A crowd of over 200 lighting professionals gathered in Belgium to mark the grand opening of Chauvet’s European headquarters, as well as the company’s 25th anniversary, by enjoying an evening of festivities, product demonstration, music and a breathtaking lightshow.
As Chauvet’s second European facility, the Belgium office will cater to demand in the Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg regions. In conjunction with Chauvet’s UK branch, the new office will also play a key role in servicing and supporting distributors elsewhere on the European mainland, with particular emphasis on France, Germany and Italy.
Among the highlights of the evening, guests enjoyed a light show using Chauvet fixtures, inauguration speeches from company founder and president, Albert Chauvet, and European general manager, Michael Brooksbank, as well as a guided tour and video presentation.
With the new Belgium premises, Chauvet hopes to capitalise on its increasingly strong position in the European market. ”We look forward to being able to serve the European lighting market better than ever through our Belgium facility,” commented Michael Brooksbank. “We’ve had a very successful start in Belgium, and judging by the positive reaction of all our guests, we’re hopeful this can be a blueprint for our future in Europe.”
