Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any event. It sets the mood and creates ambience. While the wrong lighting can take the wind from attendees’ sails as soon as they walk into the venue, the right lighting can create a great first impression and set the tone for a successful event.

The modern trend is to move away from the old, static, cumbersome lighting to LED lighting. LED lighting has certain benefits that literally can light up an event. These benefits include the following:

More colour options

LED lighting offers more colour options from a single fixture than is available when using incandescent or halogen fixtures. Because it uses RGBW LED chips, you can literally play with a rainbow of colours!

More special effects

With LED lighting you can move the lamp and its lens around “intelligently” thanks to a moving or intelligent head. Movements can be pre-programmed and activated with the press of a button. All this means that spectacular displays are possible at a fraction of the time and energy.

Portable (when powered by battery)

Tripping over cords and getting all tangled up is a thing of the past, as LED lighting can be powered by battery. This also makes it fully portable. it can be operated with the control panel or any mobile phone or tablet with the correct software.

More energy efficient

Unlike incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. LEDs are directional light sources, emitting light in only one direction. It is about 10 times as efficient as its tungsten equivalents and allows you to have more lighting fixtures with brighter output. This saves a lot of energy.

More cost-effective

Because LED lighting uses less energy, it is more cost-effective. LED lighting is also cheaper to manufacture and replace, making it the wallet-friendly option.

More durable

As LED lighting doesn’t have fragile components such as filaments and glass, it is tougher and last longer. It is not as sensitive to vibration, heat or shocks – which are all very common when setting up and implementing the lighting at events.

Longer lasting

LED lighting can last hundreds of hours longer than its counterparts – the life span of a single incandescent light is 1 000 hours, while an LED light can last for more than 60 000 hours.

Emits less heat

LED lighting also saves you money on cooling sources – they are virtually cool to the touch (therefore more accident-free and safer around kids) which reduces the risks of burns and fires. In contrast, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat.
