After months of negotiation, China’s leading pro audio and lighting show, Prolight + Sound Guangzhou, has confirmed its 2016 show dates.
Being held from 29th February to 3rd March next year, the show will be even bigger and occupy the entirety of Area A in the China Import & Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou.
Fiona Chiew, deputy general manager for Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd., explained: "We talked to many exhibitors and visitors from the last show and received different opinions about the show dates, and we are highly committed to providing the best solution for everyone. Combining the comments and possibilities, we are happy to announce the new 2016 show dates and it will be held during the peak sourcing season of the industry."
To fortify its position as China’s largest marketing platform for the pro audio and lighting industry, the key focuses of the 2016 show are internationality and comprehensive product variety. The first step is to expand Prolight + Sound Guangzhou by using all 13 halls and the entire outdoor space in Area A of the venue, plus a new component that will be introduced for the show.
Chiew reveals: “As we always emphasise, we aim not just to grow big but strong. So the second piece of good news for the 2016 show is, we will have the debut of international pavilions from Italy, Korea and Taiwan. This is a successful result of resources integration between Messe Frankfurt and our local partner the Guangdong International Science and Technology Exhibition Company."
In addition to the newly added international pavilions, the halls will be categorised into audio brand name halls, pro audio halls, lighting halls, KTV hall and Enping microphone halls.
The organisers have also partnered with industry associations worldwide such as the Professional Lighting & Sound Association of Germany (VPLT) to host educational forums and seminars that bring first-hand market insights to the industry.
