Barbizon Lighting maybe bucking the trend of cutting back, laying off, and generally suffering economically, as the company’s South Florida effort has ramped up by opening a new location in Miramar.
There will even be an official launch event all day with sessions and demos on Thursday, February 26, with a Barbizon Lighting’s Ultimate Equipment Show, or BLUE, Show.
“We’re really excited to finally be settled and invite our customers see the new Miami facility,” Barbizon president Jonathan Resnick said yesterday in an email to Live Design. “Our south Florida team has done a great job getting the office, demo room, and warehouse ready for the end of the month. One reason why we chose this new location is its centrally located in the Dade/Broward Metroplex providing easier access for all of our customers. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone the 26th.”
Manufacturers scheduled to be on hand include: Apollo, Arri, Cartoni, Chauvet, City Theatrical, Coemar/Inner Circle, DeSisti, Electronic Theatre Controls, InterAmerica Stage, Kobold, Lee Filters, Lex Products, Martin, Mole Richardson, Osram, Phllips, Pixel Range, Robe, Rosco, SeaChanger, Selecon, Ushio, Videssence, and Wybron. The Florida Film Production Coalition will be on hand to talk about their work on the Florida film production tax incentive efforts. A raffle for attendees will also be held.
All BLUE Show Sessions are being held in Barbizon South Florida’s Demo room. For more information on registering and the full schedule visit Barbizon’s Florida website or call 800-535-4083.The new location is 11551 Interchange Circle South, Miramar, FL 33025.
