PLS and GETShow, China
Report from Prolight + Sound Guangzhou and GETShow 2017
Prolight + Sound Guangzhou is China’s largest show for professional audio and lighting and provides the largest sourcing platform for the companies in the industry. The fair is visited by approximately 60 000 visitors from China and rest of the world.
GETShow (or Guangzhou Entertainment Technology Show) has similar focus as the PLS Guangzhou and because the show dates were close to each other we decided to attend both shows and explore the possibilities.
It was for the first time we participated in two trade shows in one location. We were quite surprised to find out that the attendance of both shows was that high, with many visitors from all around the world.
It was also for the first time that we joined forces with Pangolin and we believe it has been very beneficial for us and also for the visitors. 3 units of Clubmax 3000 were used for the laser graphic display done by Pangolin. Visitors could try out the new AKAI controller and control the laser beams, colours and effects just with MIDI keyboard.
Building the booth in Guangzhou had to be super quick! We had only one and half days to prepare the booth for the show and that included the booth construction, rigging, cabling, testing and setting up the show. During the last day of PLS the construction team was already building the second booth at GETShow. Although it might seem bit hectic (and we admit it was), we were happy with the results in the end.
There were 16 lasers in the booth altogether. 12 of them were used for the beam show and included 6 x Clubmax 6000, 2 x Atom 12, 2 x Spectrum 25 and 2 x Spectrum 30. Another 3 units of Clubmax 3000 were used by our friends from Pangolin and one Atom 12 was used for the beam projection across the exhibition hall.
Next time you will be able to see us at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, Germany.
