Looking Forward, Looking Back: A New Concept for PLS 2016

a new concept
Those were some four days for exhibitors, visitors and organisers, at Prolight + Sound 2015 and the Musikmesse music fair alike. “More than 108,000 visitors from 146 countries were presented with a firework of new products, shows and stars by 2,257 exhibitors,” said Messe Frankfurt managing director Detlef Braun. “The Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound have reaffirmed their roles as a leading destination for the musical technology and events branches, and a hub for successful networking.” Like technology, however, the exhibition business never stands still: that means a new concept awaits visitors in 2016.

Next year, both the Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound will be even more carefully tailored to the needs of the musical instrument and entertainment industries. “The new concept is equally focused on building relationships between industry and retailers, and developing innovative new ways to connect manufactures and consumers,” Braun said.
