Hamburg Messe und Congress
Exhibition Hall A2 Shows Its Colors
We Get Every Room in the Right Mood
Hamburg is a future-oriented city with a long tradition and is home to many international companies. As a full-service provider with outstanding service in organizing and conducting national and international exhibitions and conferences, Hamburg Messe und Congress (HMC) GmbH is an important catalyst and success factor for the city. Exhibition hall A2 is a 3,700 square meter functional space, which needs to receive appropriate lighting for events. Amptown System Company accomplished the installation and integration of 104 LED wash lights that comply with the latest EU energy directives.
This event lighting – for large events as well as small, fine concepts – has to illuminate the hall ceiling as well as the walls in various hues. More than 16 million colors and a wide range of pure, uniform white tones with a variable linear color temperature can be realized with the powerful, self-contained IP65 LED wash lights. Equipped with 12 or 24 N RGBW LEDs, the luminaires are housed in an ultracompact and lightweight enclosure and offer a range of projection angles that can be quickly changed without tools. The spotlights were mounted on the cable routes that already existed in the hall or on the upper part of the walls, so that any standing constructions did not lead to shading. Additionally, a DMX network was installed. Several DMX plug-in fields/switches allow the system to be fed and patched at different positions. Thanks to additional connection points, further spotlights can use the power of color to make the exhibition hall shine brightly. In exhibition hall A2, events of any kind can thus be illuminated individually, atmospherically, and innovatively. More than 700,000 visitors a year enjoy the variety of events in the 11 light-flooded halls and the additional 10,000 square meters of outdoor space at HMC in the heart of Hamburg.
