LONG BEACH, CALIF. — December 7, 2010
— This year celebrating its 25th anniversary, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa has long been recognized as Fort Lauderdale's premier location for conferences, incentives, and trade shows. Having recently completing a $50 million property-wide renovation, managers of the 650-room resort have selected PSAV® Presentation Services to provide its 40,000 square-feet of indoor function space with audiovisual equipment as well as rigging, power distribution and HSIA services for all future events.
Located on South Florida's largest private beach, Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is hailed as one of Marriott's top resorts for meeting planner satisfaction. It accommodates up to 2,000 delegates for private events with 32 flexible meeting rooms – including the area’s only oceanfront ballroom -- and boasts 60,000 square feet of outdoor terrace function space with 200,000 square feet of sparkling beach for signature events.
"PSAV's expansive event-technology portfolio is in line with what meeting planners expect for top caliber venues in Fort Lauderdale," said General Manager Jim Mauer. "There's absolutely nothing that our customers could request that PSAV can't provide."
Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa's Director of Event Management Brendan Mangan concurred: "Because PSAV operates a large production office and distribution warehouse in Fort Lauderdale, it's like having the cavalry in my backyard when I need them.  I couldn't be happier."
With more than 800 event-service locations worldwide, and more than 600 across the United States, PSAV is enhancing the resort’s strong green initiatives as well.  By having a local equipment warehouse and office in close proximity to the facility, the most advanced technology in the industry is available with virtually no additional shipping.
Digby Davies, PSAV CEO, said, “We are pleased to enter into a new relationship with the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Fort Lauderdale,  a top meeting destination for loyal Marriott customers.  We will not only serve as a tremendous resource by providing top quality event technologies, local service and on-site support, but we also will bring imagination and inspiration to meeting planners, enabling them to use our equipment more effectively so their meetings will be more impactful."
