D.A.S. Audio, founded in 1971 by the young industrial engineer Juan Alberola, has become a world leader in the sound reinforcement industry with its wide range of products. To commemorate the company's 40 year history and share this great milestone with its employees, clients and friends from around the world, D.A.S. Audio recently held a celebration in Frankfurt, Germany.
Coinciding with the recent edition of the Prolight & Sound fair, a private party attended by distributors, clients and collaborators from all over the globe was held at Frankfurt's Union Halle. A large group of representatives from Spain were in attendance, as well as representatives from D.A.S. Audio of America Inc. and D.A.S. Audio Asia PTE. LTD.
Cocktails were served to approximately 500 guests while they were treated to the unforgettable sound of Spanish guitars. D.A.S. Audio turned up the volume with the next act, where guests had the privilege of enjoying an impressive concert by iconic heavy metal group MANOWAR. The band, led by Joey DeMaio, made sure their audience appreciated the awesome sound quality of the D.A.S. systems.
Shortly after the Frankfurt celebration D.A.S. Audio held another event at their headquarters outside Valencia (Spain). The company opened its doors for the day, giving employees and their families a chance to take a tour of the facilities and learn about the different design and manufacture processes of its products. The event was rounded off with a show for children, an act that delighted the kids in attendance.
The climax to the visit to the D.A.S. Audio facilities was once again provided by the tireless MANOWAR, who treated employees and visitors to a private concert. Some 400 people filled the D.A.S. auditorium and had the unique opportunity to enjoy an exclusive, world class concert for the "D.A.S. Family", joined by representatives of the subsidiaries based in Miami and Singapore, who were accompanied by a select group of guests from both cities.
The celebrations were topped off with a cocktail-dinner at the Alameda Palace in Valencia, which included the presentation of a commemorative plaque to the founder of D.A.S. Audio, Mr. Juan Alberola, in recognition of his arduous and extensive work. In addition, a contribution was made to one of the city's charities, presented by the company's Deputy Chairwoman, Mrs. Palmira Calabuig, renowned for her humanitarian work.
D.A.S. put the finishing touches on the event with the well-known Valencian group, Seguridad Social, who performed their biggest hits for the guests, who enjoyed perfect sound thanks to their D.A.S. systems. All in all, an exciting celebration of a great milestone, made even more impressive considering the economic climate. The words on everyone's lips: "Let's go for our 50th, it's just around the corner ..."
