COVID-19 Update

Updated 10/20/2020

At big audio Inc. we continue to carefully watch the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to the safety and health of everyone in our company and all of our customers, and as such our normal warehouse and on-site operations remain temporarily suspended.

We are continuing to work remotely with all our existing and any new clients on their events as the situation develops and schedules are adjusted accordingly. We are also working in limited onsite capacities with close attention to safety protocols. Please feel free to contact us about any existing or potential events, or about any installation or sales requirements you may have as Chicago reopens.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this pandemic. From all of us at big audio, please continue to be safe and take care of each other during this crisis. We are monitoring the situation carefully, and will be continuing to resume operations as they become safe.

Thank you.
