Prolight + Sound, Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texprocess postponed until 2022; International Consumer Goods Show cancelled
Back in September 2020, a decision was reached by Messe Frankfurt and the industries involved to forgo any physical events at our home base in the first quarter of 2021. Now, following close consultation with customers, it has become necessary to postpone the international physical trade fairs planned for April and May – Prolight + Sound, the International Consumer Goods Show, Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texprocess – as a result of the regulations and travel restrictions that have been imposed.
Prolight + Sound 2021 with new digital services: Innovative Experience Platform and extensive live streaming programme
From 13 to 16 April, Prolight + Sound 2021 combines the advantages of a physical trade fair platform with the flexibility of digital events. In addition to product presentations and conferences on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds, the event offers a wide range of additional digital services. Thus, exhibitors will be given the opportunity to present their products and solutions to a greater audience and to make contact with professionals from all over the world. Under the name "Prolight + Sound 2021 Hybrid Edition", the event is being expanded by an app-based Experience Platform that offers innovative tools such as AI-supported matchmaking, virtual round tables and customisable company profiles. Users can experience the highlights of the leading trade fair from anywhere on several live streams.
Prolight + Sound sets stage and theatre technology as a focal point for 2021
Opposing the crisis with full commitment: from 13 to 16 April 2021, for the first time since the lockdown, Prolight + Sound provides an opportunity for product presentation and personal encounters in the entertainment technology industry. Following positive developments in recent years, Messe Frankfurt is expanding the "ProStage" product segment, which covers the entire theatre and stage technology sector, to become a focal topic of the event. This will give it a particularly high priority in exhibitor and visitor acquisition and in the fair's seminar programme.
