About Us

In 2005, at age 15, Mike McConnell started Fairway Productions as a full service event production company specializing in audio, video, and lighting services. Fairway experienced exponential growth over the years, and in 2018 joined forces with Display Group to create AVL-Creative.

McConnell was proud to take his already successful company, along with their inventory, and employees into this new venture. “Forming AVL Creative allows us the ability to offer a seamless event experience to our clients. Having that expertise in house allows our sales team even more flexibility to produce great events” - said Rick Portwood, President of Display Group.

AVL holds itself to a higher standard above the rest, as an industry leader in the audio visual, and live event market in and around Michigan. AVL is headquartered in the historic Packard Building 22, just east of Downtown Detroit. With this location, AVL is in the center of it all, and continues to service clients throughout Michigan and across the country.
