Scheduled to run from 13-16 April 2021, Prolight + Sound at Messe Frankfurt is expanding the 'ProStage' area, which covers the entire theatre and stage technology sector, to become a focal topic of the event.

The 'ProStage' product segment includes products for stage productions. Those already declared their participation includes Alfa System, Artthea Bühnentechnik, ASM Steuerungstechnik, Bosch Rexroth, BEO Trekwerk, Bühnenbau Schnakenberg, Bütec, Chain Master, Chemtrol, Conductix-Wampfler, Decima, Fülling & Partner, Gala Stage Mechanical Systems, Gerriets, Gross Funk, Harlequin Deutschland, Maquinas Iberica, Movecat, SBS Dresden, ShowTex, Svetlost teatar, TAIT, Waagner-Biro, and Wahlberg.

In addition, there are numerous companies from the lighting and sound sector offering solutions for theatre productions, including Adam Hall, Audio-Technica, Ayrton, Chauvet, Clay Paky, Elation, FBT, Focon Showtechnic, GLP, JB-Lighting, Klotz, KS Beschallungstechnik, Link, LMP Lichttechnik, Microtech Gefell, Mipro, Peavey, Robe, SGM Deutschland, and many more.

Messe Frankfurt has developed a sophisticated protection and hygiene concept for a safe and smooth running of the fair on the exhibition grounds. This has been agreed with the responsible authorities and can be flexibly adapted to any changes. Cornerstones of the concept include: a spacious hall design with a minimum of five-metre wide aisles, compliance with distance rules, including appropriate partitions and floor markings, clearly regulated ticketing with full registration, and more intensive cleaning and provision of adequate disinfection facilities. In addition, the halls will be continuously supplied with fresh air during the event.

Prolight + Sound 2021 will be held entirely on the eastern section of the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. It presents products from the ProStage, ProAudio, ProLight, ProMedia and ProEvent segments in Halls 3.0, 3.1 and 4.0.

The foyer of Hall 4.1 is home to the associations of the live-entertainment sector and a job exchange, which brings together talents and companies. The large Agora outdoor area will set the stage for product demonstrations under open-air conditions.

Another new feature in 2021 is a Hosted Buyer Programme. Together with major exhibitors, Messe Frankfurt identifies top international buyers, particularly from the theatre and stage technology sector. These buyers receive complimentary flights and hotel accommodation as well as free admission to the event on all days of the fair. In this way, the organisers contribute to a further increase in visitor quality at Prolight + Sound - and thus also to stimulating business for a successful new start of the sector.
