Prolight + Sound & Musikmesse to Boost Synergy for Visitors & Exhibitors in 2019

For the first time, the Prolight + Sound and Musikmesse trade shows will be held concurrently across their entire four-day runs from April 2-5, 2019, in Frankfurt, Germany. The shows allow visitors to discover the entire spectrum of products for the music and live entertainment sector.

The layout of Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound is designed to achieve the optimal concentration of product groups and themes. For the first time, all audio products will be concentrated in one area, Hall 8.0. Opened in September 2018, Hall 12 will house lighting, stage equipment, and entertainment technology. In Hall 4.0, companies from the sectors of light, media technology, and event safety will present their products and services in the centre of the exhibition visitor stream. Hall 4.1 will bring together associations of the music and event sector and is home to a joint business and networking area for both fairs. There, Prolight + Sound exhibitors will also have the opportunity to make presentations in the heart of the exhibition centre.
There will be a new joint venue, Hall 4.1, for business and networking for both fairs that features an elaborate lounge with a lecture stage and catering zones designed to encourage business discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.

The Immersive Technology Forum is also being continued. Companies in the event and media-technology sector will provide insights into best practices relating to 3D and spatial audio, virtual and augmented reality, 360-degree projection, and holography.
