Detlef Braun, member of the board of management of Messe Frankfurt, commented: “2,384 companies from 55 countries – that means two new records for both fairs. Never before have there been such potent events for the sectors concerned. We are very pleased with this response and the confidence placed by the sectors in Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound.”
Prolight + Sound’s exhibitor total of 873 represents a 6% increase on last year, with Germany heading the top exhibitor nation roll-call, followed by China, the USA, Britain, Taiwan, Italy, Spain, France, South Korea, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Belgium.
“Musikmesse and Prolight + Sound are once again in the process of demonstrating their unparalleled power of attraction for both the domestic and international music and entertainment markets,” said Braun.
