From lifelines to liquid gas: live demonstrations on the Safety Action Stage
At this year's SHOWTECH, which will attract the entire stage and event technology industry to Berlin from 7th to 9th June, the programme will be more varied, up-to-date and international, ranging from restoration or new construction projects in China, Russia or Oman to themes related to energy efficiency and sustainability in stage technology through to safety on and behind the stage: SHOWTECH 2011 comes with new themes and formats.
For the first time, the accompanying DTHG conference will be replaced by an open forum, and the Technical Tours, the excursions to playhouses and venues in the German capital will be further expanded. And not only the programme, but also a look at the list of exhibitors proves that SHOWTECH as the world forum for the stage is the international market leader in stage technology. With SBS, Waagner Biro, Gerriets or ASM Steuerungstechnik, all the big names of the industry will be present in Berlin. Furthermore, exhibitors such as ETC, ARRI, Lightpower, Riedel, Martin Professional or Sennheiser will showcase the most important new products and developments in the fields of professional lighting, audio and media technology. More than 300 companies from 25 countries will present themselves at SHOWTECH.
Safety Action Stage: from lifelines to liquid gas
One focus of this year's SHOWTECH will be the issue of safety. The "Safety Action Stage" - one of the highlights for visitors at the previous SHOWTECH - will once again feature a large number of live demonstrations relating to the issues of event safety and occupational health and safety. Top themes this year will be lifeline systems, personal safety equipment and fire prevention and protection. Other new themes on the programme are the safe handling of lasers, liquid gas and fog machines.
SHOWTECH Product Award is looking for the best innovations
Efficient, flexible, functional or simply well designed - the outstanding new products in stage, lighting, audio and event technology will once again be granted the SHOWTECH Product Award this year. The winners in the four categories will be chosen at SHOWTECH on 7 June - this year at the new DTHG Forum in Hall 4.
During SHOWTECH, the SHOWTECH Product Award will be complemented by a second award, the WIZARD, for the first time. With this prize, the trade show honours the most creative stage technology used in theatre and event productions. The WIZARD will be awarded during the SHOWTECH Night on 8 June at the Palais am Funkturm.
