LONG BEACH, CALIF. — November 17, 2010 — For the second consecutive year, PSAV® Presentation Services has been named "Best Audio-Visual Presentation Provider" in Southern California by meeting planners, event planners and suppliers who participated in the second annual "Readers' Choice Best Of " award campaign hosted by Southern California Meetings + Events magazine. The Best Of awards are designed to honor the cream-of-the-crop in the regional meetings and events industry.
"From the economic boom times of just a few years ago to a rocky economic climate rounding out the decade, this year's winners proved that to be successful, you must put on one heck of a show through good and bad," said John Sullivan, Director, National Accounts, Tiger Oak Publications, Meetings + Events Media Group. "Our valued subscribers determine the winners of the 'Best Of' campaign, and every vote in each category is influential and important. The awards are a celebration of the hard work and above-and-beyond service of suppliers who help planners be at the top of their game."
PSAV Regional Vice Presidents of Operation Robert Grote, William Liles, and Todd Hester accepted the award last month at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Northern San Diego.
"The technology teams at PSAV Presentation Services understand that pulling off a great event is about more than technicalities," Sullivan said. "The most complicated of high-tech gadgetry should enhance a meeting flawlessly, so that its intricacies are undetected—an undertaking ’09 and ’10 winner PSAV has perfected.
"The company's digital signage and HD video conferencing services are amongst the cutting-edge offerings available, and its power distribution and staging services, combined with the eco-friendly equipment and energy-efficient solutions provided by PSAV are all factors that helped make this award possible," he added. "As far as our readers are concerned, PSAV is the créme de la créme of AV providers in Southern California."
PSAV is the leading supplier of audiovisual and event technology to hotels, associations, producers and meeting planners worldwide. With more than 800 luxury hotels, resorts and conference centers worldwide, and 80 offices throughout California, PSAV is totally committed to making every live event an unforgettable experience.
"On behalf of PSAV, I'd like to congratulate our teams in Southern California for securing this coveted award for two years in a row," said John Rissi, Senior Vice President of West Coast Operations for PSAV. "Without the leadership and direction of Robert Grote, William Liles, Todd Hester and their respective crews, this accolade couldn't be possible."
Liles also provided accolades: "We'd also like to thank Mike Quinten and the Park Hyatt Aviara team for hosting the event, all of the wonderful technicians who helped make this event happen, and the dozens of PSAV team members who supporting us by attending the event. I could not be more proud of the company I work for and the team we have here in SoCal!"
