Unfortunately, Prolight + Sound could not celebrate its anniversary with all our exhibitors and visitors in Frankfurt. However, to take up a little of the history of the trade fair, we have put together a special collection of Prolight + Sound key visuals from the last 25 years.
25 years of trends and innovations
For 25 years, Prolight + Sound has stood for trends and innovations in the entertainment technology industry. In the meantime, the trade fair has become an independent platform for the sector and is now held entirely on the western section of the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. The event, which began as a small special show at Musikmesse, focuses on professional exchange. Trade visitor services and an even more extensive range of conferences have developed continuously in recent years.
After 25 successful years on the market, Prolight + Sound has finally come of age. Our promise for 2020 is clear: we bring companies together with top decision-makers in the industry, increase visitor quality and continuously generate new, high-quality leads. The event sets a clear course for the future and creates new visitor incentives for buyers and planners.
Michael Biwer, Group Show Director of the ‘Entertainment, Media & Creative Industries’ division of Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.
Fair concept further developed
With the anniversary edition, Prolight + Sound has moved completely to the western section of the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre, with the new, modern Hall 12. This means that the event offers short distances and optimum presentation conditions. In addition to exhibiting products in the exhibition halls, companies have the opportunity to present their innovations and brands in demonstrations and workshops as part of the supporting programme. It is also possible to set up your own demo rooms for particularly elaborate product presentations.
In addition, Prolight + Sound positions itself more strongly as an international trade fair for technologies and services for events and entertainment. In recent years, this development has been driven forward more and more. The focus is on innovations for use at concerts and shows, theatre productions and open-air events, corporate events and conferences, as well as in film and sound studios, museums, worlds of experience and nightlife venues. The trade fair covers products for mobile use as well as for fixed installations.
Looking ahead: The Prolight + Sound 2021
After the anniversary edition of Prolight + Sound 2020 could not take place as planned due to the corona crisis, the focus turned to the future. Prolight + Sound 2021 will take place in Frankfurt again from 13 to 16 April. And numerous exhibitors have already announced their participation. All that remains to be said is this:
See you in 2021!
