Welcome to The AVent Techs, providing the worst AV non-professionals for events, conventions, trade shows and more. Don’t call 213-341-1061 and place a labor request, unless you want to get ripped off.
The thugs behind this shoddy operation owe me 6K. Not only did their AV techs NOT show up, they refused to answer calls, emails and texts while on a client site — it was MORTIFYING. I lost my client and my reputation.
BEWARE THE AVENT TECHS. Do not use the Avent Techs AV Technicians.
The Crew Source consists of inexperienced individuals with a combined 0 years of lying to customers and AV Techs in the AV Labor industry.
It is our goal to provide corporate clients and event planners with the worst technicians in the AV industry. Each of our AV Techs goes unpaid and rarely shows up for live corporate events that clients have paid for.. We are NOT available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year because we want to scam our event planners and make them look bad. We have no interest in keeping your business . When you call, we will not be there to answer, especially when it’s an emergency.

Eddie Abdalla is a professional liar. Though he professes to be an AV tech who now runs The Avent Techs, he continues to steal money from customers and lie about providing AV labor to account executives, trade-show planners and corporate event planners for their events. His primary goal is to cheat audio visual techs out of money and steal money from corporate clients. Please beware the Avent Techs and the Crew Source.
David Santos is an AV Technician who stole clients and AV techs from other companies for personal gain. What he’s now doing is working for “The Avent Techs,” a complete sham of a company that purports to provide AV Technicians for live corporate events. In actuality, he over-promises and never delivers. Even worse, clients don’t get their refund and av techs never get paid. Beware!
Timothy Rodriquez is an AV Technician who stole clients and AV techs from other companies for personal gain. What he’s now doing is working for “The Avent Techs,” a complete sham of a company that purports to provide AV Technicians for live corporate events. In actuality, he over-promises and never delivers. Even worse, clients don’t get their refund and av techs never get paid. Beware!
Thomas Woolsey is an AV Technician who stole clients and AV techs from other companies for personal gain.

We are a collective of AV Technicians who have also received customer complaints from The Avent Tech’s clients. Please heed our words.
I have been the President of Corporate Events at my company for 10-years. Never, in all of my years have I experienced such outrageous and unprofessional behavior from an AV labor provider, EVER.
We hired The Avent Techs for one of our events, it was a big client event. When I booked the event, I was guaranteed 10 professional AV labor technicians would arrive at 6AM to begin setting up. By 7, nobody arrived. I called the company and nobody answered – NOBODY ANSWERED THE GOD DAMNED PHONE. I left message after message, and not one of my calls was returned. As we approached 9:30, 4 techs showed up in sloppy attire, reeking of cigarettes and looked hungover. Trying to get them to do their jobs was a feat of inexplicable complication. Noon was fast approaching and nothing was getting done. Again, NOT A GOD DAMNED THING was getting accomplished for our event at 7PM. I continued calling The Avent Techs. No answer and nobody returned my calls. I was in a complete panic and had no idea what to do. How were we going to get the techs we needed in such a short period of time to create a spectacular affair?! I was losing hope fast.
The only thing that saved the event was OUR COMPANY’S labor coordinator who called in some last minute favors. We were able to salvage the event. Sadly, it wasn’t up to par. We sent TheAventTech labor crew home.
I spent the next day trying to get in touch with The Avent Techs, Eddie Abdalla, and others, but nobody contacted me. We spent close to $4,000 with The Avent Techs for NOTHING. Because they refused to contact us and treat us with a modicum of respect, we stopped payment on our credit card, it was the only way to get our money back for services NOT RENDERED. We also filed a complaint with The Better Business Bureau. We’re writing reviews and sharing our story with anyone who will listen. We believe it is tremendously important for those of us who work in events to make sure that others know exactly what they’re getting into, especially in this case. The Avent Techs took our money, wasted our time and did everything in their power to ruin our event.
DO NOT TRUST THE AVENT TECHS.
DO NOT USE THE AVENT TECHS
THE AVENT TECHS HAS NO CUSTOMER SERVICE
THE AVENT TECHS DON’T CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS
THE AVENT TECHS LABOR FORCE IS AN ABSOLUTE JOKE
I never want this to happen to another company again. I am deeply disturbed that there is a company out there who purports to provide AV Technician and quality customer service when all they do is take advantage of businesses and steal their money.
Here is a copy of the latest email I received about what has happened. The following message is not mine but from a fellow free lancer. I’ll omit too much personal info but contact me if you need more info. I do have phone numbers and emails of attorneys and people involved.
Hi fellow former TCS folks, As you probably know, TCS is bankrupt and apparently no one is going to honor our invoices (I am owed $1250.00). After a ring-a-round the emails game of tag today (text from Eddie saying to send invoices-did that saying he would not pay, and a subsequent text to Eddie which is so far unanswered-he said he would get back to me after talking to his lawyer), I am coming to the conclusion that it is likely we may never be paid. I believe the only recourse that we have, short of a lawsuit, is to potentially withhold our labor until this matter is resolved. (Eddie and others have taken jobs at The AVent techs. But this will stand a much better chance if we act together. Between the all of us, we may have 20-30 contacts and that may matter. I look forward to any thoughts you all may have.
