Our Services

Award Winning Events

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Trade Shows

Absolute is an approved, AV and Production Contractor at McCormick Place and Navy Pier. 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.

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.

General Contracting

At McCormick Place or Navy Pier, 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!

Capabilities

Our 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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

Testimonials

Experiential Marketing

Charlie Nicosia and his team at Absolute Production Services have introduced our industry to Experiential Marketing. The underground construction industry hasn’t typically utilized video marketing due to long standing relationships with their customers. Absolute walked us through every aspect of the “how to” in making video’s that would depict the true inside story or our company.

We successfully completed several videos that assisted our customers with their safety and quality messaging. What I appreciated most about working with Charlie and his team was their accessibility, professionalism, and their ability to deliver a quality product on time and within our budget. I’m looking forward to our next project with Absolute.”

Great Customer Service

We have partnered with Absolute Production Services for several years for our North American based events. CJ Nicosia and team not only provide high quality audio visual services, but great customer service. We view them as an extension of our team, as they participate in numerous pre-planning calls leading up to our events, site visits and also provide a superior level of service on-site. Their knowledge and highly skilled staff ensure our events come off seamless and professional from every aspect of A/V. The partnership formed between Westcon-Comstor and Absolute Production Services holds great value from my perspective. They are the first partner I call when planning an event.
