Corporate Overview

In early 2020, we aligned our portfolio of companies under a new master brand and assumed the name Encore.

With a global footprint reaching more than 20 countries, we haveexperienced tremendous growth in recent years, extending the solutions we provide customers to create event experiences. The company has built a strong portfolio of event experience capabilities with PSAV’s acquisition of Encore Event Technologies and other leading brands such as Hargrove, Eclipse, Freeman AV Canada, Hawthorn, KFP and FMAV. This moveunified the brands to more accurately depict the combined companies’ industry leadership, end-to-end event capabilities, and service excellence.
