World of Video & Audio, an event technology company based in Southern California, has acquired The Lighter Side, a lighting company founded in 2005. WOVA serves a range of clients, including Ferrari, FOX, Lionsgate, Netflix, Snapchat, Universal Pictures and others.

"The Lighter Side has long been looking for ways to diversify and expand their business. This alignment with WOVA is an incredible opportunity for both companies to expand strategically in the event industry,” says Jonathan Wolper, CEO, The Lighter Side. “The Lighter Side's lighting design sensibilities, attention to detail and precision combined with WOVA's A/V and event production innovations, will certainly provide clients with a service unmatched in quality within the world of lighting, A/V and event production.”

Both companies have seen an incredible amount of success over the years and hope the partnership will improve the quality of their customer service.

"The fusing of WOVA's event production capabilities with The Lighter Side's lighting production capabilities will elevate events to the next level and offer a total event solution for our clients," says Benjamin Parnassi, president and CEO, WOVA.

After 7 years of planning, the VanDyk Mortgage Convention Center is now open in downtown Muskegon. The official ribbon cutting took place on April 12, 2021.  

 

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic.
