A.C. Lighting Inc. Receives 2015 CITT Supplier Achievement Award

CITT president, Michael Harris, presenting the award to A.C. Lighting Inc.'s chief operating officer, Penny Watier.

Toronto-based North American entertainment technologies reseller, A.C. Lighting Inc., has been honored by the Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology with its 2015 CITT Supplier (Corporate) Achievement Award.

Each year the organization recognizes individuals and companies that excel in their field of live performance in Canada.

The CITT Supplier (Corporate) Achievement Award -- which is voted for by its members -- recognizes the sustained commitment and contribution a supplier has made to the Canadian cultural industries community with its quality services, as well as the support it has shown to the organization over the years.

A.C. Lighting Inc.'s Chief Operating Officer, Penny Watier, received the award on the behalf of the company at the CITT 2015 Awards banquet, which followed the organization's Rendez-Vous 2015 annual conference and trade show -- this year held at the Vancouver Convention Center in British Columbia from August 20 - 22.

Michael Harris, CITT president, commented: "Over the years, A.C. Lighting Inc. has been an avid supporter of CITT. It has always been part of the CITT's annual trade show, has sponsored CITT events numerous times, as well as provided professional development opportunities to CITT members with its seminars on LEDs -- presented by its managing director, JF Canuel. The appointment of industry veteran, Penny Watier as Chief Operating Officer in 2013 has further contributed towards strengthening the company's relationship with CITT / ICTS. It is always a pleasure to collaborate with A.C. Lighting."

"The A.C. Lighting team in Toronto truly cares about our organization, its members, and the industry, which is why we wish to honor and celebrate them, and why we feel that they are deserving of the CITT Supplier (Corporate) Achievement Award for 2015. We thank you."

Formed in 1990, CITT is a national arts service organisation that actively promotes the professional development of its members and works for the betterment of the Canadian live performance community.

A.C. Lighting Inc.'s Watier commented: "I am extremely proud and delighted to receive this award on behalf of the entire team at A.C. Lighting Inc. To be voted the recipients by members of the Canadian Institute for Theatre Technology / Institut canadien des technologies Scénographiques is a real honor. The team at A.C. Lighting prides itself on always striving to deliver the highest possible level of customer service and support. To be publicly acknowledged in this way by our industry peers is very special -- we are privileged to work with fantastic people in this industry who constantly push the creative boundaries of what's possible with the leading entertainment technologies that we supply. We thank you for this award and your support!"

A.C. Lighting Inc. is the exclusive North American reseller for technology solutions including Chroma-Q LED lighting, Jands Vista lighting and media control, ArKaos media servers, LumenRadio wireless DMX systems, and Prolyte staging and trussing.

The company -- which relocated last year to a larger facility in order to meet growing demand for its portfolio of exclusive brands -- carries a vast stockholding of the latest entertainment and architectural lighting, rigging, and video solutions for stage and theatre, film and television, worship, exhibition, and commercial applications.
