Le Maitre Explains How It Improved Productivity

Thursday, September 18th, 2014


gunsThe following was released by Le Maitre to explain how it improved productivity at its U.K. pyrotechnics facility:

In 2013 Le Maitre invested in increasing productivity at its pyrotechnics factory in Peterborough U.K.,  in order to cope with demand.

Lighting Life Underwater at Ripley’s Aquarium

Friday, November 15th, 2013

RIPLEY'S AQUARIUM OF CANADA LP - Dangerous LagoonWe’re quite excited to be bringing you an exclusive look at the lighting systems deployed at the brand new Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, located at the foot of the iconic CN Tower in downtown Toronto.

This project was a massive one with years in design and development being realized at the grand opening in October 2013. PL&P’s Kevin Young spoke with the teams from Mulvey & Banani as well as Guelph’s Sceneworks to get the scoop on what went into the illumination of these underwater worlds.

The story is on the cover of our Winter 2013 issue, dropping in just a couple of weeks, so keep an eye out and let us know what you think of the story, or the attraction itself if you’ve been one of the lucky ones to have been through already.

This show has not only been resilient over the years to trends – and attendees – coming and going, but it’s been extremely prosperous, attracting a steadily increasing and widening array of attendees and exhibitors from various fields. Lighting and staging are becoming increasingly present while more and more technologies from IT, security, and networking sectors seep into what’s traditionally been known as “A/V.” There’s no question the show’s growth is directly connected to the expanding-at-both-ends market it represents.
