Andreas: Relax and enjoy this magic moment along with friends and family








  1. The wedding industry gravely suffered due to the pandemic. Do you think that new wedding trends will emerge through that predicament?

Andreas: I believe that micro weddings will be popular for sure this year. Sequel weddings will also become popular for couples that are opting to celebrate with an extended guest list. A small wedding this year and a big party on a future date. Finally domestic destinations would probably be on the rise, as couples looking to reassure guests safety and make travel easier for everyone. Of course we have to wait in order to see how many of these trends will hold in the long term.


  1. Would you describe yourself as an optimist? How do you stay motivated, driven and positive about the future?

Andreas: I would say that I am trying to be realistic with a sense of optimism 🙂 I am trying to take advantage of the free time we have now to explore new ideas in terms of sound & lighting design.


  1. You always come up with fresh and creative ideas, where do you get your inspiration from and what drives you to push the boundaries?

Andreas: Everything we see and hear can become an inspiration if you have vivid fantasy. The aim to create something new and unique each time is a powerful driving force.


  1. You started as a DJ. Do you still enjoy playing music for crowds? What made you expand your business and get into event production?

Andreas: As mentioned above the energy you get from the crowd on the dance floor is an amazing feeling. No matter how many years I am Djing every time is magic. As a Dj I know very well that a unique sound and lighting experience is very important to boost the party. I felt that there is a gap in the market, therefore we invested heavily in technical knowledge and equipment to deliver events that create emotional memories.
