Kinesys & Drifter Rigging to Host Demo Day in Toronto

KinesysAutomation specialist Kinesys is staging its first product awareness demonstration in Canada on July 8th, 2017. The goal is to make people aware that Kinesys products have “officially landed” in Canada and are available through Toronto’s Drifter Rigging.

The Demo Day is a collaboration between David Bond, who runs Kinesys’ North American operation, and Mark “Drifter” Desloges from Drifter Rigging, a new rental operation recently established in Toronto with a selection of Kinesys equipment. It will be held in a warehouse facility at 100 Carson St., Unit A, in Etobicoke.

The demo is geared towards lighting designers, production managers, production companies, and anyone else potentially interested in the brand and its capabilities.

The objectives of the day include introducing people to Kinesys as a brand and highlighting the company’s current range of intelligent rigging and automation solutions, including the new Apex system. The system was launched at Prolight+Sound Frankfurt this year with a new hoist controller and two new chain hoists.

There will be a live demo of the Apex system in action, where attendees will be able to get close up and technical with it while Bond and Desloges are on hand to answer queries.
