"Seasoned" Executive Producer

After being honorably discharged from the United States Navy, Dave Barrett earned a bachelor of arts degree from the University of South Florida, where he graduated with honors in the mass communication curriculum and received the Bernstein Memorial Photography Scholarship. His area of focus was in the visual communications sequence.

With 30+ years of experience in the meeting and live event business, Dave’s passion and attention to detail is unmatched in the industry. He was the genesis of, and built, the Creative Show Services (CS2) division at Audio Visual Innovations, where he was employed for 17 years. As AVmedia's “seasoned” executive producer, Dave is responsible for overall event production, focusing on creative development and media production, show logistics, set design and fabrication, and staging with state-of-the-art presentation technology.

With his ability to provide amazing outcomes, Dave has been fortunate to partner with companies and associations such as: Black & Decker, Northern Telcom, DeWalt, BICSI, Molsen Golden, Hyatt Corporation, STERIS Corporation,  Lucent Technologies, 1st Global Research & Consulting, Carpet One, Flooring America, Chase Manhattan, Black Knight Financial Services, The Consortium, Kiewit Infrastructure, Weekenders, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, National Property Management Association,             Kimberly-Clark and  many more.

Built on the essentials of a what a great Creative Services and Production partner should be, Dave's goal is to accelerate the shift towards a new dialog with clients — changing the way customers think about their events.
