Green Event Day, 27. April 2022:


A central message of Prolight + Sound 2022: spectacular visitor experiences and ecological action go hand in hand more than ever. At the "Green Event Day" theme day, the focus is on the responsible use of natural resources. Companies and associations will present their green initiatives and sceneries for economically sustainable action on the "Main Stage" (Hall 11.0).

During Guided Tours, manufacturers will present energy-saving and ecologically beneficial solutions. In this way, you will receive valuable input from companies that want to renew their media technology equipment with a view to a more positive eco-balance.
