Robe lighting has won the 2010 Produccion Audio and Production Professional Award for the "Lighting Company of the Year" (Empresa de iluminación del año).
Produccion Audio and Production Professional are Spain's leading technical and production industry journals. The annual Awards, produced in association with IFEMA - The Fair Trade Institute of Madrid - is now in its 8th year, recognise the best creative, technological and human achievements and developments across all sectors of the professional production and installation world.
The Award was announced during an evening of celebrations staged at the Auditorio Sur, a large theatre at the IFEMA Convention & Congress Centre in Madrid. The three nominated products in each Produccion Audio Award category were chosen after six weeks of online public voting from readers and other interested parties via the website. From these, the winners were then chosen by a panel of 13 industry experts.
Robe lighting is distributed in Spain by Barcelona and Madrid based Lexon, and the Award was collected on behalf of the company on the night by Gabriel Albornoz, Editor of Produccion Audio magazine.
"It's a huge honour for us to win this prestigious Award and to have our products, ideas, work and philosophies recognised by the industry,” said Robe's key account manager for Europe, Ingo Dombrowski.
This is the second Produccion Audio and Production Professional Award that Robe has won. In 2008 the Czech Republic based manufacturer won "Best Lighting Product" for its DigitalSpot 3000 and 7000DT luminaires.
