Pictures say more than words – Discover Prolight + Sound
‘This was the first time that we have been at Prolight+Sound and the investment has paid off - We have gained high-quality leads. The international nature of the event is immediately noticeable – thus we had visitors at our stand, among other places, from Asia and eastern Europe, and from the countries bordering Germany.’
‘For us Prolight+Sound is the most important show for meeting our existing customers, and also for gaining new ones. An especially important aspect for us is the opportunity to take part in the complementary programme. Formats such as the Manufacturers’ Forum or the new Immersive Technology Forum are a major sales channel for us.’
‘Prolight+Sound ranks very high internationally, and we are glad to have such a fair in Germany. This year, too, we saw a high quality of visitors and have made valuable new contacts.’
‘Prolight & Sound 2018 was a good show for L-Acoustics. We saw nearly all of our world-wide partners and numerous potential clients on our booth. The overwhelmingly positive demand for our L-ISA Immersive Sound Art demonstrations as well as presentations of our product updates resulted in people queueing to enter our demo room.’
‘We are very pleased with the results of our presentation at Prolight & Sound 2018. The fair gave us an outstanding platform to show our broad spectrum of laser projectors and large format displays. Also the organisers were highly professional and, given the large proportion of international guests, they had certainly not promised us too much.’
