Salesforce: World Tour 2015

Exhibitions Salesforce

Project Overview

  • For the third consecutive year, Blinding Light was approached by Matrix UK Solutions to provide lighting and mains distribution for the European leg of the Salesforce World Tour.
  • Blinding Light’s team was led by Anthony (Turbo) Hall as it travelled to various venues across Europe including the Amsterdam RAI, London’s ExCeL, the Port de Versailles in Paris and the Munich Messe.
  • Each venue had multiple areas to light including an exhibition space with 180 generic fixtures, 12 moving lights with custom gobos and 120 LED uplighters. Mains distribution also had to be supplied in this area to support up to five separate demo theatres.
  • A number of breakout rooms were also given generic light coverage and LED uplighters, while a Hands-On room required mains distribution to be provided to over 100 seats.
  • There were also a number of VIP areas to light as well as public spaces such as café and networking zones.
  • Blinding Light worked closely with Jamie Gaskins and Henri Cooper at Matrix throughout the tour as they dealt with a number of logistical challenges and an ever evolving brief.
