Cine Gear Expo 2018: Moving Technology Forward

In order for technology to move forward in our field it takes an army of professionals in many areas to meet at times in order to exchange ideas. Opportunities like this may seem to the public as a chance to simply sell product but for us they mean a lot more. Technology drives the lighting industry and events like Cine Gear Expo 2018 are necessary so that we too can meet and discuss trends and innovations with our peers. That is why we support this year’s expo and are proud to be one of its many exhibitors. This year’s Cine Gear Expo will be held from May 31 – June 3, 2018 amidst some of the most important and innovative companies and leaders in the fields of Digital Media, Film, Entertainment, Post Production, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Government and Military, Sports and Live Events

The Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibit: Embracing Changes

Established in 1995, the Guangzhou international Lighting Exhibition is perhaps the most influential and comprehensive lighting exhibition in all of Asia. That is why we support it and the theme of this year’s event which is ‘embracing change.’ This year’s exhibition will be held from 9 to 12 June 2018 amidst some of the most important thought leaders in the field of lighting. However, as the theme of this year’s event suggest, the exhibition is about more than vendors putting their products out in front of the public. It is about giving leaders in the industry a look at what others in our field are doing and perhaps learning to grow from those ideas and products. That is what embracing change is all about.

This point is important for all of us to embrace and we do at Ratpac Dimmers. Our Strand Dimmers have evolved just as the rest of our technologies continue to do so. We also offer dimmer rental for companies who wish to avail themselves of the latest in wireless lighting technology.
