As we celebrate the fair’s 15th anniversary this edition, we are particularly grateful for the enthusiastic support from our new and returning exhibitors. This not only underscores the importance of Prolight + Sound Guangzhou as a premium business platform, but also reflects how the industry resonates with our mission to transform and evolve with market demands. I am confident that the show will continue to serve as an international marketplace that pioneers the pro audio and lighting community in China.”

International key brands eager to explore market potentials in China

The pro audio and lighting sectors in China continue to represent a very lucrative market for many leading international companies that will take centre stage at Prolight + Sound Guangzhou 2017. Among these exhibitors, many regard the show as a gateway to increase their penetration and business leads.

First-time Chinese exhibitor Hangzhou Chuangda Stage Facilities Co Ltd is a local agency of the brand RCF and will launch its special fixed installation products at the fair. Mr Chao Jiang, General Manager of the company remarked, “In recent years, Prolight + Sound Guangzhou has begun to make steady improvement in quality and attendance and has become one of the leading fairs in the industry. We believe this show will become an indispensable channel for us to increase brand exposure, promote our latest advancements and meet our clients directly in China.”

Laserworld, a Swiss exhibitor for high-end laser equipment that is also eyeing the burgeoning Chinese market has decided to return for the fifth time. Mr Benedikt Orthen, Director of Events of the company acknowledged the show’s importance in stimulating its business in China. “With an increasing demand for project businesses in China and Asia, the need for high-quality laser systems with better specifications and graphics is also growing. There is a huge flow of Chinese audience at the show and this is the main reason we are back every year.”

New “Theatre K. Pub” addresses surging demands in karaoke and theatre markets in China

The Chinese entertainment sector has entered a revolutionary era as more customers are increasingly interested in mini home theatres, as well as karaoke and audiovisual integration systems. In response to the explosive market growth, the brand new “Theatre K. Pub” will debut this year, featuring high-quality karaoke systems, mini home theatres, customised installations, smart digital AV and system integrations in unique showrooms located at Y Channel of Area A. Companies including AMOI, Beidousat, Gaoyuanshen, LeChi, Magimore, MUNIU Tengsheng, Vidon and Zetian have already confirmed their participation and are set to unlock the potentials offered by the entertainment market.

On behalf of the organiser, Ms Cheung expounded on the new possibilities offered by this zone. “This area will not only help exhibitors and visitors capitalise on the abundant opportunities available in the booming karaoke and theatre markets, but also expand the influence of Prolight + Sound Guangzhou in these new sectors of the industry.”

Apart from the aforementioned featured area, Prolight + Sound Guangzhou will continue to deliver an all-around platform with the Audio Brand Name Halls, Pro Audio Halls, Lighting Halls, KTV Hall, Enping Microphone Hall, as well as product zones for microphones, conference systems, PA systems, as well as parts and accessories.
