Harman Pro recently celebrated the grand opening of a 15,000-square-foot, multi-functional facility Harman Experience Center in Los Angeles CA. The facility joins a worldwide network of Solutions Experience Centers in Singapore, China and, soon, in London.
“With the opening of our flagship Experience Center, we are bringing the Harman Professional Solution proposition to life while giving visitors a glimpse into the investments we’re making in our brands,” Bryan Bradley, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Americas, Harman Pro, said.
The Experience Center is comprised of several dedicated spaces. The entrance corridor features lighting effects and audio synced to, and anchored by, an 18′x’10′ Samsung LED videowall. The corridor is adorned with Technical GRAMMY Awards presented to JBL Professional (2005), AKG Acoustics (2010) and Lexicon Pro (2014) for contributions of technical significance in recorded field.
The Product Showroom is filled with Harman solutions, including Harman’s Connected Retail Experience, Connected Huddle Space, Voice Enabled Cognitive Hotel Room, Home Recording and Networked AVoIP.
The 6,000-square-foot Soundstage delivers live entertainment AVL demonstrations for House of Worship, Nightclub, Performing Arts and Touring.
The Café, Boardroom and Training Center are not only practical-use spaces, but also areas that demonstrate relevant solutions in restaurant, corporate and education settings.
“With the Experience Center, we can now take conversations with our customers off tradeshow floors and into our facility to give customers and influencers a deeper and more meaningful experience all day, any day of the year,” Erik Tarkiainen, Vice President of Global Marketing, Harman Pro, said.
The Experience Center is open by appointment only to Harman and Samsung customers, employees, distributors, sales representatives, dealers, artists and other industry professionals for meetings, performances, productions and hospitality events.
