Future Talents Day | 22. March 2024

Future Talents Day

The future belongs to the Future Talents - because without you, nothing works in the event industry!

The VPLT (Der Verband für Medien- und Veranstaltungstechnik), EVVC (Europäischer Verband der Veranstaltungs-Centren e.V.) and BDKV (Bundesverband der Konzert- und Veranstaltungswirtschaft) are organising the Future Talents Day at Prolight + Sound. On 22 March 2024, the Friday of the trade fair, the focus will be on the future talents of the event industry. Pupils, trainees, students and interns are cordially invited to be inspired by the diversity of the event industry, gain experience from other future talents and professionals and try their hand at event technology. How do insiders rate the industry and their work? What is behind a live event?  You will find answers to these questions during the Future Talents Day.

Primarily for students, trainees and interns: Come along to the Future Talk panel - find out how Future Talents and professionals from the fields of technology, organisation, culture and congress look at their career ideas and expectations.

Primarily for school students

Try out your own technical skills in small groups of 6 people in short 30-minute workshops on lighting, sound, video and rigging in the hands-on event technology session.
