Stockholm International Congress Centre chooses Robe
Stockholm International Fairs and Congress Centre (Stockholmsmässan) is an expo and conference facility in Älvsjö, a southern suburb of Stockholm, with four halls, the longest of which stretches 365 metres. They own a substantial amount of rigging and production technology and have a full time staff of 25 Riggers, overseen - together with crew from other technical departments - by head of production, Fredrik Zetterberg (pictured).
Over the last two years Stockholmsmässan has invested in 48 Robe moving lights - 36 x Vivas and 12 x DL4S profiles - which were specified by Zetterberg. He and his team used the 2016 LLB expo (a trade show for audio, video and lighting), as an opportunity to light the main bar area with a selection of different Robe fixtures, giving the chance to see and try out a few options in situ.
From this, a more refined moving light wish-list emerged which had an LED source requirement right at the top. “Fixtures are on 10 hours a day or more for shows and we needed economical and green to run lighting,” Zetterberg states.
As well as numerous expositions which include The Furniture Fair that utilizes around 3000 metres of trussing and 3000 lights and an annual car/motorcycle show that consumes 3000 plus points and keeps a rigging crew of 70-80 working around the clock, Stockholmsmässan services a host of gala dinners, awards shows, bands and sometimes music TV shows.
