“ANC and GoVision are game changers in this industry, and both companies have outstanding reputations due to their excellent talent, innovation, client services and ability to exceed expectations,” said Linardos. “Combining these two brands will allow us to continue to grow and distinguish ANC as a truly unique partner for the marketplace, creating dynamic experiences through technology innovation.”
“The timing of this transition comes at a good time and aligns with our recent successful deployments across a variety of industries,” said Cifarelli. “Adding an events unit to ANC will elevate and expand our offerings as a turnkey technology service provider.”
