LONG BEACH, CALIF. — JUNE 3, 2008 — PSAV® Presentation Services, the leading provider of audiovisual and event technology to hotels, associations, producers and meeting planners worldwide, is extending its event technology reach beyond the boundaries of traditional meeting spaces to serve as the single point of contact for high speed Internet access, digital signage, business centers and more…including design and installation consultation for a facility’s new construction and/or renovation.

Hoteliers attending the Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC), to be held June 17-19 at the Austin (Texas) Convention Center, are invited to visit Booth #549 and explore what PSAV has in store.

“Today’s event technology is so dynamic and robust that it no longer can be confined to the four walls of the meetings space,” said Digby Davies, PSAV president and CEO. “Travelers demand information at their fingertips, and want that information delivered to them in fresh, entertaining, and compelling ways. There’s no better medium to accomplish those tasks than the event technologies from PSAV.”

When it comes to putting on a show, PSAV is top of mind for more than 800 luxury hotels, resorts and conference centers worldwide. What many may not realize is that PSAV also provides:

  • Design and Installation Services from concept to operation 
  • Reliable, robust High Speed Internet connectivity for any area of the hotel
  • Personalized Digital Signage updates and management services by its onsite team
  • Future technology integration to enhance guest service and increase revenues
“We’re not just ‘Partners in Show,’ we’re partners ‘In-The-Know’ for hospitality technology, with insider knowledge of facilities and the cutting-edge technologies that could support them,” said PSAV’s Senior Vice President of Technology & Development, Brian Lagestee. “While we help properties build a better meetings business, we simultaneously help owners and managers build a better property-wide technology and broadband infrastructure that eliminates redundant tasks performed by multiple suppliers.”

DID YOU KNOW … PSAV’s entire array of event-technology services has been helping meeting planners to hold cost-effective meetings for more than 45 years? Instead of using multiple off-site suppliers to coordinate with hotel services for a single event, PSAV remains onsite all day, every day.

DID YOU KNOW … PSAV identifies how, where and why to leverage technology in a facility’s design? PSAV specifies which technologies will be deployed and where, reviews budget and specifications with owners to make sure the project is on track . . . and, installs all agreed-upon technology at the property. 

DID YOU KNOW … PSAV provides consulting and helps owners avoid common pitfalls during the renovation or new-build process? PSAV provides the hands-on, day-to-day operational expertise to help in equipment selection, aesthetic design for technology connections, strategic rigging point and power outlet placement, bandwidth allocation and Internet access points. 

DID YOU KNOW … PSAV orchestrates an event from behind the scenes? This allows meeting planners to concentrate on what they do best – executing the perfect meeting. That could not be done without the expertise of PSAV technicians and its wide range of event technologies. 

DID YOU KNOW … PSAV doesn’t walk away when a particular project is completed? The company is a true partner from concept and design through implementation and installation to training and daily operation. This kind of support is not just for audiovisual services…it includes high-speed Internet connectivity, power distribution, digital signage, business & technology centers, and various public space designs – all from a single contact.
