“We take pride in telling the world that the heritage Minto Hall has been converted into a first-class international standard convention centre.

“Minto Hall’s restoration plans included provisions for conferencing where patrons would be welcomed to use the premise’s world-class facilities. Reviewing the site plan; it was clear that each of the seminar rooms, board room and committee room would need their own dedicated audio infrastructure. The venue’s management were clear that they desired a bespoke audio solution that’s easy-to-use, quick to setup and low on maintenance; and that could be perfectly tailored to the respective room’s physical dimensions and aesthetics with the assurance of a high-quality audio experience. Bose Professional was the obvious choice considering the brand’s wide portfolio of technologically advanced products perfectly fit the project’s needs” reveals Aparjit Dhamija of Fortune Telecom, the project’s official audio consultant.
