Stuart Silver

Executive Vice President

Stuart Silver serves as President of AVT Event Technologies. In this role, Silver is responsible for leading the organization in its mission to deliver exceptional service and add value to relationships with its hospitality partners. Since founding United States Audio-Visuals (USAV) on Hilton Head Island in 1974, Mr. Silver has been a pioneer and national leader in the audiovisual industry. USAV was one of the first companies to provide exclusive in-hotel services to the hospitality industry in hotels, resorts, convention and conference centers. His focus and emphasis on quality service and client support allowed him to rapidly expand operations around the country. His prior experience as an Army Infantry Officer and Television Producer/Director at Ft. Benning, Georgia enabled him to incorporate video technologies into meetings and events from the earliest years of USAV. USAV was acquired by Presentation Services in 1994. Mr. Silver remained with Presentation Services through acquisitions by VAH/Caribiner/AVSC until 2002, serving as a Senior Vice President. His area of focus was national business development and managing client relationships. His knowledge of both AV and hospitality industries, his focus on dedication to customer service and support, and his passion for quality have enabled him to remain successful in a very competitive marketplace for more than 30 thirty years. The Reunion with Eddy Eisenberg brings together industry executives who are proven performers. Their focus and that of every AVT team member continues to be providing exceptional service and advanced technology solutions, while generating significant revenues to share with their hospitality partners.
