“Live for the Music” is the theme of Musikmesse 2009, which takes place in Frankfurt, Germany from April 1 to 4, 2009. As in past years, Musikmesse will be held in conjunction with the Pro Light + Sound convention, and admission to either show allows visitors access to both expos. And with a stronger dollar—currently hovering around $1.30/Euro—the favorable exchange rate (about 20 percent less than a year ago) makes attending this European convention more affordable.
With more than 2,000 exhibitors in 12 halls within the Frankfurt Messe complex, the combined event is the world's leading trade fair for music, pro audio, lighting and DJ technologies. Also not to be missed is an extensive program of workshops, concerts, demonstrations and discussion events.
Admission to Musikmesse/Pro Light + Sound is restricted to the professional trade from April 1 to 3, with the general public admitted on April 4 only. Tickets are available on-site, but for those seeking to avoid the box office lines at the fair, advance tickets at a discounted price can be purchased online from Messe Frankfurt's Online Ticketing page.
