Creative Events was contracted by WMP to supply all the technical equipment (lights, audio, projectors and LED screens) and technicians for the Vodafone IPO launch event. The event was set up in an amazing tent at the Dhow Port to attract as much attention as possible in and around Doha on 17 March 2009.
“We had the pleasure of working with William Martin Productions on the Vodafone event, which I consider a success. The lighting effects and ambience we achieved using Clay Paky lights was astounding,” says Jalal Dudin, Managing Director of Creative Events. “We used thirty-four Clay Paky Alpha Spot 1200s, twelve Alpha Wash 1200s and eight Alpha Beam 300s to illuminate the tent,” says Michel Khairallah, Light Technician at Creative Events.
Creative Events is an equipment rental firm and subsidiary of the Creative Communication Group, Clay Paky’s sole exclusive sales agent in Qatar. Creative Events recently decided to increase the number of lights in its existing Clay Paky range and add new models, including the Alpha Spot 1200, Alpha Profile 1200, Alpha Wash 1200, Alpha Wash 300, Alpha Beam 300 and Alpha Spot 300. The company can now count on a total of 246 Clay Paky moving head units.
“We have been using Clay Paky professional lighting systems for the past eight years and they have significantly changed the way we put on our events, not to mention our after sales service,” says Jalal Dudin. “Creative Events was chosen to represent Clay Paky in Qatar as a result of a long-standing business relationship. We are very pleased to represent a world level reference brand in the industry,” he adds.
Creative Events is directed by Jalal Dudin and is a major player in Qatar and the Middle East for live professional sound and light rental requirements. It provides a wide range of products and services, and has been involved in world-class theatrical shows in Qatar, with artists including Luciano Pavarotti and José Carreras, and in staging important operas and ballets with international touring companies, including the Bolshoi Ballet.
By ordering more than sixty Clay Paky moving head units, Creative Events has now increased its Clay Paky inventory and become the largest owner of Clay Paky lighting equipment in the Middle East.
