One of the highlights of both Prolight + Sound and the Musikmesse this year was the joint double awards ceremony on Thursday 16 April for the MIPA – Musikmesse International Press Award and the PIPA – Prolight + Sound International Press Award.
This is PLS: 300 Guests Celebrate Together
Prior to the big event, more than 100 international music magazines were called on to choose their favourites in 37 categories, which included musical instruments as well as audio equipment. More than 300 manufacturers’ representatives from 18 countries made the trip to Frankfurt. A good time was had by all as nominations were announced and the awards handed out, followed by good food, music, and conversation to see out a fantastic evening.
This was the 16th MIPA, and just the second PIPA. All the winners and nominees in the individual categories can be found on the MIPA homepage.
