ORLANDO, Fla. (August 5, 2023) — LOOLA, Inc. is excited to announce that we will be exhibiting at the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show this year! It’s the perfect chance to learn more about the industry, meet new people, check out the latest trends, and get inspired by all the exciting new products and ideas in the hospitality industry.

If you’re in the #restaurant, #catering, #venue, #design, #hotel, #meeting planning, or #event planning industry, you want to take advantage of this great show. This unique show offers a range of educational opportunities for personnel within the industry with leading vendors, education, and
purveyors all in one place.

Teresa Guastella, the CEO of LOOLA shares that they will be at Booth 326. “Please stop by to see our latest iteration of re-brandable Solar Light Cubes. The customizable, foldable, waterproof lights are a gold standard for events, restaurants, hotels, #sponsorship ideas, branding, and more. Stop over and take look for yourself and grab some of our unique giveaways!” The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show will be held at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, on November 8th and 9th.

Loola started as a way to provide decorative lighting in outdoor events during the Covid-19 pandemic. Today, Loola offers two unique brand lines: the signature LOOLA Lights brand, which focuses on events, branding, rentals, home decor, outdoor living and hospitality businesses; and Totik, aimed at emergency preparedness, disaster recovery and harsh environments.

In both cases, the lights offered by LOOLA are great for indoor and outdoor alike but have the function and customizable aesthetics along with accessories, along with hours of light on a single charge.

Currently, the portable solar lights can be found online at loolalights.com, totiksurvival.com and at several independent retailers.
