Designing the future together in an all-new Cinionic World location
LAS VEGAS – August 17, 2021 – Cinionic, the Barco, CGS, and ALPD cinema joint venture, announces its full line-up for CinemaCon 2021 as an official show sponsor. This year, Cinionic celebrates its recently announced all-laser portfolio, cinema services, and innovative solutions with a new home for its annual exhibition, Cinionic World. The expanded Cinionic World debuts August 23-26 with live presentations of its leading laser cinema solutions in the Roman Ballrooms at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

With the move to all-laser, Cinionic reaffirms its long-standing commitment to exhibition today and tomorrow during CinemaCon. Now, Cinionic makes it easier for any theater – from boutique cinemas to premium screens – to offer audiences unparalleled entertainment experiences with laser solutions and enhanced services, including a Barco Series 4 for every screen, Laser Light Upgrades for Series 2 projectors, vendor-financing, and the ability to sign-up to new as-a-service models like Cinionic Giant Screen (CGS). 

“The return of CinemaCon this year not only allows the industry to reconnect, it also represents a moment to celebrate the power of the cinematic experience,” said Wim Buyens, CEO of Cinionic. “At CinemaCon 2014, we introduced the promise of laser-powered entertainment destinations. More than seven years later – and with more than 25,000 laser solutions deployed – we are returning with an all-laser portfolio and new paths to laser for every cinema. We look forward to working with the entire cinema community to power a bright future for moviegoing for years to come.”

Throughout the show, visitors to Cinionic World can explore future-ready solutions with daily presentations at the purpose-built Laser Theater and hands-on opportunities with award-winning technologies. Cinionic World 2021 aims to create a space to design the next generation of moviegoing together.
