HIGH END 2021 set to go ahead in Munich


Organisers of audio exhibition HIGH END 2021 have revealed their Covid-19 secure plans to hold the show as close to normal as possible in May next year.

Scheduled to take place from 13 to 16 May 2021 at the MOC Event Centre in Munich, manufacturers, distributors and service providers are being invited to showcase their latest solutions to a live audience in a new trade show format. 

Taking more of a focus on B2B, the 2021 event will feature two trade visitor days rather than just one, aiming to disperse the flow of visitors as well as ensuring that customer meetings can take place without being rushed for time. 

“We have made the most of the opportunities that have arisen from this unprecedented situation,” said Stefan Dreischärf, managing director of organiser, HIGH END SOCIETY. “WE are convinced that even under changed conditions, the HIGH END can offer every possibility for successful business and also provide visitors with an exciting and interesting experience at the same time.”

The usual side events, SOUND-SCLEVER and the HIGH END KOLLEG, will also take place alongside the trade show. In addition to these existing side events, 2021 will see IPS (International Parts & Supply) also run alongside HIGH END. Taking place in a separate area of the MOC Event Centre, IPS provides a platform for manufacturers of supply parts for the hi-fi industry to establish connections with customers and showcase their products. 

HIGH END SOCIETY is working closely with the venue to make the show a Covid-19 secure event. There will be larger minimum sizes for exhibition stands, wider aisles and clearly marked route through the halls to keep visitors and exhibitors safe. 

Organisers added: “A workable and flexible hygiene and infection prevention concept will ensure that the trade show can take place under the changed general conditions with no concerns.”
