It’s difficult to believe it’s already June 1st, but there you have it! Considering our celebrations during the month of May, this is shaping up to be one dynamic year! During the HD Expo show in Las Vegas, one of our finest collections, B.Lux, debuted some incredible new fixtures at the show (we’ll have them on our site soon). We have other news as well, so here–without further ado–is our May Mash-up!
HDExpo’s team reports the show’s attendance was up 10% over last year with 7,500 attendees perusing the wares of 842 exhibitors within the 250,000-square-feet of space it occupied at the Sands Expo Center. Next year, Nielsen Exposition’s Hospitality Design Group will move the show to Mandalay Bay.
Hot on the heels of the Vegas show, Global Lighting was a proud sponsor of WantedDesign where our newest collection by Secto Designs created a stir in the City Lounge, an effort of New Finnish Design that drew a heavy crowd to its space. We are thrilled to be Secto’s exclusive North American distributor. We showcased their fixtures in this earlier blog post.
This was the second year for WantedDesign, and the show’s organizers, Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, tell us they doubled their attendance over last year’s show, bringing in 6,500 visitors during the three-day event and 2,000 VIP attendees during the opening night on May 18th.
And as if that isn’t enough news, Secto Designs garnered a mention in the May issue of Architect: The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We’ll let the screenshots of the lights speak for themselves! What’s that? I believe they are whispering, “Lighting doesn’t get groovier than this!”
If the rest of 2012 is even half as exciting as the month of May, we’re in for quite a ride! We hope you stop back often and take the trip with us as we roll out new products and report on news of other successes our growing collection of collaborators are sure to achieve.
