GLP Break New Ground at LDI 2018

by Stage Directions

GLP had a very good LDI2018 where they were awarded PLSN Magazine’s Gold Star Award for Best Effect Fixture, adjudicated for the Force 120, having picked up a similar PLSN award last year for the JDC1 hybrid strobe. Here's a video from GLP of its LDI booth:

GLP was also presented with the Best Large Booth award from the show, citing the company’s “excellent demos and presentation of a wide range of products”. Completing the honors was Live Design’s Lighting Product of the Year Award for the JDC1. The GLP booth was packed from beginning to end.

These products, and many other ground-breaking fixtures, were both on static display and incorporated into a mesmerizing light show, while the awards provided the cherry on a glittering booth, designed and programmed once again by Matt Shimamoto (Volt Lites) in conjunction with GLP Inc. president, Mark Ravenhill.

The Licht Bar at the GLP booth“We were hugely busy throughout the show and saw a great number of people from across the country and abroad,” confirmed Ravenhill. “We designed a brand new “Licht!’ bar which became the central attraction of the booth and was surrounded by eight new product launches, all making their debut, which received a fantastic reaction.”

The product array included such products as impression E350 and S350, KNV Cube and KNV Arc, impression FR1, X4 atom Rackmount PSU, and products from distributed brands, Cosmic Truss and Scenex Lighting.

Another change for GLP this year was the adoption of a rolling presentation, whereby customers were presented with one of GLP’s new products at regular intervals without interrupting the collective ambience and hospitality of the booth. “This worked extremely well,” added Ravenhill.

Ravenhill’s North American GLP Inc team were in non-stop action, well supported by senior members of the parent company in Karlsbad, including MD Udo Kuenzler and key account manager Olli Schwendke.

“It was a massive team effort by everyone responsible for getting the lighting in, up, down and back again,” Mark Ravenhill stated in conclusion. Plus, of course, ensuring the customers had full exposure to, and understanding of the ground-breaking attributes of their award-winning suite of products.
