We are pleased to have represented the UK at the 2018 Liuyang International Fireworks Exhibition in China – home town of fireworks.
In October 2018, MLE Pyrotechnics became the first company from the UK to design and fire a display in Liuyang, China.
The display, designed by company director – Mat Lawrence. Was fired from 21 firing positions spread over half a kilometre and contained over 4000 ignitions.
Four pyrotechnicians from MLE were sent to China to oversee the rigging of the display which included 360 degree wheels elevated into the sky to heights of over 30 meters.
The event included an opening display by Fireshow of China. Alongside MLE, 3 other companies from Italy, Sweden and Portugal competed for the top prize and we were treated to a closing display by Chinese company, Intently fireworks.
Each team were asked to provide a 10 minute pyromusical display in front of a panel of judges who awarded points to each team based on specific judging criteria.
MLE Pyrotechnics went on to be awarded 3rd place and would like to congratulate Parente Fireworks of Italy and Goteborg fireworks of Sweden for taking 1st and 2nd place respectively.
