We’re also agile and happy to assist only where you need us most. We have always been a turnkey production company, your total solution for production services. Tell us what you need, we’ll make it happen. And, we’ll have some fun along the way.

Our Services

We provide a wide array of event production, installation, and labor services

We often say, “we’re only as good as our last show.” We have assisted some of our best clients in acquiring awards such as Pro Awards, MAAW Globes Awards and EX Awards. You can take comfort knowing that a win for you is a win for us.

Virtual Events

Take your in-person event online no matter your event! We provide fully customized, broadcast quality production and a team of professionals to support your event.

Experiential Events

Your brand is your identity. It’s what makes you stand out from the rest. We understand that better than anyone else and have executed some of the largest, most successful experiential events in marketing history.

Press Events

We have the equipment, technology and experience to make every media event go as planned. The only thing you’ll need to worry about is making tomorrow’s headlines.

General Sessions

Whether you have 500 or 10,000 guests, we’ll help you excite them and keep them engaged with the latest audio/visual bells and whistles.

Business Meetings

Planning for a big meeting is stressful enough. Leave the technical needs to us. Need multiple cameras? An eighty-foot screen? Whatever it takes, we’ve got it.

Trade Shows

Absolute is an approved, AV and Production Contractor at McCormick Place and Navy Pier, and we’re trusted at hundreds of locations across the country. Whether we manage your entire show or supplement with individual services, you can count on us to be your single resource and navigate you through two of Chicago’s largest event spaces and the most complicated venues around the world.

General Contracting

At locations like McCormick Place or Navy Pier and lots of venues nationwide, you can assign us as your General Contractor for your small Vendor Exhibit Area to go along with your Meetings, Events, General Sessions, and Breakouts. If all of that sounds complicated, it’s because it is. Don’t worry. We know all the rules, regulations, and legislation work rules, that can sometimes be confusing. We’re here for you!

A/V Installation

Let us help you with all aspects of installation large and small.  Our team of experts can take you from concept through documentation, equipment procurement, construction and completion. Already have a team of contractors? Lean on our years of experience to consult with you to make sure your needs are met in the most efficient and cost-effective manner while providing a robust and future-proof system.

Creative Technologies

Video mapping. Image blending. Interactive displays. We have the best technology at our fingertips. You’ll leave boring behind and produce a snooze-free, energizing event at a price that’s equally exciting.

Marketing Events

Cross-country bus tour? Big-tent event? A beach party for thousands? We have experience producing them all. No matter how challenging the idea or tight the budget, we’ll make it work.

Video Production

From script writing and studio selection to filming and editing, our in-house video team provides the complete package. We’ll work within your budget to ensure you come away with a brilliant, broadcast-quality video.

Whatever your event, we can make it happen.

What People Say

How We Work

People

We believe an organization is only as good as its people. It just so happens the people at Absolute are the best at what they do. Our technicians, designers and managers have the encyclopedic knowledge, hands-on experience and problem-solving know-how that make every project effortless. Our passion for excellence fuels us, and our collaborative approach makes us feel like an extension of your team.

Process

We are transparent every step of the way. From pre-production planning and budgeting to vendor management and day-of execution, we strive to eliminate guesswork and ensure a stress-free event. Our digital planning tools create clear, constant communication between all event planning personnel, and our meticulous CAD-drawn plans guarantee an event tailored to your needs and everything you envisioned.

Though we offer a full menu of production services, we are nimble and can easily jump in wherever you need us most. Have your show planned and just need labor? No problem. Have a sound system but no video capabilities? We’ve got you covered.

Relationships

We surround ourselves with nothing but the best. With over two decades of experience in Chicago and across the globe, we’ve built thousands of relationships with the A-team of industry professionals. We bring these relationships to our customers, improving efficiencies and providing big-time savings.
