Last year, Prolight + Sound moved to Halls 12 and 8 to some extent. In 2020, the Global Entertainment Technology Show will also take place in Halls 9 and 11.
Entertainment, Stage and Light in Halls 12 and 8
The new Hall 12, Messe Frankfurt’s largest and most modern building, celebrated a successful debut at Prolight + Sound and will once again provide a first-class setting for product presentations in 2020. With 33,600 square metres of gross exhibition space and a ceiling height of 10 metres, exhibitors from the light, stage and entertainment sectors will be able to present themselves in a variety of ways. Thanks to the “Via Mobile” path system, it is also directly connected to Audio Hall 8.0.
With around 30,000 square metres, Hall 8.0 has the largest ground-level hall area on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. This is where the audio technology will be presented under one roof in 2020 – this time only for Prolight + Sound exhibitors. Visitors can look forward to the presentation of PA and sound reinforcement technology, professional recording equipment and signal processors. Other technology such as intercom and broadcast systems as well as microphones, cables & headphones and digital audio networking will also be on display. Room acoustics & acoustic measuring tools complete the wide range.
Start-up Area in Hall 11 – Demo Rooms and Conferences in Hall 9
New this year is the use of Halls 9 and 11, which are also directly connected to Halls 8 and 12. While Hall 9 will be reserved for demo rooms, conferences and workshops at the next Prolight + Sound, Hall 11 will also feature exhibitors from the Light and Media Technology + Entertainment segments. Start-ups will also have their own area in Hall 11 this year.
The galleries between Halls 8 and 9 will accommodate the associations, the job exchange and everything to do with training and further education. The exhibitors will be accompanied here by music from hot Beatz. The DJ Convention, now an indispensable part of Prolight + Sound, will take place at Gallery 0.
Droning stocking on the outdoor arenas
Framed by all halls are the two Outdoor Arenas F10+F12 and F11+F12. Here loudspeakers and PA systems will be presented under real conditions. The Live Sound arenas can be found in front of Hall 12 and Hall 8. Audio manufacturers such as dbTechnologies Deutschland, KV2 Audio International, Harmonic Design Audiotechnik, RCF, Funktion One Research and Fohhn Audio will be presenting their line-ups every ten minutes. Drone basses and good sound accompany the trade fair visitors.
