Prolight + Sound 2022 Emotional encounters and a great spirit of optimism
The future of the event and entertainment sector has begun! This was the unmistakable signal transmitted by Prolight + Sound 2022 after bathing the halls of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre in a sea of light, eﬀects, sounds and inspiration from 26. to 29. April. Around 20,000 visitors from 93 countries took part in this tremendous reunion of the event industry, discovered the latest technological trends and gathered valuable insights for successful business within the framework of the #Restart.
After a break of two years, Prolight + Sound succeeded in bringing together companies and professionals from all segments of the industry at an international event. At the same time, the show represented the kick‐oﬀ of the 2022 Frankfurt trade‐fair season. “By all pulling together, we have achieved something that, at the beginning of the year, many people thought would be impossible: the companies and associations of the event and media technology sector joined forces with us to show once again how much life and positive energy is to be found in this industry. We all can be proud of this result.
Prolight + Sound not only launched a vast range of new and impressive technologies onto the market but also generated decisive impulses for ways in which the sector can equip itself to face the challenges of the present and future”, said Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Oﬃcer of Messe Frankfurt.
Despite the significant challenges still facing the event industry, skilled personnel from the sector have a highly positive outlook. According to a poll of visitors, around two thirds said they expected the economic situation in
the industry to improve in the future – a positive sign for the next Prolight + Sound, which will be held from 25. to 28. April 2023.
