May 1, 2003 saw the opening of CLAY PAKY UAE, the new branch in the United Arab Emirates, founded by the Italian leader in professional lighting. Clay Paky has gained years of prestige in the flourishing Emirates market, which particularly appreciates the company’s quality, efficiency and style. Clay Paky decided to open its own branch there in order to provide more presence and support as it acquires an ever-greater market share. The new branch manager, Egor Popowsky, has extensive experience in professional, architectural and entertainment lighting.

Clay Paky UAE is based in Dubai and has a showroom for presenting its systems “live”, as well as making demonstrations and immediate comparisons with all the various technologies available. Clay Paky UAE is also setting up a selected network of business partners to develop projects all over the country in professional fields such as the theatre, TV, concerts, live events, dance halls and architectural lighting.

Clay Paky’s sales manager for the Middle East, Alberico D’Amato, comments: ”The UAE has turned out to be a dynamic, evolving and expanding market, despite being relatively young and inexperienced. Clay Paky has almost thirty years of experience in lighting, so we will certainly benefit from this growth. We will also be able to study projects at close hand and offer our support by providing a prompt service and more competitive prices.”
