ABBIT started out as a video production company. Founded by Maarten Vanneste in 1982, growing from video production to meeting support, Abbit now focuses on much more than merely audio-visual (AV) support and production. We realised our clients needed specialists with the knowledge, tools and techniques to address their meeting objectives. Which is why ABBIT meeting support, then ABBIT meeting innovators and now ABBIT meeting companion.

The basis was and is to make sure your AV works perfect and works reliably.
We also design session formats, optimise your presentations and strive to achieve maximum engagement and interaction during your event.
ABBIT focuses on what really creates impact with your event: well informed and well-networked participants that go home engaged with your messages and goals. A perfect production with a focus on the outcome and ROI will instantly be more effective.

Each year, ABBIT meeting innovators supports around 275 events globally, almost 50% of which are US based clients. In 2018, ABBIT became part of a bigger entity; the PFL-Group. With a larger team, brand new infrastructure, expertise in video- production and much more means ABBIT is now, more than ever, the number one innovative force in meeting and conference support.

Who We Are

The ABBIT-team is a creative bunch that loves to think, create and act.
We have clear goals and purposes, but that doesn’t mean we will go the short and easy way.  We like a detour if we think we can add value to your meeting.
