June 2012

SUNRISE, Fla. – CHAUVET® DJ, a leading manufacturer of LED lighting, announces the sponsorship of major event components at the 2012 DJ Expo taking place August 13 – 16 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. For the first time in DJ Expo history, CHAUVET® DJ will have an enormous booth (#714) filled with the latest, must-have DJ gear projecting vibrant washes, crisp gobos and ultra-bright beams.

The 2012 DJ Expo, presented by DJ Times, hosts over 25 educational seminars and features top audio, lighting, studio and specialty product manufacturers who offer the latest in cutting-edge technology. This year, CHAUVET® DJ takes the spotlight at one of the most exciting DJ trade shows in the United States.

For the second year in a row, CHAUVET® DJ hosts one of the show’s most anticipated events—the Promo Only party. In previous years, 50 Cent, Lady Gaga, Lil’ John, Naughty by Nature, Cyndi Lauper, Pete Wentz and Jason Derulo have taken to the stage for surprise performances. Attendees can expect a star-studded lineup again this year with performances by Sean Paul, Breathe Carolina and Outasight to name a few.

Additionally, CHAUVET® DJ is sponsoring the show’s main stage and two seminars delivered by DJ Mikey Mike. The DJ Times Square Stage, where talented artists in the industry perform, features an enormous stage illuminated with top of the line CHAUVET® DJ fixtures. CHAUVET® DJ partners with DJ Mikey Mike, one of the top mobile DJs in the industry and widely known for his instructional video series, to deliver a seminar providing DJs with tips to increase their bottom line by $10,000 and another on ShowXpress™.  During the first seminar, DJ Mikey Mike will provide DJs with tips to increase their gross sales by $10,000 and conduct a Nimbus™ demonstration. The second seminar is an instructional demonstration on ShowXpress™ — the software program that turns almost any computer or smartphone into a lighting console. DJ Mikey Mike and Allan Reiss, CHAUVET® DJ product manager, will cover basic DMX and how to create, store, control and play back a light show, programming, MIDI triggering, on-the-fly manipulations, layering and creating complex scenes and effects. The ShowXpress™ seminar features the completely wireless and battery-operated Freedom™ series, the powerful Intimidator™ Spot LED 150 moving heads and the Nimbus™ professional dry-ice machine.
