PRG Alliance members do great events all year long, but three of them deserve special attention. During this spring PRG got the support from the PRG Alliance members in Korea, Portugal and in Italy to deliver outstanding productions.
The second Condé Nast International Luxury Conference held in Seoul on April 20th and 21st 2016 focused on the future of luxury, and the role of Northeast Asia as a new hub for fashion. PRG’s services included full turnkey solutions in Audio, Video, Lighting, Rigging, Staging and Scenography for this event.
PRG China’s technical director Simon Kayser led the project counting on PRG Alliance members Ally & Co. and Total Korea Lighting & Sound Co. to deliver the most optimal solution. The hard work paid off with a smooth operation living up to the client’s expectation.

Portugal was the stage of Rock in Rio, a large music festival originated in Rio de Janeiro. Since 2004 PRG provides lighting and video technology at festivals in Rio de Janeiro, Madrid, Las Vegas and Lisbon.
The 2016 edition marked the 30th anniversary of the festival and received more than 329 thousand people in two consecutive weekends of May in Lisbon.

Another great impression was delivered in Italy on 11-13 May, on a show projected into the most remarkable building in Rome: the Coliseum. The spectacle was called “Colosseum Light Message – Love to Humanity, Love to Earth” and celebrated the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations agreement between Italy and Japan.
PRG Alliance member STS Communication and New Light Group managed the entire technical production of the event - including projection mapping, audio and lighting systems, generators and scaffolding. They provided full support to the Japanese producers Motoko Ishii e Akari-Lisa Ishii, long term clients of PRG Japan and also the producers of similar shows in France, Germany and Switzerland.

“We are happy to see more collaboration among PRG Alliance members” says Tom Van Hemelryck, PRG Alliance Director. “The clients appreciate the initiative to look for local support in expertise, equipment and crew. It optimizes the project costs and brings to the event a local knowledge that is very important when doing events abroad”, he concludes.
