PSAV announced today it has acquired Southern Audio Visual (SAV), a high-quality provider of live event audiovisual experiences for clients and luxury hotel partners based in Miami, FL.
Family led since its founding in 1947, SAV has a long-established culture of service excellence and collaborative partnerships that make it a perfect fit with PSAV.
“We are excited to have the SAV team members join our PSAV family. Together we will be able to deliver our valued customers the deepest and most capable technology resources in the meetings and event industry today,” said PSAV President and CEO, Mike McIlwain. “The addition of SAV is an important step toward PSAV’s goal of being the ultimate local resource for corporate, association, and event planners around the globe.”
SAV has valuable partnerships with 26 marquis luxury hotels and resorts in the U.S. and a highly talented group of employees.
The combination broadens PSAV’s existing domestic footprint and further increases density in the key meeting markets of Miami, New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C.
“We are thrilled to become an integral part of the PSAV family as we share common cultural values and the desire to achieve the highest level of service excellence,” said Paul Lowenthal, current CEO and grandson of the founder. “We will continue our hands-on personalized service approach and the combination of our two great organizations will provide seamless and enhanced value for our hotel partners and direct clients.”
SAV will operate independently under its current leadership while the companies identify the best opportunity to enhance service and support to their hotel, corporate, and association customers.
