The Get Show
THE GET SHOW
GUANGZHOU / 8-11 MAY
The Guangzhou Pazhou Poly World Trade Centre recently hosted the 18th edition of The GET Show, one of the largest entertainment technology shows in Asia. This year, The GET Show boasted over 1,000 exhibitors spread across nine halls, covering 100,000 sq metres. The layout of the exhibition followed a similar formula to previous years with three halls dedicated to audio, along with a large outdoor space for demo’ing the impressive range of line arrays. The remaining six halls were dominated by
lighting exhibitors. It was noticeable that the areas outside the halls had also been utilised well, accommodating small shell scheme booths, presumably due to the increase in exhibitors. Among the extensive amount of stands were many clients and friends of mondo*dr including Adamson, Sennheiser, Pioneer, MADRIX, Wireless Solution, MEGA Systems, PR Lighting, FINE ART, Global Truss, The One Studio, Laserworld, GTD, TECHTEAM and LAMP. A great excuse to catch up and learn about new and exciting products and projects.
PR Lighting was difficult to miss with its impressive booth and it had taken a fresh approach - in comparison to previous years - to its vast, 558 sq metre booth design. On display was the 580 Series, which debuted at Frankfurt’s Prolight+Sound, earlier this year. This included two waterproof units - the AQUA 580 BWS and the AQUA 580 Beam - as well as two indoor units, the XR 580 BWS and the XR 580 BEAM. Away from the bright lights in those halls, I was able to catch up with CEO of PK Sound, Jeremy Bridge. He said: “China is a key market for PK
and The GET Show is the most prominent local show focussed specifically on this market. This was our first show to cement our presence in the APAC region, which is a major focus area in our growth plans. Our plan was to meet a number of new partners and work on potential business opportunities.” It was also brought to my attention that The GET Show is the first in China to initiate a noise-free exhibition, in a bid to provide a more comfortable environment for those wanting to talk business. It’s great to see this philosophy being put in to action, a welcome introduction for anyone who has visited
shows in Asia in the past, and has been subjected to ‘Hotel California’ on repeat at full volume for many years! With approximately 100,000 local and overseas visitors, it’s fair to say that the ‘City of Flowers’ is blossoming in to Asia’s largest technology show. The GET Show will return to the same location nect year, but will run earlier in the year. Dates have been announced as 16-19 February 2020. For more information, go to: www.getshow.com.cn
