Musikmesse & Prolight + Sound to Boost Synergy for Visitors & Exhibitors in 2019

For the first time, the Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound trade shows will be held concurrently across their entire four-day runs from April 2-5, 2019, in Frankfurt, Germany. The shows allow visitors to discover the entire spectrum of products for the music and live entertainment sector.

The layout of Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound is designed for an optimal concentration of product groups and themes. Halls 3.0 and 3.1 spotlight keyboards, percussion, string and wind instruments, as well as sheet music and equipment. For the first time, all audio products will be concentrated in one area, Hall 8.0. Opened in September 2018, Hall 12 will house lighting, stage equipment, and entertainment technology. In Hall 4.0, companies from the sectors of light, media technology, and event safety will present their products and services in the centre of the exhibition visitor stream. Hall 4.1 will bring together associations of the music and event sector and is home to a joint business and networking area for both fairs. There, Prolight + Sound exhibitors will also have the opportunity to make presentations in the heart of the exhibition centre. Rounding off the hall layout is Forum.0 for full-range companies and the Congress Centre with the program for musical instruction.

Following its premiere in 2018, The Future of Music and Audio Technology seminars will be expanded and cover subjects that have a decisive impact on the global music industry, such as artificial intelligence, app integration, and wearables for musicians. The program is being organised by the Advanced Audio + Applications Exchange (A3E).
