Germany - The opening night usually decides how successful a play will be. In the case of Stage|Set|Scenery 2015 the debut can be summarised as follows: satisfied exhibitors, enthusiastic trade visitors, high-ranking political figures and a substantial international appeal, say the organisers.

From Tuesday, 9 to Thursday, 11 June 2015 over 6,000 trade visitors came to find out about the latest trends in event technology from 270 exhibitors representing 24 countries at the Berlin convention. Attendees represented planning, architecture, film, event services, stage, lighting, sound, video and media technology, make-up, costume and stage-set design, acoustics, studio, exhibition and museum technology.

Besides Prof. Monika Grütters, State Minister for Culture and the Media, Brigitte Zypries, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and Tim Renner, State Secretary for Cultural Affairs of the Land of Berlin, also visited Stage|Set|Scenery.

Dr. Christian Göke, CEO of Messe Berlin commented, "Stage|Set|Scenery proved that event technology has firmly established itself as a topic in Berlin. We were able to secure the participation of the industry's key players. One-third of exhibitors and one-third of trade visitors came from abroad. Over the coming two years we will be aiming to increase the event's international dimension and the number of exhibitors and trade visitors."

The next Stage|Set|Scenery will take place from 20 to 22 June 2017
