A reliable force in turbulent times: Prolight + Sound 2023 dedicated to stabilising the industry
The tasks have never been more demanding: a largely positive summer business for the event industry is countered by the massive effects of the energy crisis and the shortage of skilled workers – in addition, the aftermath of Covid is still present.

As the leading trade fair for the entertainment technology industry, Prolight + Sound (25 to 28 April 2023) is going full throttle to stimulate new growth. In doing so, the show focuses on optimal product experience, high-calibre training opportunities – and on proactively bringing companies together with the key target groups.
