February Event Recap


Today was a spectacular luncheon.  We learned how Ideum has become renowned for their exceptional interactive displays, with exhibits at museums around the country, including the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington DC, the Penguin Exhibit at our own ABQ Bio-Park Zoo, and the Cayton Children’s Museum in Santa Monica, CA.  Ideum has been a member of the Corrales business community for more than 20 years and have grown to employ more than 40 people. Please visit their website and be amazed at what this local company is accomplishing: www.ideum.com

We also learned about Lectrosonics, one of the hidden gems of Rio Rancho.  Lectrosonics designs and manufactures a large percentage of the sound systems used on news stations, reality TV, and many movies (ie Mad Max, Les Miserables, Pitch Perfect, Mission Impossible, just to name a few).  They won an Academy Award for Technical Achievement in 2017.  This is a company that is so well respected by others in the industry that it attracts like providers to our area.  Additionally, they have injected over $10M economic based dollars into our community over the past few years.  

It was an enjoyable, enlightening, entertaining event. Companies like these put our Metro Area on the map, and create the energy we need to draw development to our area, thus impacting the CRE arena in a most positive way!
