Three Ilda Awards
ER Receive THREE ILDA 2019 Awards –
including WINNER of
Live TV Show for ‘X-Factor’
ER Productions has brought home THREE International Laser Display Association awards at this year’s ILDA Conference.
Founded in 1986, the International Laser Display Association (ILDA) is the world’s leading organisation dedicated to promoting the use of laser projectors in the fields of art, entertainment and education. The ILDA Awards themselves are the Oscars of the laser display industry, honouring companies and individuals from around the world for their hard work and achievements. This year’s Awards took place in Orlando, Florida, at the Orlando Lake Buena Vista Resort. ER Productions, launched in 2007 by Marc Webber and Ryan Hagan, were awarded three awards across two categories.
Hagan commented, “Winning Awards in the categories of Live Stage and Live TV Shows for the past several years now really shows the effort we have made in maintaining our Standards in the Touring and TV Industries.”
ER Productions’s ability to produce world-class laser shows was recognised in the Artistic Awards section, which covers virtually all aspects of modern laser displays, from the creation of individual laser graphics to the productions of huge outdoor shows.
ER were presented both 1st and 2nd place in the Best Live TV Show category, for the stunning laser design, programming and operation during this year’s series of X-Factor and Britains Got Talent. They also took home 2nd place in the Best Live Stage Show category, for the theatrical and immersive experience that was the Chemical Brothers 2018 World Tour.
“I am so proud of our amazing team yet again” continues Hagan. “Winning these awards is true credit to everyone involved in making these shows happen, from the Project Managers through to the warehouse, to the teams onsite”.
