Clearwing, Stage Equipment and Lighting along with Blue Planet have agreed

also the spread of disciplines we’re engaging with.” Comments Tim Riley, Head of
U.S. Sales. “Green Hippo products have always enjoyed a diverse array of users
from Broadway to Live Touring and our recent flourish of partners and distributors
demonstrate this strongly. Add in the amount of growth in our Visitor Attraction
projects and we really have hit the ground running this year.”
