Rotary brings together people of action from all continents and cultures who develop and implement sustainable, community-driven projects that fight disease, promote peace, provide clean water, support education, save mothers and children, grow local economies and protect the environment. The membership service organization’s 1.4 million members use their professional backgrounds, diverse perspectives, and the power of their global connections to change the world for the better. Rotary’s conventions serve as a hub for members and participants to connect and learn from each other and a range of experts on how to take action to address issues in their communities.

As a certified B Corporation, AV1 has demonstrated its commitment to using business as a force for good.

“We are thrilled to have won the bid to provide production support for Rotary’s international convention in Melbourne. It is an honour to work with a fellow purpose-driven organisation on this significant event,” said Keith Wootton, Managing Director of AV1.

Dylan Batterham, AV1’s Melbourne Producer, added, “Our team is excited to help bring Rotary’s vision to life across four incredible live event days.”
