We spoke to Deepak Sony, president, and Adam Moodhe, sales director, DecorsUSA on their plans for the region.
“The reason we decided to participate at The Hotel Show is because over the past 24 months we got a lot of potential enquiries from the region and we have also finalised a couple of orders here,” Sony said.
“We wanted to come to the Middle East and when we looked up trade events, The Hotel Show came up as the most relevant one. There is so much potential here, with major expansion plans and new projects in the pipeline, the region looks very promising,” he added.
The US based company launched new products in the past few months and Moodhe gives us the details saying: “This year we came out with a new product called the the Dual Light. We have been getting a lot of requests from hotels about this product as they want to be able to split some colours, like have one colour going up and another going down. In some cases, they would want to have the colours from their branding, but also want to be able to put some white light in their walkways, without having to get multiple lights. With our new product, we give them the opportunity to do that with one light. Additionally, we have also been able to design a parking lot light that will provide a greater lumen or light output at a lower wattage. We are able to replace a 400 watt or 600 watt HID or sodium vapour light with 120 watts of LED lights which actually gives a better, brighter, and more crisp light, so when people arrive in the space, they feel safe walking through the parking lot and they don’t have dark shadows around.
“Moreover, with LED, you don’t have to change the bulbs. All the maintenance contracts to have someone change a bulb every 6-8 months will not be required anymore. Our particular lights are warranted for five years and we anticipate they can go on for 12-15 years.”
