The sixteenth edition of the trade fair CUE is already behind us. Which marked the start of a festive year with Controllux. The Swefog and Controllux team wishes to thank the many visitors for coming to the stand.
The three-day exhibition for event, installation and entertainment technology offered a great overview of the latest technical advances for both indoor and outdoor productions. Technicians, operators, designers, enthusiasts and a lot of great aspiring young individuals as well as students from the performing arts sectors had the great pleasure of discussing projects, learning about new equipment and celebrating Controllux’s 50-year anniversary as well as the start of a great year for show and lighting design.
As with any anniversary, Controllux celebrated with cake, both an edible version and a symbolic version. Centered in their stand was a 3-storey cake divided into the six pillars of Controllux’s expertise; theater, TV & movie, entertainment, architectural, rigging and consumables. Each pillar decorated with suitable products and educative material. Swefog’s touring series of products with the Duramax 1k8 and bag in box fluids were part of the entertainment section and provided haze for the Robe showroom. Not only were new and exciting lighting equipment in use but throughout the stand were disassembled fixtures on display helping visitors learn about the innovative technology behind today’s lighting effects.
Bag in box is a unique packaging form for haze and fog fluids. Some of the features presented at CUE 2018 follows; the SmartBib fluid solution provides increased shelf life, is completely leak-proof, prevents use of wrong fluid, and is a more environmentally friendly packaging solution compared to traditional plastic cans. Today, we decrease plastic usage with 35% using these containers. But we are looking to increase this number with a new design to 78% this year.
If you are interested in learning more, we invite you to ask as many questions as possible and experience Swefog’s atmospheric effects together with the knowledgeable team of experts from Controllux. Always ready and happy to help.
