 SCHAUMBURG, IL, June 30, 2015 — PSAV has grown its power distribution services to more than 220 exclusive locations in the U.S. and Canada. In support of PSAV’s overall operation and to address the needs of hotel partnerships and customers, this expansion in the specialty services arena supports a growing need to have a technology partner that allows all event solutions to be addressed with one company.

“The PSAV power distribution team provides distribution for productions, exhibit trade shows, breakout meetings, computer labs and offices, as well as industrial equipment,” stated Derek Coleman, PSAV’s vice president, power distribution. “Having professional power setups ensures safe, secure and reliable energy needs throughout any event. Just to give you a comparison, our team can assist with 400 amp three phase power distribution needs; that would be comparable to 52 household washers or 40 dryers running at once, or 45 food trucks, or enough circuits to power more than 12 two-story, 2,000. ft. homes.”

PSAV’s power distribution services department is built upon extensive training, industry expertise, and the best equipment available. They conduct more than 20 regional training classes each year, which covers power distribution, risk mitigation and the use of personal protective equipment. The power distribution team consists of licensed master electricians, who directly support the team in the field, specializing in everything from manufacturing, installations, construction, system design and event trade shows. Partnering with Motion Laboratories, PSAV provides industry-changing equipment to support events that meet, if not exceed, local and national standards. As the nation’s largest exclusive provider of power distribution services and technology authority, PSAV ensures the facility or venue is prepared for a wide range of client needs for events, meetings rooms and tradeshows with safety always in the forefront of what they do.
