Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 11, 2015
ON Event Services, LLC (ON) is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of Houston-based Data Display Audio-Visual (DDAV). Finalized in early July, the deal brings together two highly respected live event production companies that serve clients nationally and internationally. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“I cannot tell you how pleased I am with this acquisition,” said ON President and CEO Stan Milner. “Data Display has been in the live event and trade show industries for more than 25 years and has a stellar reputation. They are very well-known for their level of technical expertise as well as their customer service, especially in trade shows, and more specifically, in the oil and gas arena. We’re looking forward to the new opportunities this acquisition presents.”
Founded in 1988 as a computer-based, data-projection company, DDAV has grown into a full-service, audio-visual provider, with a client base ranging from small, not-for-profits to Fortune 500 businesses. Atlanta-based ON (http://www.oneventservices.com) has been a leading provider of audio-visual services for more than three decades and operates two separate divisions:
- ONstage (and Staging Directions) – Focused on live event production and entertainment
- ONsite – Delivers in-house audio-visual service/support as the preferred vendor to hotels and convention centers across America
The acquisition not only expands ON’s geographical footprint, it broadens and diversifies the company’s service offerings. With Data Display’s established position in the oil and gas industry, ON gains a favorable entry point.
“Data Display has such strong brand awareness in the trade show arena and, more specifically within oil and gas, which is their largest market segment,” Milner said. “We want to be able to continue to leverage this attribute as we build on these long-time relationships.”
Collectively, ON now annually supports more than 1,200 live events, more than 50 trade shows, and serves as the preferred in-house provider of audio-visual services for facilities with an aggregate eight million square feet of meeting, convention and exhibit space. ON is also the in-house audio-visual provider in six major concert facilities.
DDAV will operate as “Data Display, a Division of ON Event Services, LLC” and continue to be led by equity members Collin Loewen and Shawn Rockefeller, in conjunction with the leadership of ON Event Services.
With the addition of DDAV, ON now employs more than 240 full-time associates and has offices in 12 cities, including Atlanta (HQ), Birmingham, Charlotte, Greensboro, Houston, Huntsville, Las Vegas, Memphis, Nashville, Orlando, Raleigh and Washington, DC.
