Your Technology Failed. Now What Do You Do?

Technology is sometimes the leading instigator at events or meetings. When the Internet connection is not strong enough or the power goes out what can you do?

What happens if the power goes out or the equipment is not working properly. We at DCCH will help you by supplying a support piece of equipment and switch it out as quickly as we can. It is always good to do sound checks to help prevent a last-minute issue. If the power goes out, be prepared to continue with the presentation without the equipment. So, it is good to know your subject matter real well for the just in-case scenario.

If the speaker’s hardware is incompatible with our equipment what can you do? Bring a couple of dongles – the white adaptors that connect Apple products to projectors as well as extra slide advancers.  If the files are incompatible, they can be converted to pdf’s.

As with all technology mishaps, be flexible and remain calm. Think on your feet and know that the AV team at DCCH will be there to assist your needs.


My stay was delightful and very relaxing and staff were very welcoming. Thanks for everything.

I just want to say THANK YOU for everything. I thought the meetings went really well, the guests seemed to enjoy their rooms and stay, the food was fabulous, and we were well taken care of if we needed something. We didn’t have to want or wait on anything!! I have to admit I was very impressed!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and for taking such good care of the team, coaches, and support staff this past weekend. The trip went very smooth and the team had their first victory over Millikin in 40+ years! We really appreciate your hard work and wanted to extend our sincere appreciation to you and your staff that made everything possible. Thank you again for your hospitality.
