Prolight + Sound has revealed its plans for the 2018 show, after MI fair Muskimesse announced it would merge with the pro audio show to put more focus on the audio sector by placing exhibitors more centrally.
The two fairs will be held in Frankfurt from April 10-14 2018. In 2017, the two events attracted a
total of around 100,000 visitors from 144 countries to Frankfurt’s Fair and Exhibition Centre.
Professionals from the field of light and sound technology can see new products in action at the PRG/LEA Stage in the ‘Festhalle’ and at the outdoor Live Sound Arena. The lectures at the Prolight + Sound Conference will provide answers to questions on miking, PA systems, lighting design, plus more.
Media technology and systems integration will have a bigger presence at this year's show. Technological trends, such as digital audio networks, AV over IP and immersive technologies, will be shown in exhibition halls and be discussed by experts in the seminar programme.
For the 15th year running, Prolight + Sound will be the venue for the presentation of the ‘Sinus – Systems Integration Award’.
An attractive area for interested users in broadcasting is the Moving Picture Pavilion in Hall 4.0, with products for live video production and streaming, as well as ready-to-play production chains from the camera to live distribution.
Products and seminars on the stage and theatre are summarised in a special brochure to help planners, technicians and other professionals from the theatre segment orientate themselves at the fair.
In keeping with tradition at Prolight + Sound, the Opus – German Stage Award – will be presented in honour of outstanding achievements in the field of stage and scenery design, as well as the use of technology on the stage.
In keeping with last year, Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound will be held concurrently on the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and all tickets are valid for both fairs on these days.
