be wrong.

“We’re prepared to partner with event planners and get them what they need — even on short notice. And we’re committed to giving a portion of the profits back to the people of New Orleans who have been devastated by this tragedy.”

“Picking up last-minute events relocated from New Orleans will be a lot of work," says D A V Productions director of sales, Ryan Legue. “But we recently completed a new production facility that’s doubled our capacity, so we’re ready for the challenge.”

D A V Productions is a Las Vegas based production company, serving the video and media needs of agencies and corporate clients, as well as the staging, labor and coordination requirements of tradeshows, conventions and special events. With a recent $1 million investment in cutting-edge audio, lighting and video technology, D A V Productions provides one of the best, most complete production solutions in Las Vegas.
