The Arizona Super Bowl XLII Host Committee has awarded the contract for audio visual technical services to Scottsdale-based American Audio Visual Center.

"We chose AAVC because they have a solid reputation of service" said Debbie Wardrop, CEO of the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee. "We know that they will provide the best support for our needs. We look forward to working with them over the next year as we prepare for Super Bowl XLII."

This contract award follows a series of successful events AAVC had produced for the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee in 2006 and is the third Super Bowl that its management has supported in the last ten years. It is anticipated that the number of special events, meetings, parties, and need for audiovisual technical support will increase dramatically in 2007 leading up to the Game which will be played on February 3, 2008 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

"AAVC had completed several projects for us in 2006," said Erin Brin, Vice President of Events for the Arizona Super Bowl XLII Host Committee. "Their detailed event preparation and first-class service make them a quality preferred vendor. When analyzing our audiovisual needs, we can count on AAVC to get the job done."

It is anticipated that the contract with the Super Bowl Host Committee will generate further activity and additional opportunities to work with corporations who stage events surrounding the Super Bowl. "With this contract award, AAVC will move toward joining with other companies who can use our services" said Jim Carlson, President and CEO of American Audio Visual Center. "We are in a unique position because of our company's size, inventory, and excellent reputation at the stadium; therefore we can handle any business that comes our way. Our history with the University of Phoenix Stadium and Super Bowl Host Committee management made this business partnership an easy decision for both sides."

"All of our employees working on Super Bowl business will undergo a special orientation and will have background checks completed in anticipation of the unique security requirements involved in an event receiving this much media attention" adds Jeff Winkler, COO of AAVC.

"We intend to have at least two divisions within the company supporting the Super Bowl project," said AAVC Vice President Doug Hunt. "Team Staging will oversee the larger shows and our rental department will handle most of the press conferences and day to day needs." Hunt has a long history supporting nationally televised events including The Grammy Awards, The Emmy Awards, and for nineteen consecutive years acted as a technical consultant for The Academy Awards.

Founded in 1993, American Audio Visual Center has 32 offices in Arizona, California, Texas and Georgia.
