With demand on the rise for audiovisual (AV) services in the Frankfurt, Northern Germany and Benelux hotel and conference centre market, PSAV® has recently opened a new branch office and equipment warehouse at Hessenring 4a, 64546 Moerfelden Walldorf, Germany.

Together with facilities in London, Paris and Munich, the 600m2 facility will serve as a hub for local and European global sales events whereby all event technology equipment, including video projectors, screens and sound systems, will be stored.

PSAV is a global supplier of audiovisual services and event technologies to decision-makers responsible for organising meetings, conferences and events worldwide. The work of the company’s multinational team spans the world, delivering the best in video and projection, lighting, set design and construction, sound, staging, event IT support, rigging, power testing, high-definition event video conferencing and webcasting.

PSAV Branch Development Manager for Europe Steffen Nebel said: "With nearly 30,000 events produced by PSAV each year and growing across Europe, we needed to add a branch office and warehouse that could support such demand.

"This new facility is quite beneficial to all hotels and conference centres in the region. With meetings business on the rise, especially from US-based companies bringing meetings and incentives to Europe, we needed to make equipment inventory more readily accessible. The Frankfurt branch office gives us the physical space we need today with room to grow in the future."

The new facility allows the event technology company to expand its services from only providing on-site storage. Currently, AV equipment is stored at the hotel and managed by a team of location-based technicians. With the addition of this branch office, PSAV can also offer a ‘drop-off service for scenic and other larger equipment, therefore, expanding the local rental equipment availability.

"For more than 40 years, PSAV has built a reputation for supplying the very best in event technology and up-to-the-minute resources, supporting client meetings, corporate conferences and events not only across Europe, but worldwide," Nebel added.

"Whether event planners need minimal equipment to support a gathering for a few colleagues at a hotel in Munich, or a multi-screen, multi-media large-scale conference in Frankfurt, PSAV has what it takes to many any event more engaging, more memorable, and ultimately, more meaningful."
