Record high visitor turnout at Prolight + Sound Guangzhou signals full recovery of global entertainment and pro AV industry

Dimming the lights on 25 May, the 2023 edition of Prolight + Sound Guangzhou (PLSG) has illuminated a strong outlook for the global entertainment and pro AV industry, with a significant 61% increase in visitors reaching 85,046 – a new high. The four-day show also featured over 50 fringe events and showcased 1,403 exhibitors across 130,000 square meters of exhibition space, representing a 35% growth from the previous edition.

At the fair’s conclusion, Mr Richard Li, Executive Director of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd, stated: “Given the recent positive outlook for the global entertainment and pro AV industry, and the opening of China’s borders in January this year, we are delighted that this year’s show has set a new record for visitor numbers. The enthusiastic response underlines Prolight + Sound Guangzhou’s status as an indispensable platform for both local and international industry players.”

“The show goes beyond just showcasing the latest advancements in entertainment and pro AV technologies to also highlight the vast potential applications of these solutions in a variety of industries: from entertainment, construction, and the commercial sector, to cultural tourism and personal use. This wide coverage is one of the key reasons for the fair’s growing popularity. The possibilities for leveraging lighting and sound solutions are endless. For instance, we strategically separated out the Recording and Production Zone this year to help industry players capitalise on the rapid growth of the personal recording market, and we are pleased that it was well-received by both exhibitors and visitors,” added Mr Li.

Mr Hongbo Jiang, Director of the Guangdong International Science and Technology Cooperation Centre, was also delighted with the outcome: “As the cultural and entertainment industries make a full recovery, markets such as concerts, stage performances and cultural tourism are all flourishing. As a result, the PLS Unicorn Series was once again a highly popular attraction at the fairground, illustrating its position as a pioneer for showcasing excellence in the industry. The immersive experiences created by the pro AV solutions, media art and stage installations captivated audiences and demonstrated new standards for what’s possible in the world of events and live performances. The show also boasted a diverse fringe programme and the highly-anticipated PLSG Annual Training Course. Participants and speakers alike praised the events for valuable information exchange, networking and training opportunities that enhanced the overall show experience.”
