ULA Group supplies Robe to Microhire

ULA Group has won the contract to supply the latest Robe LED lighting technology to Microhire QLD to be used as the in house lighting inventory at the Royal International Convention Centre (RICC) in Brisbane.

After tight negotiations and evaluation of all major products in the market, Microhire decided to make their investment in the latest Robe LED lighting  “This lighting purchase will place RICC as one of the most sustainable venues in Australia in terms of its event lighting being the latest in green technology”, stated Russell Bennett, Microhire QLD General Manager.

Microhire had been awarded the contract as the in-house AV supplier for RICC earlier this year. The newly released Robe fixtures will be used as a part of the permanent lighting installation in the movable truss grid system in the halls of RICC. The recently acquired lighting set includes 30x Robin 300 LEDWash Plus fixtures, 24x Robin DLX Spots, 6x Robin DLS Profiles and 12 Robin MMX Wash Beam fixtures.

The combination of Robe’s reliability and reputation and the ULA Group’s local service and support was not the only factor in brokering the deal. The new technology LED product assembled in the lighting rig offers significant savings on overall operational costs. The versatility of the fixtures, their compact size, low power consumption, t light lifespan and minimum ongoing maintenance costs offer additional saving for both Microhire and the RICC venue.
