Stage|Set|Scenery offers start-ups a platform

GermanyThey are young, creative and innovative. However, they often have no platform to present their ideas. That is where Stage|Set|Scenery with its special start-up programme comes in. At the international trade show and conference for theatre, film and event technology, which will take place from 18 to 20 June 2019 in Berlin, event industry start-ups can present their products to expert international audiences, establish important business contacts and secure new markets. They will benefit from attractive rates. At Stage|Set|Scenery 2019 companies which have been on the market for up to three years will pay a net flat rate of 1,250 euros. Services covered by this fee include a stand occupying 7.5 square metres, construction of the stand, furniture, carpeting, electricity, exhibitor IDs, AUMA fees and a media package.

Stage|Set|Scenery takes place every two years on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. Last year some promising start-ups were already in attendance. FRAMED immersive projects GmbH & Co. KG, for example, which gave a live presentation of the usomo sound installation at the SoundLab. The system creates a 3D listening experience and turns rooms into a walk-in, interactive sound landscape. “The audience members immersed themselves in the usomo sound landscape which they could individually explore by moving freely around the SoundLab,” said managing director Steffen Armbruster. “Stage|Set|Scenery was an excellent platform that let us showcase usomo at a professional, established fair, where we were able to establish new contacts from Germany and abroad. We met with an interested and enthusiastic audience, and after the presentation there was a fascinating exchange of views.”

Other exhibitors included the start-up Riverside Solutions which displayed its Misto APS software, a web-based scheduling and administration system for theatres which was designed in close collaboration with several Finnish theatres. Practical experts co-designed the software, whose special feature is its knowledge of theatre requirements and processes. Jarrko Loima from Misto APS says: “Our biggest advantage at the show was being able to meet end users from around Europe. Even though our software was 'made in the theatre' there are differences in the production of individual plays. Being able to talk to the right people at Stage|Set|Scenery greatly helped us to test new ideas. We were really inspired and came away with some good ideas on how to further develop our planning tool.”
