Prolight + Sound Guangzhou dates firmed

Christian Wissmuller • MMR Global • July 8, 2015

After months of negotiation, China’s leading pro audio and lighting show, Prolight + Sound Guangzhou, has confirmed its 2016 show dates.

Held from February 29th to March 3rd next year, the show will be even bigger and occupy the entirety of Area A in the China Import & Export Fair Complex, Guangzhou.

The show’s organisers explained how decisions were made in close cooperation with the industry.

“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,” said  Fiona Chiew, deputy general manager for Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai).

The key focuses of the 2016 show, according to organiser, are “internationality and comprehensive product variety”. Part of that is expanding Prolight + Sound Guangzhou by using all 13 halls and the entire outdoor space in Area A of the venue, plus more international pavilions.

“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,” Chiew added.

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 show has also partnered with famous industry associations worldwide such as the Professional Lighting & Sound Association of Germany (VPLT) to host educational forums and seminars. Further details will be announced soon.
