A Hausmesse with many Highlights
From January 10-13 2008, the international pro audio scene assembled for the 21st time in Straubing, Lower Bavaria, for the EVI Audio Hausmesse, where the team led by Sales Manager Robert Hesse and Works Manager Konrad Proyer was pleased to welcome around 700 industry and media partners from 48 different countries. The program of this year’s Hausmesse included not only breakouts of new products but also comprehensive demonstrations and workshops, as well as a tour of the new production hall and new test and demo hall.
At the international press reception on January 11 in Straubing’s Theater am Hagen, Christian Glueck (Electro-Voice) and Martin Traut (Dynacord) followed up Vice President of Business Unit Communication Systems Robert Mulatz’s words of welcome to the assembled media partners with a presentation of the year’s new products. Among the highlights were the new Electro-Voice ZX3 2-way loudspeaker and DC-One digital loudspeaker controller, both set to make a siginificant impact in 2008.
Extending over 6,000 square meters and representing an investment of around eight million euros, the much-admired new production, test and demo complex was another of the stars of the Hausmesse. From the various guided tours of the works, distributors and representatives of the media could build up a detailed image of the recently opened facilities, which were constructed in line with the latest production methods.
