SLATTS PUB UNVEILS UNIQUE MODERN BUSINESS CENTERSlatts Pub, a recently remodeled neighborhood restaurant located in downtown Blue Ash, is proud to announce its technologically equipped conservatory and dining room as the next generation of business centers.

The restaurant has invested over $100,000 in high tech audio/visual equipment, including high speed wireless Internet, wireless microphone, and DVD and PowerPoint presentation abilities featured on big screen plasma HDTVs. In addition, the Slatts Pub webcam allows participants not in the building to view from a remote location.

Cincinnati based, Alamo Electronics undertook the substantial Slatts Pub audio/visual install. “In my 25 years with Alamo Electronics, I have yet to see a restaurant encompass such a wide range of technological resources as Slatts,” stated Alamo Director of Professional Services Team, Tim May. “Some have tried to add conference facilities, but no one else has succeeded in combining the atmosphere and conference center capabilities uniquely blended within a restaurant.”

“Our goal was to create a space where meetings could take place with all of the technological capabilities of the office, but with a much more relaxed atmosphere,” said Slatts Pub owner Bob Slattery. “Its design creates an environment unique to any conference room and encourages creative ideas not elicited by the traditional office setting.”

In addition to the high tech audio/visual equipment, Slatts Pub offers full menu service and professional wait staff.

“I urge local businesses, professional organizations, social groups, and event promoters to consider Slatts Pub for their next meeting, event or press conference,” Slattery continued, “If the state of the art equipment, convenient location and comfortable atmosphere aren’t enough, wait until you try our famous biscuits.”

News America, a division of News Corp, recently held a 2007 strategy and planning session with one of their Cincinnati-based national accounts at Slatts Pub. “Slatts was the ideal place for our gathering” said Stefanie Detwiler, vice president and general sales manager of the Cincinnati News America office. “The atmosphere was perfect for continuing to build our relationship with this account, as well as plan for 2007 and beyond. Our national vice president of sales was able to monitor the activities from New York, via the Slatts Pub webcam.”

American Digital Imaging CEO, Sal Passanisi, was also impressed with Slatts. “Where else can you go to whet both your traditional and techno taste buds? From E-Bay to Blue Ray, it’s a great environment for a lunch and to learn.”
