MGC Lighting Group sponsors reptile and amphibian workshops
October 31, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) MGC Lighting Group, a leading international lighting distributor, and an approved distributor of Arcadia lamps and accessories for reptile enclosures and aquariums, is the main sponsor of this year's Reptile and Amphibian Working Group (RAWG) Annual Conference.
The event, which is organised by the RAWG - a working group of the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA), is being held at the West Midlands Safari Park over three days from the 7th-9th November. The theme for this year's conference is 'Animal Training'. Day one will cover general RAWG business and amphibians, day two will concentrate on reptiles and the final day will look at training and enrichment.
MGC is fast developing a reputation as one of the UK's leading distributors of specialist lighting solutions for commercial reptile enclosures and aquariums; a fact underpinned by its status as an approved Arcadia distributor, which produces a wide range of high quality lighting products and accessories for reptile enclosures and aquariums.
In addition to a wide range of Arcadia products , which include basking lamps, UVB lighting, natural sun lamps, aquarium spotlights and LEDs, as well as lighting controllers for wet and dry vivariums, MGC also distributes the BLV Nepturion range of Metal Halide aquarium lamps and the Osram UltraVitalux UV lamp.
Commenting on the decision to support this year's event, David Jackson, International Sales Director at MGC Lighting Group, said: "We have worked hard to raise our profile in this sector over the past 12 months and have made great progress in that time. In addition to securing distributor status with Arcadia - one of the biggest names in the industry - we have worked with some of the UK's most highly respected zoos and aquariums, such as Colchester Zoo in Essex.
"Approved distributor status and sponsorship of key events such as the RAWG conference, underpins our reputation as a key player in the supply of specialist lighting products to the commercial reptile and amphibian sectors."
