Amazing Stage Fabrics in Motion

15 years of BEA

Brussels, Belgium
March 2013

The Benelux Event Awards celebrated its 15th anniversary in style. Lucky party goers witnessed an amazing edition of the Beas that will go down in special event history. Top names in the industry joined together to put on a spectacular show and a night to remember.

For the second year in a row, Paleis 10 at the Brussels Expo was transformed into a stunning event hall. ShowTex installed 800 m² of ShowLED Classic starcloth combined with semi-transparent Voile CS drapes for a warm glowing effect incorporating 5000 sparkling LED lights.

The night’s showstopper was undoubtedly the remarkable 10 m high DekoTaft Venetian contour curtain. ShowTex’s DekoTaft is an economically priced, flame retardant taffeta with a subtle sheen. Suspended in a cylinder shape on the innovative HiSpeed 8000 system from ShowTex, the Venetian motion and curtain scale made a big impact during the show.

The evening took place in an atmosphere set by 10 LED integrated TL XL inflatable tubes measuring 8m high, and a 20m x 10m Supermat Perforato front projection screen. ShowTex TL XL is a combination of Spinnaker and compact StageFlow ventilators. Spinnaker is made from 100% Trevira CS, so it’s permanently flame retardant and often used for inflatable objects. The fabric creates an attractive even spread of light from the integrated LEDs and is suitable for projections as well. High Output LEDs emit 12 times the light of standard Animation LEDs and give off a balanced and magical glow. ShowLED controllers are compatible with all media servers thanks to the V-Box interface.

During the opening reception and after party, guests were welcomed to the glitzy foyer decked out in gold LurexVoile 100 Crunch installed on the handy upgraded EasyDrape system. EasyDrape is now even easier to use thanks to the versatile coupler and telescopic horizontal drape supports with double hook-and-loop fastener. The flexible couplers make it possible to install the EasyDrape system in several directions at the same time allowing for multiple corners with one coupler. The red carpet backdrop featuring main BEA sponsor logos was also tensioned on the new EasyDrape finished off with circular floor bases.
