ST. LOUIS, MO—Audio visual systems provider Conference Technologies, Inc. has announced that they have purchased the assets of rental and production company Media Images of St. Louis. Conference Technologies, Inc. has also hired key talent from the company, including its President, Nick Frolos.

"This change will be very beneficial to the customers of both companies," says Conference Technologies, Inc. President and CEO John Laughlin. "Traditionally, we have focused our rental department on higher-end events, building an inventory of large venue projectors, line arrays, video conferencing and webcasting gear together with the technicians it takes to install and operate them. Media Images has been stronger in breakout gear, stocking large numbers of smaller projectors, screens and sound systems and perfecting the skills it takes to deliver them efficiently."

Laughlin says the combined company will be ideally suited to serve conventions and events of any size anywhere in the United States.
