XL Video Wins Prestigious Parnelli Award

1 December 2009

In front of a capacity crowd at the sold-out 2009 Parnelli Awards in Orlando, Florida, USA, XL Video was announced as the winner of the Video Rental Company of the Year Award.

René de Keyzer, CEO of the XL Video Group and Phil Mercer, Managing Director of XL Video LA, accepted the prestigious award. Also on hand to celebrate was XL Video's President Marcel de Keyzer and Jo Beirne of XL Video UK.

Since 2001, the Parnelli Awards, presented by Projection, Lights & Staging News (PLSN) and Front of House (FOH) magazines has honoured the highest achievers and most admired innovators in the live event industry. The awards, named after the late production and touring manager Rick "Parnelli" O'Brien, recognise pioneering, influential professionals and their contributions to the industry, honouring both individuals and companies.

Subscribers to PLSN and FOH magazines vote for the nominations and the winners, so the Parnelli's are truly a recognition by industry peers. 

XL Video, kicked off the year off in February by being voted the Favourite Video Services Company at the 2009 TPi Awards. A busy touring year has followed, working with - among others - Coldplay, Depeche Mode, Jay-Z; Johnny Hallyday, Pink, Staind, Take That and U2.
