With products from all three manufacturers on the company's booth, A.C. Lighting Inc.'s Bob Gordon was in a delighted mood. "Each of these manufacturers has a different set of products aimed firmly at dedicated market areas, where A.C. Lighting Inc. have a substantial presence.

Topping the year off, it has further been announced that the grandma has won the prestigious 1999 EDDY award for Lighting Control Console Of The Year from American magazine, Entertainment Design. International Sales Manager for MA Lighting, Martina Luetge, said, "LDI has been a great show for us. The appointment of such a powerful sales organisation as A.C.
