From April 10-13, 2018, Prolight + Sound will offer an extensive program of lectures covering all facets of the event industry. Aimed at both newcomers to the sector and experts, the lectures will be held in the Forum building of the Exhibition Centre in Franfurt, Germany.

As in previous years, the program is split into three parts: the Prolight + Sound Conference; the Manufacturers’ Forum; and the Eventplaza Conference. Numerous lectures will be given in English and are aimed at an international audience.

In the more than 30 seminars of the Prolight + Sound Conference, which are split into basic and advanced streams, participants can learn about subjects such as technology, training, law, business and aesthetics in the event technology sector.  Among the subjects covered in the advanced conference block will be truss and rigging, and standards compliance. The lectures in the basic conference block include basics of lighting technology and media servers and video mapping.

Launched successfully in 2016, the Manufacturers’ Forum gives companies the chance to pass on their expertise to event technicians, service providers, and other players from the event industry. Advanced technologies are presented by reference to specific projects and best-practice examples.
