Events: Considering Technology When Planning Your Event

Pre-Event

We offer information to consider on the technology side of your planning.

If you are planning an event on or off campus, we are here to assist you with evaluating your needs and providing quality service for your event.

It is important that you contact CETS a minimum of 10 days prior to your event concerning your Audio/Visual needs and Technician availability.
