Yamaha and Nexo cancel Prolight + Sound 2020 attendance
Yamaha and Nexo have decided to not attend at Prolight + Sound 2020 on the show’s revised date because of the so-called ‘Coronavirus’, Covid-19.

Prolight + Sound 2020 was postponed until May due to the outbreak, however Yamaha and Nexo have decided not to attend despite the delay of the show. 

Nils-Peter Keller, senior director pro audio & AV group, Yamaha Music Europe and Jean Mullor, CEO, Nexo, said in a joint statement that: “Both Yamaha and NEXO fully understand the decision by Messe Frankfurt to postpone this year’s Prolight + Sound show. The spread of Covid-19 is a complex, challenging and evolving situation and our primary consideration is for the welfare of both show visitors and event staff.

“As two of the leading brands in the professional audio industry, many staff and customers of both companies will be gearing up for the busy outdoor festival season during the show’s revised dates at the end of May. Therefore, it is with regret that we have now decided not to exhibit at Prolight + Sound 2020.

“Both Yamaha and NEXO are naturally very disappointed that we will not be present at the show this year and we look forward to an opportunity to return in 2021.”

Other high profile audio brands have pulled out of the show, including Adam Hall, d&b Audiotechnik, ROE Visual and Adamson

Prolight + Sound is currently scheduled to run from 26-29 May 2020 at the Messe Frankfurt, Frankfurt, Germany.
