The 26th annual World Travel Awards recently took place in the island nation of Mauritius and the tropical surroundings were made even more enticing with a dress of Elation dynamic lighting designed and delivered by Seven Amps Ltd.
Seven Amps, a Mauritian gear rental and integrated systems provider, provided all the technical equipment for the event, which included outdoor lighting for the venue’s stately Manor House and cocktail area, as well as lighting for the awards ceremony at the indoor marquee. The company also handled decorative and branding elements for the awards event.
Held June 1st at the Sugar Beach Hotel in the seaside village of Flic-en-Flac, Seven Amps chose an array of Elation lighting fixtures for the awards event, along with lighting from sister company ADJ, as well as Duratruss.
“We needed an IP-rated LED Par light and wash panel for the outdoor lighting and chose Elation SixPars and ADJ Hex Panels, both weatherproof products that performed very good,” said Mervyn Palan of Seven Amps. “Inside at the awards ceremony, we had a rig of Elation LED Fresnels, Profiles and Pars with Beam and Spot moving heads. We are happy with the Elation products and their performance and push it wherever we go!”
Outdoors, 40 IP65-rated SixPar 300IP™ LED Par lights lit the cocktail area and live band entertainment while 20 SixPar 200IP™ and 12 ADJ 32 HEX Panel IP fixtures illuminated the long Manor House facade. Twelve Elation Design LED Strips and 6 IP65-rated Elar EX Tribar linear LED lights were used at the photo, interview and winners booths.
Indoors at the marquee, where a presentation stage and tables were set up for the awards ceremony, 8 Elation DW Fresnel™, 4 WW Profile™ and 4 LED SixPar 300IP™ were used for front and side lighting onto the stage with 8 Platinum HFX™, 8 Platinum Beam 15R Extreme™ moving heads and 5 Fuze Par Z175 providing back lighting. Some 52 ADJ Par Z120 RGBW provided table and house lighting.
Recognized as a hallmark of excellence in the travel industry, the World Travel Awards ceremony in Mauritius was a regional event for Africa & the Indian Ocean with the grand final event to take place in Oman in November 2019. “This project was a big challenge for us as it was an international bid with top local and foreign companies bidding,” Mervyn Palan sums up. “We scored the highest technical marks and over and above we achieved a great show!”
