“For me, the club industry was very
much about what was going on locally, in New York. I found out from
ClubWorld that there are people all over the world putting
together really quality venues. Plus, it keeps me in-the-know: I
can check out the newest way to set up a sound system, what other
people are doing in terms of lighting, what other clubs look like.
ClubWorld brings everything together, and gives the
business legitimacy. I read it every month, right when I get it.
I love it.”
— Benny Soto, promoter, 718 Sessions, New York
“I very much look forward to receiving ClubWorld
every month. Not only does it feature lots of new products for our
industry, it also keeps me up to date on what my colleagues are
doing. It’s an invaluable
resource for my company.”
— Stephen Lieberman, president, SJ Lighting, Los Angeles
“I have been in the SLV contracting business for over
26 years and have never seen or read anything so focused on our
industry as ClubWorld. Over the years there have been
many attempts from other publications, but nothing comes close.
Each month all of our installers
and designers are required to read it.”
— Karl Kieslich, president, Sound Stage Systems, Hamden,
