“Guangzhou is a base for many lighting and audio brands. As a leading trade fair in the industry, PLSG attracts a diverse customer base thanks to its geographical advantage, reputation in the industry and trade fair scale. The show helps us quickly find new local and overseas clients to expand our business, particularly professional customers in the fields of stage art and engineering projects.”

“What impresses us the most about PLSG is the organisers’ determination to transform the exhibition. They have turned a simple commercial exhibition into an exhibition with its own unique ideas and characteristics, showcasing a variety of innovative concepts. Apart from being an exhibitor, this year our company was eager to set up more thought-provoking and in-depth projects in the fairground as a sponsor. We took the lead and became the organiser of the ‘Immersive entertainment space’, joining hands with a number of outstanding performing arts equipment companies and gathering advanced technologies and products. The combination allowed visitors to enjoy lighting, audio, video, and the most popular feature – live electronic music in an indoor bar. The information and trends showcased at PLSG reflect the organiser’s sensitivity to the market.”

“It’s gratifying to see so many top local lighting brands participating in the fair. Stage lighting is an important component of stage, film and TV. The lighting industry is definitely moving forward with cultural tourism in full swing and artificial intelligence becoming more advanced. It’s important that industry players also explore other markets. As part of this year’s fair, the China Illuminating Engineering Society: Stage, Film and TV Lighting Specialists Committee was pleased to organise a series of professional seminars, training courses and buyer delegations. This played an important role in spreading the latest insights about trends and developments.”
