Messe Frankfurt and NAMM to Launch Russian Trade Shows in 2012
Messe Frankfurt and NAMM have announced that they will be co-producing new shows in Russia in May of 2012. The new shows will be called NAMM Musikmesse Russia and Prolight + Sound NAMM Russia and will take place in Moscow’s Expo Centre from 16 to 19 May 2012.
NAMM Musikmesse Russia will focus on the musical instrument sector. And the Prolight + Sound NAMM show will concurrently represent event technology – a combination that has been highly successful in Frankfurt. Musikmesse, which reflects the musical instrument sector, and Prolight + Sound, which presents the world of event technology, take place concurrently at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre every year, and offer a variety of synergies for exhibitors and visitors. Moreover, many products are also used in both the amateur and professional fields. Naturally, visitors to one fair can also attend the other. NAMM and Messe Frankfurt have been successfully cooperating on the Music China show in Shanghai since 2006.
The Russian musical market is potentially the largest in Europe, characterized by the large population of around 145 million people, developed musical culture and sustainable growth trends over the last years. The volume of the Russian musical instruments and technologies market is estimated at 600 million Euro (2008).
