In 2013 Le Maitre invested in increasing productivity at its pyrotechnics factory in Peterborough U.K., in order to cope with demand. The pyrotechnic manufacturing process is a very labour intensive process and Le Maitre had reached almost full production capacity the year before. The company therefore researched alternative methods, exploring different industries before subsequently identifying a completely new production process which can output 24,000 to 26,000 units per hour, regardless of diameter, and is now resulting in a significant increase in capacity.
Andrew King, the Editor of Professional Lighting & Production sat down with Johanne Bélanger, the president of both InfoComm International and Freeman Audio Visual Canada, during the 2014 edition of the InfoComm Show.

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.
So a great first day is in the books at InfoComm 2013. The organization’s slogan of “Communicate. Collaborate. Connect.” applies as much to the various technologies and systems on display here as it does the professionals gathered to experience them all.
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.
