MPISSN  is excited to welcome three thought leaders from the Sacramento Area who will be generously sharing their knowledge on DE&I and how it can show up in the work we do within our industry.  Each one of our panelists will have an opportunity to discuss actionable items that can make a difference in the community whether it be catering orders, AV teams that travel with them and how to make inclusive events.

  1. How to diversify your supplier list
  2. What diversifying your leadership means and its benefits
  3. Ideas to engage diverse audiences to amplify your meetings and events

dDeryl Gamon's started as a freelance technician, then Deryl began to work for the national AV company, Projection Presentation Technology in Sacramento. He worked as a delivery driver, lead technician and eventually Assistant Director for Projection at the Sacramento Convention Center. Later, when Projection began to lose business and ultimately lost the Convention Center account, Deryl decided to start his own company, Sights & Sound AV. He started his company out of a garage, slowly and steadily building up clientele both locally and nationwide. After acting as an equipment supplier to the company Jeff Hess worked for at the Sacramento Convention Center, it was clear that Deryl's integrity and focus on service made for a natural partnership.
