HIGH END 2021 Show Report
HIGH END Show In Munich Postponed Until May 2022
The world's leading audio trade show will therefore return to its usual spring timeslot and be held at the MOC Event Center in Munich from May 19 to 22, 2022. The IPS – International Parts + Supply event, which was due to be held alongside the HIGH END, has also be postponed until the new year and will open its doors for the first time on May 19 and 20, 2022.
Although the halls and atriums of the MOC are fully booked and a detailed hygiene and infection protection concept has been carefully developed, the organiser believes that taking this action at an early stage is necessary given the current situation. "We have prepared for the event extremely well and were confident that the HIGH END and the new IPS would be able to take place this autumn despite the changing conditions," states Stefan Dreischärf, Managing Director of the event organiser, the company HIGH END SOCIETY Service GmbH. He regrets that all hi-fi fans will now have to wait even longer for the annual industry highlight due to the postponement. "That said, we have to adopt a far-sighted approach to maintain the trust of our exhibitors. Given the slow development on a global scale, we believe that the current situation is too uncertain. The risk of having to cancel the event at short notice is simply too high," explains the experienced trade show manager.
Given that the pandemic is not being curbed as rapidly as hoped, nobody can foresee whether an international trade show would actually be able to take place with satisfying results for everyone involved in September. When planning and hosting their trade shows, Stefan Dreischärf and his team put everything into providing their exhibitors with optimal conditions for successful business. What's more, the organiser is aware of its continued responsibility to protect the health of all parties involved and guarantee planning reliability. With the prospect that the current measures will have been significantly eased by next year, and global travel is therefore likely to be possible with no limitations, there is nothing to stop the HIGH END and IPS from providing a successful and enjoyable trade show experience in May 2022.

HIGH END 2021 Exhibitor Space Sold Out
From September 9 to 12, 2021, the 39th HIGH END trade show in Munich will yet again shine the spotlight on excellent music reproduction, inspiring listening enjoyment and exquisite audio technology. For many years, the HIGH END has been providing both the big players in the industry and smaller owner-managed companies with their ideal presentation platform as the world's leading audio trade show. It is the perfect place to establish business relationships, expand networks and exchange ideas and experiences with other industry experts. After trade shows all over the world were brought to a standstill by the pandemic, the international audio show now wants to further develop its high significance for the B2B area. "The second trade visitor day has attracted a consistently positive response", reports Stefan Dreischärf, Managing Director of HIGH END SOCIETY Service GmbH. "We are very pleased about this situation and will do everything that we can to ensure that the HIGH END can take place in extremely safe conditions." Dreischärf does, of course, regret that he will probably be unable to accept all registrations. As was the case in previous years, all further enquiries received for the HIGH END will now have to be placed on the waiting list given that the event is fully booked.
The September dates chosen for the event provide a high degree of planning reliability, which is likely to be particularly important for exhibitors and visitors from outside Germany. After all, current developments indicate that global travel will still be restricted in the early summer. Holding the trade show after the summer months allows more time for the advancing global vaccine rollout and the resulting immunization and containment of the pandemic. The wide variety of testing options now available increase confidence that events with a large number of participants will be able to be held by September. As can be expected, the event organizer has also developed a reliable and flexible hygiene concept that can be adapted to suit changing circumstances at any time.
The HIGH END is the undisputed international leader when it comes to impressively setting the tone for top-class music reproduction. The trade show has been providing ideas and impetus for producers, distributors, sellers and consumers of high-quality consumer electronics for four decades. Each year, representatives from the entire industry convene on four days at the HIGH END in Munich. From leading global players, right down to innovative start-ups, the exhibitors provide solid proof of their innovative verve, which they present to an international public at the HIGH END.
ALTI Automotive Audio Conference
ALTI's inaugural conference in Europe promises to be a major event. ALTI Automotive Audio Conference will be co-locating at the MOC in Munich with the High End Audio Show and the International Parts Supply Show (IPS). The interior of the vehicle is becoming increasingly important. It is very likely that the vehicle interior will be used in a completely different way in the vehicle of tomorrow. People will use the vehicle to enjoy entertainment, play games, watch movies with family and friends via streaming, make video calls, use the vehicle as a mobile office, communicate with their community on social media. The challenge for OEMs and suppliers is to enable access to rich media content in the vehicle in a safe, user-friendly and secure way, and to achieve flawless image reproduction via displays as well as excellent sound quality. The demands for an excellent sound system will increase and with it the desire for new technologies, such as sound zones and immersive audio. The conference will provide an overview of the advances made in recent years and address many of the new demands in this emerging area of audio technology.
The new ALTI Automotive Audio Conference will provide a forum for professional exchange as well as discussion and presentation of new technologies and processes within the dynamic Automotive Audio industry.
