USA – Prolyte Group hosted its first North American Campus event on truss training in Orlando last month, just one day prior to the opening of InfoComm.

Organised in co-operation with its North American distributor A.C. Lighting Inc., the event had an impressive list of participants.

The Prolyte Campus event was accredited by both ESTA (ETCP) as well as InfoComm (CTS), offering continuing education credits and interesting and high-standing content that is recognised by industry bodies as well as those who participated.

Lecturer Ruud de Deugd performed an inspiring session on the technical aspects of using truss, from recognising the different types of loading, calculating cantilevers to slinging methods, connection types and regulations, using his practical experiences to address common and recognisable issues.

“A brilliant way to learn more about the range of trussing available from Prolyte and learn the tips and tricks that will help you take your designs to the next level” comments Matthijs Meijer, account manager North America of Prolyte Group, “There is a great demand for growing knowledge and creating both awareness and clarity within the industry. The Prolyte Campus offers this and I can safely say the first North American Prolyte Campus was a great success.”

As Patrick Ostwald, production manager of Specialized Audio Visual Inc. commented: ”This Prolyte Campus was a worthwhile experience for me. Not only was it great to be a part of the first one organised in the US, I certainly learned a lot too. It was great to not only get a refresher on rigger skills and associated practices, but also great to learn about the product offered by Prolyte and how they can be used together. I think sometimes truss doesn’t get the best wrap, because it’s something you need in order to accomplish lighting, audio, video etc., but having a good structure to start with is very important. That’s why we like Prolyte.”

“We see a growing interest for the Verto truss,” comments Fred Mikeska, V.P. of US sales and marketing of A.C. Lighting Inc., now that we have the truss in stock and out in the field we’re confident in this game-changing product. People are just amazed at the advantages the truss offers, like the tool-less, quiet assembly and the building speed. As a distributor, it’s a pleasure to work with products that can make such a difference for your customers.”

Prolyte Group and A.C. Lighting will host a next Prolyte Campus Event in November this year, during the LDI Trade Show and Conference.
