Pyramids lighting expert to illuminate Palme
Dubai, March 29, 2009
The renowned event lighting specialist, Matthieu Larivée, who has been honoured with international awards for his special event lighting designs at the Pyramids in Egypt, will deliver the keynote address at the Palme Middle East expo (Palme).
Palme, the region's largest dedicated trade show for professional audio, lighting, music, entertainment, audio visual and systems integration solutions, will run from April 26 to 28 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
During his presentation entitled, “Transforming One of the Seven Wonders of the World - Live at the Pyramids” Lariveeat will discuss the need to push the boundaries of lighting and audio visual technologies for events.
Using his own creative work as an example, specifically he will examine future trends and review the latest technology available.
“Larivée has earned a solid reputation for his multi-dimensional artistic approach and global vision of a show,” said Alex Heuff, exhibition director, PALME.
In 2007, he claimed the prestigious 'Middle East Lighting Design Award' for his work on Chantal Chamandy’s A Night at the Pyramids concert in Egypt. He has also played integral roles with lighting productions as diverse as the rock group REM to the Cirque du Soleil.
“I think it is fair to say that Larivee’s credentials are beyond reproach,” added Heuff.
Sustainability, aesthetics and safety are the other key topics that feature prominently on the lighting solutions conference agenda.
To address industry audio visual issues, Palme will host the Integrators Round Table Forum – the only gathering for the leading system integrators within the Middle East.
The forum will examine the current economic constraints, the relationship between new technologies creating new trends and vice versa, with a special industry update from the Middle East Communications Industries Association (MECIA).
Yet another new aspect to Palme 2009 is the introduction of the Syn-Aud-Con Certified Seminars.
The course leader, Pat Brown is highly respected across the industry and his ability to communicate complex technical topics effectively has drawn interest from engineers and professionals throughout the audio and acoustic industry at home and abroad.
Now in its seventh year, Palme has successfully evolved into three clearly defined vertical sectors; Install, Musac and Event 360.
Combined they cover the entire spectrum of the entertainment industry, from cabling and lighting solutions to musical instruments and live acts.-TradeArabia News Service
