Philips Lighting (Euronext Amsterdam ticker: LIGHT), a global leader in lighting,
recently announced its headline sponsorship of the TPi Awards 2017, the prestigious
awards for the live production industry.
Hosted by Total Production International (TPi) – a Mondiale Publishing title – the
Awards see more than a thousand guests come together each year to recognize the
achievements of professionals in entertainment production.
General Manager for Philips Entertainment Lighting Colin Kavanagh commented: “As
our business is at the forefront of entertainment technology, it is fitting that we
partner with the one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies and networking
events for the live production industry. The Awards celebrates the achievements of
talented individuals, creative teams and service companies in the entertainment
business and gives us further insights into what drives them so that we can continue
to respond with focused, meaningful and innovative technology.”
As a key sponsor of the event for the past two years, Philips Entertainment Lighting
invited guests to take part in its #CreateLight competition. Each table was
challenged to unleash their creativity on a box of glowsticks and live share the
results on social media, with the most cleverly crafted and original structure
crowned the winner.
The #CreateLight challenge will return to the 2017 event with a Hollywood glamour
theme, in homage to the stylish new Phillips VL6000 Beam luminaire. Guests will be
dared to ‘outshine’ the competition by using glowsticks to create luminous fashion
As well as sponsoring the evening awards dinner, Philips Entertainment Lighting has
partnered with TPi’s brand new venture – Daytime TPi – an exclusive event for
attendees of the evening ceremony. The event will offer business connectivity and
relevant discussions including two Question Time-style sessions in which leading
panellists from the industry will be answering audience-submitted questions.
The shortlists have now been revealed for the 27 awards categories, which include
Lighting Designer of the Year, Favorited Sound Rental Company and Stage Manager
of the Year. The winner of each category will be announced at London’s Battersea
Evolution in front of 1400 industry guests on February 27, 2017.
