On the same day, VAI also furnished all manner of technical staging services, including audio, video, lighting and scenic in support of RSA's Computer Security Conference at San Francisco's Moscone Center. Former President Bill Clinton was keynote speaker at the event (see http://news.cnet.com/8301-31921_3-20031935-281.html).
"WorldStage's VAI is on a very short list of GSA vendors capable of offering complete and customizable solutions for high-profile live events, including personnel that have been vetted for secret clearance," says Lee Standard, Government and Prime Programming Chief at VAI.
