Founded in 2008, it has been the mission of Orlando Productions to work closely with clients teams to integrate their vision with our technical knowledge and execution for the best experience possible.
From the very beginning, Orlando Productions’ outlook was one of infinite potential – nothing is impossible. Because our Founder and CEO Jesse Durlin began building his company by investing his time, resources, and efforts in understanding our client’s bottom-line needs, while emphasizing their desire to produce engaging events, in only 8 years he has created an international platform with a solid foundation of partnership-based client relationships.
Orlando Productions is a partnership-focused boutique of Audio, Visual, & Lighting tech services offering custom-design solutions for live venues. Specializing in every aspect of the event industry, Orlando Productions uses cutting-edge technology to bring audiences a full-spectrum experience and provide innovative solutions for hosts, speakers, and entertainers wanting to keep their guests engaged.
Our Founder & CEO, Jesse Durlin brings a multitude of experiences in audio visual prior to the start of Orlando Productions. His competitive advantage is to stay ahead of trends through innovation and finding methods for simplifying complex systems. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, Jesse migrated south and stayed not just for the warmth, but for the opportunities Orlando offers as well. From working for companies such as PRG, ProMedia, PSAV & AVHQ to co-owning a company titled “Events AV” Jesse possesses a high level of technical and business expertise continuing to expand with the rapid growth of Orlando Productions. Additionally, his business ethics and loyalty have allowed him to maintain reputable partnerships over the years and continues to grow our client base.
