Outline & PRG confirm partnership
18 October 2012
USA / Italy - Outline S.r.l. and US subsidiary, Outline North America, LLC, have entered into an agreement with Production Resource Group (PRG).
The centre of activities for this new relationship will be at PRG's expansive Las Vegas facility, the hub of PRG's touring sound business, where a fully complemented turn-key system of Outline GTO, GTO-SUBS, Butterfly, MANTAS, DBS18-2 Subs and recently introduced LipFill-0182, will be inventoried and staged for immediate deployment for PRG's most demanding production and touring requirements.
A joint launch of the GTO and Outline partnership is planned to coincide with the upcoming LDI Show and Parnelli Awards in Las Vegas. A Stageline Mobile Stage, with a full Outline GTO rig, will be set up on the grounds of the PRG complex. Transportation to and from the PRG compound from the Las Vegas Convention Center will be provided as a courtesy to invitees, and those wishing to experience GTO.
"Timing could not be better to announce this relationship," says Tim Brennan, PRG vice president. "Many of our clients, production managers and contemporaries with whom we have a professional trading relationship will be in town for LDI. This is the perfect opportunity for us to introduce them to the quality and unique engineering expertise of Outline and its GTO."
"We are very excited to enter into this relationship with PRG," says Giorgio Biffi, CEO of Outline S.r.l. "This comes at a very exciting time for our company, as we continue our global growth initiative with the addition of many of the world's largest premier sound and production companies. PRG is a wonderful and welcomed addition to our family of Outline partners."
PRG is joined by the recent addition of GABISOM, the largest production company in South America, reinforcing that Outline and its GTO systems are deployed in major events around the globe.
"I have seen the incredible growth of PRG over the years and am very pleased to have them help lead the charge for our large format line array, the GTO, in the US," says Outline's North America Sr. Vice President - Partner and Managing Director, Tom Bensen."We appreciate PRG's confidence in our company and their shared vision for the future as we begin this relationship."
