The International Laser Display Association - abbreviated ILDA - has turned 30 years yesterday.
Congratulations and thank you for the efforts during the past years!
The show laser industry has changed a lot in the last years and the change process is still ongoing. It's not always easy for an industry association to cope with such tremendous changes to a market. So even though some ILDA members are looking back to the "good ol' times", the new laser show market brings up new challenges: It's hard for an industry association to be loved by everyone, as all members are more or less competitors as well. But this is the nature of such an association, and the major challenge is to represent the general interest of the industry to governments and authorities in the countries of the members.
Patrick Murphy, the present ILDA Exectutive Director, does a pretty good job in gathering all the different input, so thanks for that as well.
The Laserworld Group is ILDA member with all their companies as brands, so associated are Laserworld (Switezrland) AG, Laserworld USA Inc., HB-Laser, tarm, SwissLas - and many more, see on http://www.laserworld-group.com
