Early feedback in terms of visitor numbers at Prolight + Sound is positive – and equally positive is at least one exhibitor, with Robe lighting saying that it enjoyed its best ever international trade show. The Czech Republic based professional lighting manufacturer launched five new products, and said that it received an incredible number of visitors to the stand and took a record number of orders at the show from new and existing customers.
The success of the show was further enhanced for Robe by holding its bi-annual International Distributor Conference (IDC) - also in Frankfurt - just before the exhibition. This was attended by over 200 people representing 80 companies and over 60 countries and regions worldwide.
Robe says that its ROBIN 600 LEDWash fixture - its fastest selling product since 1999 - again attracted massive interest and more orders, reaffirming its status as the best moving LED wash light currently available.
Foremost among the newly launched products was the ROBIN MMX Spot - the first in a new 'greener' more efficient generation of 1200 series luminaires. Such was the clamour around this luminaire, according to Robe, that all the pre-production models went from the booth at the end of the show, taken by specific distributors for demonstrating to their clients. There were also several major orders placed for the fixture at the show.
"Frankfurt absolutely rocked for us in every way,” said Robe's MD Josef Valchar. “We believe that we have absolutely the right products at the right time for the current market conditions and demands, and look forward to a proactive year of hard work and positive energy for sales, R&D - and the future.”
