Initial programme plans for Prolight + Sound 2022

After a long lean spell in the event business, Prolight + Sound aims to make its contribution to an economic upswing in the industry. At the same time, the trade fair supports the sector’s commitment to a responsible use of natural resources and, in connection with this, is introducing a new on-side format for the 2022 event. Together with partners, director Mira Wölfel will explain the plans during a panel discussion.

Presentation and round table discussions on theatre-lighting trends

While the first signs of recovery in the crisis-torn theatre industry can be seen on the horizon, the pressure for modernisation continues to be a challenge for both private and public companies. Technical innovations have continuously driven up the expectations of visitors and professionals – and this is coupled with a growing awareness of the need for ecological compatibility. In a lecture, lighting specialist Herbert Bernstädt (Adam Hall Group) presents the latest trends and ideas in the theatre segment – which will be followed by a discussion with other experts from the business.
