Several months before the event, the available exhibition space and showrooms at the upcoming 27th Tonmeistertagung (tmt27) are already completely booked. The head office of the German Tonmeister Association (VDT) has underlined the considerable interest of the pro-audio industry following the move from Leipzig to Cologne. The tmt27 will take place at the Congress Centrum Nord of the Koelnmesse exhibition center in Cologne between 22-25 November, 2012. Due to excellent national and international transportation links, the VDT expects highest public interest and a considerable stream of visitors. The Tonmeistertagung has always enjoyed an excellent reputation for its program of presentations and events, and tmt27 will follow this tradition. The Congress Centrum Nord at Cologne will be the venue of a top-class convention featuring lectures, roundtables, poster sessions, seminars, workshops, and many other events, providing profound background information and practical inspiration. The workshops, in particular, will not only concentrate on practical applications but will be all about listening and viewing. Product-specific contributions will be integrated into the conference program according to their subject relation.
