Once again, the Prolight + Sound exhibition in Frankfurt was a great success for Le Mark with customers visiting all the way from Russia, Canada and even New Zealand. Billed as The Global Entertainment Technology Show, the event took place from 2nd-5th April at the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Centre.
“Every year we enjoy this amazing opportunity to meet our international distributors and customers, discuss new products and exchange ideas,” said Karolina Wlodarczyk, Head of Export. “We’ve had over 100 enquiries from new and existing customers for printed labels, tapes, flooring and Dirty Rigger products. We had Le Mark and Dirty Rigger staff members alongside our friends from FlightCaseLabel.de, Rigger Shop and RL Sales, and it was good to have many people on the stand during the busiest times.”
The PAL Label Challenge was a highlight of the event, with attendees trying their very hardest to pull apart our ultra-high-tak foam adhesive from between two flight case recessed label plates. Many tried, but no one succeeded!
Dirty Rigger was proud to present two brand-new products at Prolight + Sound. Firstly, they launched a revolutionary range of motor hoist chain bags under the brand UPSTAGE™. Made and extensively tested in the UK, these chain bags provide an outstanding combination of quality, durability and safety.
Steve Marshall, Product Manager, said, “I was really proud to have the new chain bags on the stand. Everyone was impressed that they’re made in the UK, are of such great quality and that they conform to so many European safety standards. We’ve also already had lots of enquiries about other custom-branded products, some from as far away as Canada and India.”
Dirty Rigger Designer Jess Morris also showed the new women’s work trousers that are about to go into a Beta test phase. Jess said, “Everyone who looked over the new trousers was excited that these are so close to release, and we brought home lots of enquiries to join the testing programme. They particularly liked the number of pockets, elasticity and slim-line fit.”
“The new and refreshed stand design was a triumph and our distributors were incredibly helpful,” said Karolina. “We couldn’t have gotten through the week without their support and good humour. If we felt we were flagging, Rigger Shop kept the vodka and pickles flowing and cheered us with their beautiful gift of personalised Russian Dolls!”
Despite working incredibly hard, the team also found time for a spot of relaxation, enjoying traditional restaurants, a local shisha bar and the Elation Professional after party.
Overall, it was a great show and we’re excited for 2020.
