Our Previous Shows
In 1946 Max and Victor Hall looked around at the rapidly growing city of San Diego, California and saw that they could improve the quality of its businesses. The brothers formed Meeting Services, Inc. (MSI) which provided audiovisual equipment to local companies. Over the years, as San Diego’s industry and tourism expanded, MSI did as well, expertly designing and installing state of the art sound systems for the smallest corporate meetings to the largest conferences, conventions, trade shows, fundraisers, sporting events, artistic performances, and political speeches.
Today MSI offers a complete line of event production, technological support, and equipment rental services and continues to ensure the success, efficiency, and productivity of our clients’ special gatherings, large and small, around the block and around the world.
Clients can trust MSI for the simplest order—a flipchart and colored markers—to the most involved request--1500 lighting instruments, 22 separate sound systems, a full video production suite, design and technical direction, and a staff of engineers and technicians. We can contract, design, deliver, and support any project, anywhere, at anytime, with the best and newest equipment available. Need to light up Staples Center for your High Definition live TV shoot? MSI can do it. Your show is in Malaysia, Cancun, or the Bahamas? MSI has been there. You say your event takes place in a barren parking lot, on a lake, on the side of a frozen mountain, or on top of the Hoover Dam—don’t worry—MSI can make it happen for you, and we’ll do it quickly, smoothly, and with pride.
Even though MSI produces shows across the United States and internationally, we have never forgotten our community roots. Lucky attendees of local Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Beatles, and Rolling Stones concerts have rocked out to their favorite artists courtesy of MSI’s professional audio design and equipment. Historical hotel giants, the El Cortez and the Hotel del Coronado, repeatedly utilized MSI’s audio/visual rental and staging division. MSI is proud to be the in-house production company for the Town & Country Hotel. The San Diego Chargers, the San Diego Padres, the Make A Wish Foundation, the San Diego Symphony, and the Rotary Club rely on MSI, just as numerous community theater groups, churches, and civic organizations trust us with their projects, meetings, blood drives, parades, and parties.
Our long-term clients form the cornerstone of our business, and our satisfied customers have graciously recommended us to serve many clients in venues far from San Diego. With their consistent trust and support, MSI has continued to grow and innovate. We are proud to be production partners with AARP, ESPN, Lawson Software, Major League Baseball, Microsoft, the NBA and the National Football League Players Association. MSI has provided services to every U.S. President since Harry Truman. Our most recent government work includes the United States Homeland Security Department.
From our humble beginnings, MSI has grown to become a major provider in the industry. Our production warehouse and office complex is a two-level structure of over 65,000 square feet, which includes on-site and satellite storage facilities. Over the years, video projection, automated lighting, computer graphics, line array speakers, and digital audio mixers have all been introduced to our clients with great success. We are also pleased to offer our clients the use of the newest generation of micro video projectors for their media presentations. Over 100 talented people are happy to call MSI their full-time employer. Hundreds more work with us on a project-by-project basis. But through all of our growth, MSI has never forgotten that all of our hard work is about making you look and sound terrific.
Years of experience and literally thousands of shows have taught us that what producers want and need is worry-free production, utilizing the right equipment, operated by professionals, at a fair price. We’ve built our company on this simple premise.
Here we focus on the newest in presentation equipment for any type of audio-visual application. We do dry rentals of A/V equipment if you’d like to set it up yourself, or we can provide technicians familiar with the technology. Either way, we’re happy to help you select the right equipment for your project and budget.
MSI maintains a fully stocked, fully staffed retail outlet at our Thornmint Road location. We are easily San Diego’s most complete expendables outlet for every part of the film, theater, TV, meetings and events market.
Meeting Services, Inc. has been the preferred audio/visual contractor at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center for more than thirty years. As the in-house provider, we not only have an intimate knowledge of the facility, but we have access to all of the answers which will help make your show a success!
