Prolight + Sound 2023: Great anticipation for the leading trade fair of the entertainment technology sector
The industry is getting ready for four full days of business, networking and positive energy. At Prolight + Sound (25 to 28 April), visitors can discover all the latest trends and technologies for spectacular events. For the first time since 2019, the show will take place without major global travel restrictions. As a result, exhibitors from all over the world, including Asia, will once again be represented in large numbers. Prolight + Sound will thus be a global meeting place for companies, decision-makers, professionals – and for young talents on the threshold of a career in the event industry. The show offers a broad spectrum of products and themes, from lighting and lasers, via PA systems and studio technology, to projection and LED as well as event services. Particularly in the field of theatre and stage technology, the event has evolved into Europe’s largest meeting place.
Performance + Production Hub: Experience Zone all around creative sound tools with workshops and live acts
After a successful premiere last year, the Performance + Production Hub will enter a new round from 25 to 28 April 2023. The top attraction for DJs, producers and musicians will be expanded at Prolight + Sound 2023. In cooperation with the makers of the Sample Music Festival and well-known brands in the audio sector, an elaborately designed Experience Zone will be created in the Portalhaus. Visitors can try out creative sound tools, experience showcases by international artists and attend top-class workshops. The PRO MUSIK association is also on board as a new partner. This expands the Performance + Production Hub’s offerings to include topics such as acoustic music, band performances and the symbiosis of analogue and digital sound worlds.
Prolight + Sound 2023: EVVC Green Sessions set impulses for a greener event industry
Sustainable events need to become the standard: On this point there is a great deal of agreement among those responsible in the event industry. But how exactly is this goal to be achieved? What point is the industry at? What has already been successfully implemented, what less so? And how does the industry need to position itself in the future? These and other questions will be addressed and discussed by industry experts at the “Green Sessions” at Prolight + Sound from 25 to 28 April 2023. The programme is organised by the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC).
