Ceiling speakers for home theaters and multi-room systems have caught on in ways I'm sure make hard core audiophiles cringe. Who would have thought that anyone would even consider getting theater quality sound from a drywall ceiling? After all, weren't they invented for airport PA systems --- and we all know that you can't make out anything that is said over those things.
Summer is on the way so it's time to start thinking about taking your entertainment outside.

Conventions/conferences are events that challenge a man's (and woman's) stamina. They push you to the limits of creativity and performance. Companies spend hundreds of thousands, no millions to attend them annually just to reach, educate, inform, persuade other companies and the media.
Just because the lowly company press room is pivotal for everyone, everywhere why should the person leading the charge stoop to make certain the company's press site had just the right information and that the information is easily available, fresh. We wrapped our many years of experience and feedback from media people into the attached article.
