Going to a conference only to leave with a headache from loud speakers can be counterproductive. In a large conference, it can be almost impossible to find a place in the auditorium that doesn’t either leave you with ringing ears or straining to hear from being too far away.

Enter Silent Events, a company that can accommodate events large or small. The company provides attendees headphones with personal volume controls and three separate channels. If you’re at a trade show and only interested in one product, you can easily tune in and focus on that specific product. “You can have all three programs talking simultaneously, you don’t have to waste your day and wait for the next session at a later time,” says Ryan Dowd, creator and owner of Silent Events.

Silent Events is not just a headphone company, it’s a full-production company that can run your event or simply deliver headphones.
