PURE Nightclub 'Perfect Venue' for Digi-Key's PURE Lighting Technology Symposium

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - May 4, 2010

On May 13, 2010, the notorious PURE Nightclub Caesars Palace in Las Vegas will become a beacon for professionals in the lighting industry as Digi-Key Corporation PURE Lighting Technology Symposium focuses on top lighting suppliers and ground-breaking lighting solutions.

Digi-Key's PURE Lighting Technology Symposium will be illuminated by the dramatic lighting themes featured inside PURE Nightclub. When entering the nightclub, attendees of the symposium will experience a 'pure' lighting theme with simple, dynamic theatrical fixtures lighting the corridor to the White Room, the vivid center of PURE Nightclub.

"Known for its impressive lighting themes, PURE Nightclub Caesars Palace is the perfect venue for Digi-Key's PURE Lighting Technology Symposium," said Tony Harris, Digi-Key's chief marketing officer. "This venue allows Digi-Key to literally put a spotlight on our lighting suppliers and lighting solutions."

PURE Nightclub uses more than 40 intelligent lighting fixtures including Martin Mac 300 Washes, DMX programmable moving light fixtures used for providing a wide range of soft-focus color mixing, zoom and strobe effects, as well as a wide field of coverage in small spaces without losing intensity.

PURE also uses Martin Mac 250 Spots, which are DMX programmable moving light fixtures with variable focus beams, dichroic color wheels and rotating gobo pattern wheels. Martin Atomic 3000 strobe lights with color scrollers provide stunning lighting effects on the dance floor, and Martin Wizard Extremes are used because of their large number of gobo pattern and color wheel combinations to provide an endless number of lighting arrangements.

Each room within PURE Nightclub exhibits some of the lighting industry's most innovative lighting solutions in stylish, vibrant fixtures and applications. The White Room is known for its simple, sophisticated style, while the Red Room, secluded from the main nightclub, features an ambient red glow from elegant chandeliers and provides a private VIP area for those looking for a more luxurious, refined atmosphere. The Terrace allows guests to experience the nightclub atmosphere outdoors with the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip as its backdrop.

"PURE Nightclub embodies Digi-Key's ideal of lighting technology at its best," said Dave Doherty, Digi-Key's vice president of semiconductor product. "It is a fitting venue to bring together professionals from the lighting industry, ranging from lighting designers and engineers to stage lighting technicians and electricians, for Digi-Key's PURE Lighting Technology Symposium."
