TORONTO — Electro-Media Design Ltd. (EMD) and The HIDI Group (HIDI) have partnered to deliver more comprehensive AV, IT and engineering services for the competitive lodging environment.
By combining EMD’s 25 years of consultative expertise in hotel AV operations, audio, video, control and related presentation, entertainment and communications technologies with HIDI’s 40 years of multidisciplinary engineering knowledge, it results in a single authoritative resource with which to collaborate when planning new, or renovating existing, hotels and event spaces.
“The stars aligned to unite two of hospitality’s best-in-breed consulting companies with complementary fields of expertise,” says Jeff Loether, EMD founder and president. “We have collaborated on dozens of projects worldwide, including 11 Four Seasons Hotels from Madrid to Massachusetts, The Quin Hotel in New York, Hilton Lagos Nigeria, and the Loews Regency in Houston. Today, we are delivering a five-star consultative service from the hoteliers’ perspective. With EMD focused on entertainment technologies, acoustics and space design, and HIDI specializing in network and security services, now hotel companies, developers, asset managers, architects, interior designers, construction managers and contractors can design and build the best venues on the planet.”
