GSL hosts an open house for Martin
UAE: GSL Professional recently staged its first demonstration of Martin Professional Lighting products, having acquired the rights to represent Martin and AMX, completing its Harman distribution portfolio. The event, dubbed Martin Open House, was held to introduce the manufacturer’s products to the distributor’s existing and potential clients.
Business development manager Leif Orkelborg Andresen, head of design and application Henrik Kristensen, and project manager, design and application Søren Engelbrecht Jensen from Harman Professional all flew in from Denmark for the two-day workshop. The seminar covered the fundamentals of lighting, service policies and procedures as well as products in the manufacturer’s ‘architainment’ and entertainment catalogues.
‘For GSL Professional, this was an opportunity to introduce to our partners from across the UAE and the GCC to the Martin products from the entertainment lighting and architectural ranges,’ said Oumar Ndiongue, engineering manager at GSL Professional. He went on to note that the event was also used to unveil Martin Professional’s new Exterior Projection 500 in the region and that GSL will be reconfiguring its showroom to serve as an experience centre for the Harman brand.
‘Overall it was a very successful open house,’ concluded Kurt Wilson, GSL’s director of business development. ‘The event has provided GSL Professional with an opportunity to introduce themselves as the distributor for Harman lighting and AMX controls for the GCC region. During the event we were fortunate that many of our existing clients as well as our potential clients attended.’
