Diverse fringe programme maximises show experience
The incredible lineup of fringe events provided opportunities for information exchange, networking, learning and business development, including the PLSG Annual Training Course, PLS Unicorn Series, the Recording and Production Zone, and other forums and seminars headed by industry associations.

Among the wide range of events, the uniquely situated Recording and Production Zone was particularly successful. It brought together Midifan, the leading industry media, and top-tier exhibitors within the personal recording market. Visitors and buyers not only had the opportunity to make purchase directly from suppliers, but also to seek professional advice.
Positive response from participants
“We really appreciate the uniquely situated Recording and Production Zone, because it’s specifically designed for suppliers like us. This zone converges professional recording and production companies, which attracts our target customers. Not only does it draw a large amount of visitor traffic, but visitors also spend a considerable amount of time exploring exhibitors at the zone. As a marketing platform, the show’s cost-effectiveness is impressive. We have the opportunity to showcase our product quality and technical features here, contributing to the industry’s development.”
Mr Hao Liu, Technical Manager, Synthax China

“I represent a retailer of sound equipment from South Africa, primarily dealing in our own brand of products that we source and import through OEMs in China. My experience at the fair has been great. With China’s borders now open, it is an excellent opportunity for us to stay informed about the latest trends and products. Numerous technological changes have occurred in the past few years, and a lot of new designs are now on display.”
Mr Sean Stacey, CEO, Fastrak Trading

“The show’s theme, ‘Tech meets culture’, is highly significant to us. During stage art production, we encounter various challenges concerning technology, equipment, and innovative technical presentations. While the show is dedicated to showcasing cutting-edge technologies and products, the organisers work so hard to pursue artistic expression through technology. As a result, the show has consistently been one of the world’s leaders in presenting technological innovation and nurturing the stage art industry. Our aims closely align with one another.”
