#HSL30 – HSL celebrates its 30th Birthday …


Leading UK lighting and visuals rental specialist HSL celebrates its 30th Birthday … and to mark this fantastic achievement, two special Open Days are being staged at HSL’s HQ in Blackburn – on 3rd and 4th October 2018.

This will include a Supplier Showcase, a lively expo-style environment located in HSL’s stunning Gallery Space – complete with panoramic views across the undulating Lancashire countryside just outside of Blackburn – where HSL’s industry partners will demonstrate and highlight their latest technologies and innovations.

Famous brands like Robe, Philips, Martin, Claypaky, Chauvet, High End Systems, ETC, Avolites, MA Lighting and many more will have a presence in this relaxed, convivial and highly social atmosphere featuring 32 x stands and three bars.

Other highlights will include guided tours of the 165,000 square feet HSL premises including its extensive training facilities, warehouse and prep areas.

There will be presentations by different companies within the HSL Group including PSI, SPR and GLS, illustrating the diversity and specialist skills available within this dynamic organisation.
