EVI Audio Hausmesse 2006: A New Dimension
The EVI Audio Hausmesse, the firm’s in-house trade fair, has long been assured of a place in the calendar of the global pro audio sector - a status consolidated by the 20th edition of the fair, which ran from the 27th to the 29th January 2006 and to which the team led by Telex Communications Pro Audio Group President Mathias von Heydekampf and EVI Audio Managing Director Lutz Berneke were pleased to welcome around 700 industry insiders from almost 60 countries.
This year, the company’s business and media partners enjoyed a Hausmesse with a few organizational novelties, including the relocation of all product demonstrations to the modern and acoustically outstanding Theater am Hagen in Straubing - a sound decision to judge by the feedback from dealers and representatives of the media to the demonstrations by Martin Traut (Dynacord) and Christian Glueck (Electro-Voice).
The highlight of the demos was the presentation of Dynacord’s brand-new high-powered amplifier range, the Power-H Series - with striking support from the internationally established percussion group ’Industrial Drums’, known inter alia for its performances at the dedication of Munich’s Allianz Arena as well as the Champions’ League final.
Another addition to the timetable that was favorably received by the thirty or so journalists that had made the trip to Straubing was the press conference conducted by Mathias von Heydekampf, also in the Theater am Hagen. In the course of a lively and entertaining PowerPoint presentation, the president of the Telex Pro Audio Group outlined the company’s philosophy and with it the secrets of its success, with numerous world-class references (LIVE 8, World Cup venues etc.) substantiating Telex / EVI Audio’s claim to leadership in the pro audio industry.
