When Applelec helped transform Leeds first direct arena’s VIP bar, we thought the result was so good, they deserved to have their name in lights too.
Applelec is one of only a handful of official UK suppliers of SloanLED products, which deliver outstanding brightness, longevity and energy savings when used in signage applications, lightboxes and built-up letters.
The company worked with corporate branding specialists Nebula Creative on the creation of two textile framed light boxes for the arena’s VIP area, called the Black & White Lounge.
Applelec supplied modules from the SloanLED PosterBOX 3 range to illuminate the 3ft high light boxes, which feature classic album covers from artists who have played at the arena since it opened.
