About HMG

HMG is the marketing arm of Hart Entertainment, MMI Product Placement, and Frosh Carnival. These divisions address respectively our three main areas of expertise: interactive game rentals, product placement, and university product sampling.

Now that's an eclectic trio! After all, no two members of a family are exactly alike, in personality, in talents, strengths, and in features. This is why we have created HMG, so all of our clients will know the various disciplines and areas of specialty.
