GSL Professional hosts Martin Open House

15 October
GSL Pro Middle East – Martin Open House – 15th May 2017, Dubai, UAE.

Having had recently acquired the remainder of the HARMAN professional brands – AMX and Martin, GSL Professional is well into an extraordinary period of change. In order to commemorate this, we held our first Martin Demonstration – ‘Martin Open House’ on the 10th of May this year. The purpose was also to demonstrate the various applications of this impressive product range to our current and prospective clients.

Preceding the event, a two-day Martin familiarization training was also organized for the GSL Professional Management, Sales, Marketing and Technical teams. The two-day workshop included fundamentals of lighting, service policies and procedures and the products in the Architainment and Entertainment segments in the lighting catalogues.

Leif Orkelborg Andresen – Business Development Manager, Henrik Kristensen – Head of Design & Application, Søren Engelbrecht Jensen – Project Manager, Design & Application of Harman Professional flew down from Denmark, to give us a handover and also to conduct the trainings.

“For GSL Professional, this day was an opportunity to introduce to our partners, from across the UAE and the GCC, the Martin Products from the entertainment Lighting and architectural product,” commented  Oumar Ndiongue, Engineering Manager, GSL Professional. “The Creative Pixel garnered quite a bit of  attention from the audience due to the ease of the setup and the quality of the LED pixel Products. In return of this success, GSL will focus some dedicated trainings to their Partners for some high-Tech Martin Products, the agenda will be published soon.”

“On the occasion of this day, GSL also unveiled the first Exterior Projection 500 just released by Martin. GSL will definitely focus on our existing showroom to serve as  a quality experience center for Martin products,” he added.

The Open House was hugely successful as the showroom was packed with lighting enthusiasts. It was especially memorable because the members of GSL Professional reconnected with many clients from across the UAE. The attendees were given and a ‘hands-on’ demonstration for the most popular products from the catalogue. Oumar, Lief and Soren presented the superiority of Martin Lights while going over the advantages and applications of the professional lighting system.

Among the products demonstrated were the Martin Thrill Series; the LED’S; Lighting Controllers; Linear and Image Projection.

“The Open House event has provided GSL Professional an opportunity to introduce themselves as the distributor for Harman Lighting and AMX Controls for the GCC Region. During the event we were fortunate that many of our existing clients as well as our potential clients attended. Overall it was a very successful open house and there will be additional special events in the next coming months.
