By Julie Clark • March 18, 2014 The international Musikmesse and Prolight+Sound trade fairs last week in Frankfurt attracted about 110,000 visitors from 142 countries, according to figures released by Messe Frankfurt. It represents a slight decline in visitors compared to the record of more than 113,000 set last year. Altogether, 2,242 international exhibitors from 57 countries presented their products and services at the show “This year’s Musikmesse and Prolight+Sound were characterized by a high visitor standard and a willingness to place orders,” states Detlef Braun, a member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, noting that this compensated for the slight decline in visitor numbers compared to last year. The Prolight+Sound 2014 sector attracted a total of 897 exhibitors from 42 countries. According to a Messe Frankfurt statement, “The exhibitors gave the fair a positive rating in all respects with almost 80 percent saying they were satisfied to extremely satisfied with the course of business.” The show also underscored its status as international sources of impulses with a comprehensive spectrum of seminars, lectures and workshops. At the Musikbiz Lounge & Congress Area, participants could find out about music marketing, copyright law and publishing, and hold discussions. The Eventplaza Conference offered numerous information events on trends, strategies and expertise for the live-entertainment and theatre sectors with particular attention being paid to the subject of event safety. Additionally, speakers from the media-technology sector passed on their knowledge about sound and event technology at the Prolight+Sound Conference. Let’s take a look at the new products unveiled at the show. Check back oftan as this roster will be updated regularly.
