PSAV Clinches 'Best AV Provider' Title for Third Consecutive Year

Hand-picked by meeting planners, event planners and suppliers who subscribe to
Southern California Meetings + Events
magazine, PSAV is the Readers' Choice once again

LONG BEACH, CALIF. — October 27, 2011 — Designed to honor the "cream of the crop" in the regional meetings and events industry, readers of California Meetings + Events magazine have named PSAV® Presentation Services "Best Audiovisual Presentation Provider" in Southern California for the third consecutive year. 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.

"Nothing gives me greater pride than being recognized by our end customers for the services we provide," said William Liles, PSAV Regional Vice President who accepted the award this month at The Fluxx in San Diego, along with Todd Hester and Robert Grote, also Regional VPs for PSAV's Southern California operation. " For the past three years, and since the inception of this award, there has only been one winner, PSAV. My congratulations and thanks to all of our dedicated team members in Southern California for their continued commitment to making PSAV No.1."

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.

Image Magnification, Set Design and Production were the key services that enabled PSAV to clinch this coveted award for 2011. Image magnification enables meeting goers to see a presenter, no matter how far away they are; Set design provides the eye-catching backdrops using a large assortment of physical and stretch-fabric structure sets; and Production delivers powerful virtual-event technologies which allows event planners to conduct face-to-face meetings all over the world without ever setting foot on a plane.

"PSAV has excelled at providing the finest A/V Services and products to their expanding clientele all over North America. Winning the California Meetings + Events Readers Choice Best Of Award solidifies their place at the very top of our readerships list of great companies. By winning the Award for Outstanding Audio Visual Service Provider three years running, they have achieved something no other company had ever accomplished," said John Sullivan, Director, National Accounts, Tiger Oak Publications, Meetings + Events Media Group.  "Their commitment to excellence in all areas provides clients confidence that their programs and meetings will be flawless every time. We congratulate them on earning this award."

The PSAV team in Southern California attended the
"Best Of" Award Party on October 19.

Beginning in 2012, the Southern California and Northern California rewards will be combined. PSAV's Liles said he is looking forward to next year with a larger PSAV presence and remains hopeful for another win.

"On behalf of PSAV, I'd like to congratulate our teams in Southern California for securing this coveted award three 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."
