Practical dialogue on the theatre, film and event technology – Successful conclusion to Stage|Set|Scenery

Germany At Stage|Set|Scenery, 6,000 international trade visitors gathered for an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge on practical topics ranging from lighting and audio technology, furnishings, costume-making, make-up, stage equipment to event services. The trade show for theatre, film and event technology took place from 18 to 20 June in Berlin and was co-organised by Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft (DTHG) and Messe Berlin.

Three hundred and eleven exhibitors presented their innovations, which were met with keen interest by visitors to the show: stage and event technology, lighting technology and illumination design, architecture and event planning in particular were topics that attracted a lot of attention. A comprehensive programme of conference events on six stages accompanied the show. The Immersive Showroom was a new feature at the event where the focus was on Experience Technologies, including 3D printing for costumes, AR and VR in the classical theatre and the use of digital technologies in museums.

The main motivation for trade visitors was to obtain information and hold meetings on specialist subjects. Around 50 per cent were visiting for the first time. Nine out of ten had a positive impression of the products and services and said they would be back for the next event. Exhibiting companies were also satisfied with the show. Approximately four out of five of exhibitors polled were very satisfied with the quality of visitors on their stand; they were particularly interested in the visitor categories ‘technical staff at event venues’, ‘event venue management’ and ‘architects/building planners’.
