Prolight + Sound Shanghai, Asia’s dynamic trade platform for professional audio, lighting, entertainment and event technology, has been awarded the prestigious title of “Shanghai International Brand Exhibition” by the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Industries Association.

The title was presented recently and only exhibitions that met specific requirements were eligible for an award. Requirements included compliance to the Procedures of Shanghai Municipality on the Administration of the Exhibition Industry; a high level of satisfaction from both exhibitors and visitors; and a high return rate of participating exhibitors.

Commenting on the award, Ms Fiona Chiew, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd said: “It’s an honour to receive this award. It proves that Prolight + Sound Shanghai has established itself as a leading international trade fair providing exhibitors and visitors with a professional trading platform.”

The next Prolight + Sound Shanghai, jointly organised by Messe Frankfurt and INTEX Shanghai Co Ltd, will be held 10 – 13 October 2013 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Shanghai, China.

Looking for business opportunities in the fast growing Asian market, exhibitors from Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Korea, Portugal, Russia, Taiwan, UK and the US have signed up to showcase a variety of audio, visual, lighting and stage equipment, and AV integrated products.

TW Audio from Germany, an exhibitor for five consecutive years, sees the show as a powerful business platform. Mr Bernhard Wüstner, Managing Director of the company said: “The show is one of the most important fairs on the Asian continent. We started our business in Asia at the show in 2009. Since then we have seen a constant growth and recognition of the TW Audio brand in China and Asia.” This year, TW Audio will present their new flagship sound system VERA36 made for large-scale events, at the show’s signature Concert Sound Arena, together with a powerful but compact T24 for mid-scale events.

Mr Jeff Cai, Special Assistant to Chairman and Account Director from Sunrise Exact Industrial Co, a connector parts processor from Taiwan commented: “Continuous exposure at Prolight + Sound Shanghai is essential for us, as we rely heavily on this show to meet with customers from southeast China and other parts of the world.” This year, Sunrise will demonstrate its Heavy Duty Category 6 Network Cable.

Another leading professional audio supplier Samson Technologies will be showcasing its top brands such as Samson, Hartke and Zoom. Electronics supplier AVSL Group will make its first appearance at the show with its brands Chord, Citronic and QTX featuring DJ equipment and stage light effects.

Apart from individual exhibitors, some suppliers from Taiwan will be grouped into a pavilion, hoping to take advantage of strong demand in the Asian market.

LamaVita, a LED stage lighting equipment supplier has joined the Taiwan pavilion and Ms Sylvia Li, Marketing Director of the company said: “Prolight + Sound Shanghai is an effective platform to acquire customers and look for strategic partners. This is why we are bringing a full range of our products to the show, including the Digital LED tube, BOBhaze, RDM LEDpar& Controller, and Moving Head & Bar.”

Mr Jim Liao, Sales Manager of quick release pin manufacturer Jin Kou Enterprise Co Ltd shared the same sentiment. He said: “Our main customers are those famous companies in the stereo industry worldwide. This Shanghai show gives us multiple business opportunities in this sector, so it’s important for us.”
