The ILDA Board of Directors voted to recognize March 7 as “International Laserist Day”. Each year on that date, ILDA, Members and laserists are invited to produce shows, special events, open houses, press releases and other material to recognize the people and companies that create memorable laser light shows and effects.
March 7 was chosen to honor the birthday of Ivan Dryer, who founded Laserium and the modern laser light show business.
