Filed under: Uncategorized — Samira Kiger @ 11:55 am



Mercer-Zimmerman would like to invite you to one the most exciting Brio Luncheons that we have offered in years. We would like to welcome Fred Foster, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of ETC (Electronic Theatre Controls) to our last luncheon of the year. Fred is a very animated speaker and as you will see, is very passionate about this presentation.

Fred will be presenting the “Layers of Light” campaign that you won’t want to miss. It is a philosophy about the best quality of light and the layers of tools required to create it. Since the original presentation by Fred at PLASA 2011 in London, this presentation has appeared in four industry magazines. ETC offers LED lighting for architectural and theatrical applications and we will be discussing the integration of it into the lighting world. This presentation is geared towards anyone who is interested in creating beautifully lit spaces.

Please see attached invite and RSVP to skiger@mzltg.com ASAP as we feel we may fill over capacity.
