CHALLENGE: Install a hotel sound system capable of providing sufficient audio volume for a variety of events without annoying nearby guests and local residents.

SOLUTION: Take noise measurements to design an appropriate fixed PA system, and equip the room with acoustical and technological treatments for added protection.

Special events, conferences, and conventions can account for as much as 40 percent of hotel revenues, according to the International Hotel & Restaurant Association.

The large Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel features 334 bedrooms, 28 meeting and function rooms, and nine exhibition halls. The largest of the exhibition halls, which measures 158 by 89 feet, is located at the foot of Sussex Heights — a prestigious 26-story apartment block that has shaped the skyline of Brighton since the late 1960s. However, the increasing popularity of the Hilton exhibition halls meant that the risk of noise disturbing local residents had also increased. The desk received complaints from guests, and local residents also began complaining to the city council.
