DSS 2020 - The Show
After graduating as an architect, Ben Phelps has worked in the AV industry for the last 13 years, initially for the international systems integrator TRISON and recently as retail industry director for Absen, one of the world’s premier LED display manufacturers. During his time working for TRISON, based in the north of Spain, Phelps was heavily involved in the rollout of LED displays for various international fashion brands, overseeing the successful implementation of thousands of LED displays in hundreds of locations worldwide, at a time when LED was uncommon in the retail environment. First as LED department manager, and latterly as smart retail manager, Phelps formed part of a team that took a small local integrator and established them as one of the market leaders on the European stage, working with some of the world’s biggest retail clients. After a sabbatical period in 2019, Phelps has returned to the industry in his role at Absen, guiding the company on its strategy within the retail industry, and helping Absen’s partners develop their LED display opportunities with major retailers.
