Prolight + Sound has released its visitor and exhibitor figures for this years’ show: 940 exhibitors from 47 countries made presentations Messe Frankfurt between 5 to 8 April 2016, and around 45,000 visitors from 121 countries came for the première of the new event concept, setting new records for the trade show.
“This year’s Prolight + Sound demonstrated the creative and economic potential of event technology and was able to exploit the positive business climate in the sector in full. Thanks to the new concept, the fair has been able to increase its significance in many different respects,” says Detlef Braun, member of the board of management of Messe Frankfurt.
For the first time, Prolight + Sound was held on the eastern section of the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre. Moving to the eastern section of the exhibition centre gave several exhibitors the chance to increase the size of their exhibition stands in comparison to previous years.
“We were able to almost double the area occupied, a long-held wish that the new location made possible. Now, we have lots more space to receive our customers and were also able to redesign our stand. For us, the fair has been extremely good,” says Jochen Froh, director of business development at L-Acoustics.
The next Prolight + Sound will be held from 4 to 7 April 2017.
