Once again this year a top-class jury of seven Swiss event professionals came together to vote on this year’s XAVER Award, which recognizes outstanding achievements in the fields of live communication in the Alpine region.
In a total of seven categories, the jury — chaired by Claus Holtmann — awarded various finalists, such as the Athletics World Cup 2014 (in the category “Best Supplier Project”), the Toasted Challenge, a fun sports event that scooped the “Best Public Event” award and Public XAVER award chosen by the audience. Technical service provider for the glitzy event at the Messe Zürich was Winkler Multi Media Events AG from Wohlen, and Roni Huber the Senior Project Leader and Key Account Manager at Winkler, called on GLP’s latest X4 Bar 20 LED battens.
In an entertaining and captivating stage show each of the nominated projects was presented in front of the jury before they announced the respective winners. The heart of the show stage was a projection screen, framed by a total of 16 of the new X4 Bars.
For Roni Huber it was clear that for this event just any strip light would not have sufficed. “It had to be something appropriate and special for the occasion,” he said. “The X4 Bars have an incredible punch and in tight beam mode they cut impressively through the room.”
After the successful XAVER event, it became clear to Huber that Winkler needed to invest in these Bars. So they immediately ordered 92 pieces of X4 Bar 20, which are now available from Winkler’s rental fleet.
