1. In the past year, there has been a resurgence of events after two years of forced hiatus. How has your company perceived the past months?
On the whole, we are very satisfied with the last few months, especially with last year. There was a spirit of optimism that ran through the entire industry. From small event agencies to megastars, everyone wanted to get back on stage. We felt that too and it was the same for us. 2022 was our most successful year to date. We were able to acquire a lot of new clients. This enabled us to position ourselves even better on the German market.
2. What are your expectations for the industry in the coming years?
We can hardly wait to see what the year 2023 has to offer us in terms of business. We are positive about the coming years, but of course you have to wait and see what kind of traces the 2 years have left. We came through the pandemic well, but some of our colleagues were hit hard.
3. What is the significance of Prolight + Sound as an event technology fair for you?
Prolight + Sound is very important for us and for Germany. We have been represented by Chauvet for years and are always pleased to meet new and old acquaintances. Prolight + Sound is also very important on an international level. Once a year, the event world looks to Germany to see what's currently going on here.
4. How fast and efficient is it to programme shows with the MagicQ MQ500M Stadium console?
Through constant exchange with lighting operators and programmers, the ideas, approaches and wishes of our users flow into the software. In this way we create an environment and a workflow in which exactly that is the result. speed and efficiency.
A familiar way and yet many possibilities. Combined with compact dimensions and maximum performance, ChamSys users are free to concentrate on their show.
5. with a view to Prolight + Sound 2023: Can you give visitors a little taste of what to expect?
We will be introducing our new product range for 2023. For the first time, all the fixtures in the Maverick Storm family will be on show at once, as well as the new Rogue Outcast fixtures, which feature a new, lighter design and IP65 rating. We also have our new Ovation series in the lineup for the theatrical sector. In addition, there will be some novelties, which we do not reveal at this point yet. In any case, it will be worthwhile to stop by. We are happy about every visitor.
