The international trade fair Prolight + Sound enters its 25th year in 2020. Since 1995, changing exhibitors have been presenting their latest product innovations in the fields of entertainment, audiovisual system integration and content creation.
Some of these exhibitors have been present at the fair from day one. This includes audio producer KS Audio. Among other things, the internationally active company manufactures loudspeaker systems for large events. Also in the anniversary year, Managing Director Dieter Klein aims to look after a stand at Prolight + Sound.

KS Audio was founded in 1979 as KS Beschallungstechnik GmbH by Dieter Klein, today’s managing director, and renamed a few years later. The company is headquartered in Germany and now has subsidiaries in eleven countries worldwide.
KS Audio develops and distributes audio technology for theatres, live events and open-air events. The company was responsible for the planning and implementation of audio systems for the Reichstag building in Berlin, the Alte Oper Frankfurt and the Kammerspiele in Munich. Since 1983, KS Audio has participated in the Frankfurt Musikmesse, which later became Prolight + Sound, and has been represented there every year ever since. The company also provides some surprises at the fair: KS Audio invited visitors to Prolight + Audio 2017 to visit its newly opened test centre at the Hettenleidelheim production site and provided them with a free shuttle bus.
