ETC's open house, held October 20
, at the LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore, drew 120 participants from Singapore, Malaysia, Korea and Taiwan. Students and lighting professionals, including art venue technicians, sales company representatives, rental house employees, end users and dealers, helped make the open house a huge success.
This was the first big event ETC held in Asia, which also marked the official opening of the new ETC Singapore Pte. Ltd. ("ETC Singapore") regional office, which will improve sales support on the Southeast Asian market.
The open house kicked off with lighting designer presentations that showed off ETC fixture projects, followed by demos of
Eos®-family lighting desks
, the x7 Color System™,
ETC LED products
and system integration. At the end of the event, ETC CEO Fred Foster made a special appearance and gave a presentation on ETC product history.
Foster says: "The ETC open house gave ETC a great opportunity to share our technology with students, lighting designers and our regional distribution partners. ETC staff and guest speakers, including lighting designers James Tan and Gabriel Chan, shared interesting presentations during the two-day event. ETC also welcomed Alan Loh, the new regional sales manager for Southeast Asia, to the company."
