PRG Netherlands held an Open House event this past Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th of May. Customers, Freelancers, Light Designers and other contacts from our industry came to visit our offices in Utrecht. This event was also the opportunity to launch the name PRG Netherlands, since the former EML Productions is now fully integrated within the Production Resource Group.
The guests were guided through the company via a red carpet and arrived into a virtual warehouse.
“The virtual warehouse shows the capacities and availability that PRG has in terms of audiovisual material. PRG Netherlands has chosen to operate with the warehouses located in Germany and in Belgium, in order to meet the requirements and wishes of our Dutch clients more efficiently. Integrating our resources into the European equipment pool, will grant us unlimited access and we therefore will be able to focus on providing the best service to our customers.” stipulates Duncan Verstraeten, General Manager, PRG Netherlands.

PRG NL also features its’ state-of-the-art proprietary products. One of the latest innovations is the GroundControl™ Followspot System, which could be tested during the Open House event. A PRG high output PRG Bad Boy® Spot connected with a camera and operated in a remote location. This allows Designers to have total creative freedom to put followspots in places that were either previously unusable or involved complex rigging. The system consists of 3 parts: a Remote Spot Luminaire, a GC Truss Box and a GC Followspot Controller.
The PRG Netherlands team had also built a Lighting Studio featuring the PRG Bad Boy, PRG Best Boy HP, the PRG Best Boy Wash and the Icon Beam for hands-on-testing, controlled by a GrandMa2. The guests were also introduced to the new WYSIWYG studio, which is at disposal for our clients.
Alongside the new PRG Netherlands, our guests had the opportunity to meet the new Account Manager, Rob Harks. Before joining PRG, Rob was active in sales in the domain of the exhibition and event industry. He has worked for the rental company Expo Gamma, the trade fair center MECC in Maastricht and the stand builder Total Concept.
Last but not least, the guests enjoyed a fresh Belgian beer and delicious Belgian fries. The Open House was a great success and we would like to thank everyone who came to visit us!
