Resources

Here are a few links to help make planning your upcoming event easier!

Around BU

Student Activities Office : We encourage all groups to talk about their upcoming event with the Activities Consultants at SAO.  They are your BEST resource for how to get things done at BU!

Dean of Students : What’s not to love about DOS?  They work all day to make your BU experience a good one!

University Reservations : During the afternoons, you’ll find a representative from University Reservations right in the SAO main office so stop by and make a room reservation.  University Reservations is a division of Events & Conferences.

Events & Conferences : Hey, did you know that SPS is part of E&C?  They’ve got a whole staff of event planners so if you absolutely don’t know where to go, try them.  Of course, I bet the SAO Activities Consultants would be jealous you didn’t go to them first.

Tsai Performance Center : Well, if you are having your event at Tsai, you probably won’t need SPS services, but we’re all part of the same production family from Events & Conferences so we had to mention them.  And they are always happy to provide guidance to students about upcoming events.

Production Vendors / Suppliers

ALPS (Advanced Lighting & Production Services): One of New England’s most comprehensive sources for theatrical lighting and effects.   ALPS has earned an excellent reputation in the industry for the diverse and vast inventory, but also for the outstanding staff support system.  SPS uses ALPS often for getting the very best lighting options at a reasonable price.

Audio East : SPS uses Audio East frequently for concert sound system rentals.

Boston Light & Sound
