CLAYPAKY NEWS AT PROLIGHT+SOUND 2022
After two years without almost any in-person events, we finally had the chance and pleasure to meet all sectors of our industry at ProLight+Sound 2022 in Frankfurt. Claypaky CEO and Osram Head of Business Field for Entertainment Lighting Solutions Marcus Graser said: “Over the last two years Claypaky have never stopped investing in people, innovation, process improvement and new product development. We presented a broad, versatile portfolio of over twenty products, which serve the needs inherent in various fields of use. Some of our fixtures made their international début in Frankfurt.
Today Claypaky offers one of the most complete assortments of lighting solutions both by kind of light source – lamp-based, LED-based and laser-based moving head fixtures – and by professional sector – touring and events, theatre, effect lighting, and IP66 weatherproof units. We met many professionals from our industry who told us that there is a strong desire everywhere to return to live shows and great optimism for full recovery after two years of COVID pandemic.”
