The Knoxville Convention Center has picked an Oak Ridge company to provide audio and visual services for its events.
M&M Productions USA was selected from a field of three companies, a press release said.
“We are thrilled to have this local group providing world-class audio-visual service to our clients,” Knoxville Convention Center General Manager Mary Bogert said. “They have a fabulous reputation and will bring some new and exciting ideas to the table.”
M&M Productions offers a wide variety of services, with expertise in lighting, audio, streaming video, slide and video production and hi-definition broadcasting, according to a press release from Knoxville public relations firm Moxley Carmichael.
The company also offers custom stage sets, choreography, and event management services.
The release said M&M Productions is a four-time Telly Award-winning company and the largest audio/visual rental company in the East Tennessee region.
The company helped disseminate messages from the media in Japan to the rest of the world during the March 2011 tsunami through video streaming at the CDC Nuclear Summit in Atlanta.
“Nearly 90 percent of our business is out of state,” M&M Productions USA Founder and President Mike Brown said. “We are thrilled to be able to bring our experience and services to Knoxville.”
A former Knoxville firefighter, Brown said his company is the largest producer of student events in the country and does a lot of work for Oak Ridge Associated Universities locally and in Washington. D.C.
