MIAMI (Jan. 14, 2021) – Over the past year, meetings and events planners have shifted from in-person gatherings to virtual and hybrid events. Hilton Miami Downtown has emerged as the ideal, one-stop solution to help clients move forward and continue connecting in 2021. The hotel has joined forces with Media Stage, Miami’s top audiovisual professionals, to transform its Symphony Ballroom into a convenient, full-service venue for the future of the meetings and events world. 

“2020 truly pushed our industry to be more creative in providing new meeting options for clients so they can continue to engage with their employees, partners and maintain relationships,” said Susy Vento, Director of Sales and Marketing for Hilton Miami Downtown. “Collaborating with Media Stage provides clients the level of quality, service and hospitality they expect from the Hilton brand. Whether a board meeting, annual conference or wedding, we look forward to creating meaningful and successful events for all.” 

Media Stage has built three custom sets within Hilton Miami Downtown’s Symphony Ballroom, each one allowing for customization, personalized flexibility and state-of-the-art livestreaming media functionality. 

•       Set #1 offers fire-side chat-style setting, featuring a simple, yet eye-catching lounge space ideal for a one-on-one or moderated conversation. 

•       Set #2 includes three LCD monitors to display video content (from one or multiple sources) and a news-type presentation desk. 

•       Set #3 delivers the most capabilities, with an 8’ x 15’ high resolution LED wall that can display any type of media or be used as a green screen. The set also includes custom furniture and a lectern with an additional monitor built in.

•       Check out a short video that showcases each of the sets.
