July 07, 2005
Sarasota, FL - The Wedding & Event Videographers Association International (WEVA) has announced that Avid Technology, Inc. has signed-on as a Platinum Sponsor for this year’s landmark 15th Annual Wedding & Event Video Expo (August 8-11, 2005) at the Las Vegas Hilton.
“Our association is pleased that Avid Technology is showing uplifting support for the show that has made wedding & event videographers more successful, year-after-year for well over a decade,” said WEVA International Director of Association Communications Dan Argenas.
“Recognizing that WEVA EXPO attendees are dedicated videographers who want professional system training in order to keep improving their artistry and their business, Avid has planned an all-new and enlarged exhibit for the EXPO’s milestone event," said Argenas. "It will feature hands-on, edit-system training on Avid computer workstations right on the WEVA show floor. The system training is being tailored specifically to professional wedding & event work and will be offered at no charge to registered attendees throughout the two-day WEVA EXPO 2005 Trade Show."
The WEVA EXPO 2005 website now features "The Avid Story" a dynamic and highly-edited, short-form corporate history video that rapidly traces the exciting evolution of the company's groundbreaking solutions.
Tune into the "The Avid Story" now to see how a concept that originated in a garage in Massachusetts in 1987 became the foundation for Avid’s digital media tools, which the company notes are now used in 90% of primetime television shows, 85% of feature films, 80% of commercials, and nearly all of today’s chart-topping pop music hits.
