Show Central: New Products & News From Prolight + Sound 2015

Welcome to ProSoundWeb’s coverage of the ongoing Prolight + Sound & Musikmesse 2015 in Frankfurt, which presents the latest products from the worlds of event technology and musical instruments.

Preliminary figures show a reported total of 2,257 exhibitors from 57 countries on hand this year, up from the 2,216 exhibitors reported in 2014.

While Musikmesse has remained stable in terms of exhibitor numbers despite a volatile market, Prolight + Sound, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, reflects the buoyant mood of its sector and has set a new exhibitor record, with 928 companies showing products and services.

“The ups and downs of companies in the musical-instrument sector represent a distinct contrast to the booming event-technology industry. We aim to take individual account of the opportunities and challenges of these sectors and develop the two events accordingly,” states Detlef Braun, a member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt.

The exhibitors include key players from the fields of sound and stage technology, audio-visual media technology, systems integration, and lighting. Prolight + Sound is also characterized by a high level of internationality: 61 percent of the exhibitors come from 41 foreign countries – after Germany, the most represented nations are China, Great Britain, the United States, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Spain and France.

We’ll be providing updates regularly here on the “show central” page, so be sure to check back often for the latest.
