This year's Prolight + Sound and Musikmesse "trade fair duo" saw 1,803 companies from 56 countries in attendance from 10-13 April.
The share of trade visitors to Frankfurt’s messe increased 10 per cent compared to 2017, with the event also seeing 7 per cent more international visitors compared to last year.
Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt claims that “the positive echo from the exhibitors of the two fairs" in addition to the healthy visitor numbers mean that the event is "on the right track".
"The sector honoured the focus on business during the working days," continued Braun. "Moreover, we sent out a positive signal for music and events with our multi-faceted music- education programme for young people and the successful Musikmesse Festival.
“We aim to build on the strengths of the trade-fair duo in the future, too. Accordingly, we are setting course for a Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound in 2019, which focus even more on the wishes of our customers for an international meeting place for the music and event- technology sector and exploit synergistic effects between the event to the utmost.”
