HIGH END 2023 Show Report
High End Society's HIGH END 2023 Event In Munich Germany
From May 18th to 21st, 2023, the very special 40th HIGH END trade show in Munich
once again shined the spotlight on luxurious premium music reproduction systems, inspiring listening enjoyment and exquisite audio technology. For many years, the HIGH END
show has provided both the big players within the industry and smaller owner-managed companies with their ideal presentation platform as the
world's leading audio trade show. It was the perfect place to establish business relationships, expand networks,
exchange ideas and experiences with other industry experts.

HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Ray Chowkwanyun Motorworld München was opened during 2021 and brought forth an automotive experience like no other! Both novices and hardcore enthusiasts alike can
bask within the special driving culture as only Germany can do! Home of the autobahn lifestyle, you can enjoy seeing over 30 of the most valuable and exclusive vehicle

Munich-Freimann. This is directly across the street from the M.O.C. where the HIGH END show takes place. Motorworld München is the largest self-supporting historic steel halls in Europe, plus admission is free 365 days a year! I hope you enjoy the

Munich HIGH END
2023 Show Report A newbie's hi-fi adventure at HIGH END 2023 in Munich.
HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Ray Chowkwanyun Just made it to Munich from Vienna before the car broke down. Pondering how to get
back. My vision of the Munich HIGH END 2023 hi-fi show
is that it would be me sitting down with the exhibitor and doing a leisurely A/B
of Linda Rondstadt's "You're No Good" met with loud guffaws from show
veterans. This is not a casual gathering of your neighborhood audiophiles. This
is serious business. A trade show in short, full of serious-minded folks in grey
suits bent on the pursuit of the almighty Deutschmark. ---> Munich HIGH END 203 Show Report.
Kennedy's HIGH END 2023 Show Report Europe's largest, and most attended, premium audio show!
HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Jason Kennedy A year after Europe's biggest high-end audio show returned to the MOC exhibition
center in Munich there was some question over whether it would remain as popular
as it had been before the pandemic, as it turned out that question was answered
on the first of the four days with a substantial turn out from exhibitors and
visitors alike. Last year there were very few companies from the Far East at
HIGH END 2023, as they returned in force with one brand, ESD, bringing the
biggest system ever seen at the event and taking over the largest room. ---> Jason Kennedy's HIGH END 2023 Show Report.

HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Carlos Martin Schwab For someone with a background in professional sound, immersing myself in an insanely expensive home audio fair, or High-End (a term that defines the branch of audio
that has no limits to reaching sonic perfection), is as interesting as fun, and that's why I've been doing it since 2014. This year, most of the 550 exhibitors did their best and the fair received more than 22,000
visitors. ---> HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Carlos Martin Schwab.
HIGH END 2023 Munich Show Coverage Celebrating 40 years... to become the world leader of premium audio
HIGH END 2023 Show Report By Andrija Ćurković I recall with nostalgia some past times and the "Hi-Fi
Show" trade shows in London in the 1990s at Heathrow Airport, as
well as CES in Las Vegas in the 2000s, as
two ultimate annual determinations for every audio manufacturer and
self-respecting journalist. During the same period, the HIGH
END Show was also held in Frankfurt. More precisely, the Kempinski Hotel
is located within the small town of Neu-Isenburg, a suburb of Frankfurt halfway
to the airport. Not as glamorous as the previous two, this show was significant
to manufacturers in Europe, primarily due to its proximity to the surrounding
countries and good transport connections. ---> HIGH END 2023 Munich Show Coverage.

International Parts + Supply
At the same time as HIGH END, the Society's International
Parts + Supply (IPS) event perfectly complemented High End Society's show, which has developed into the largest international hi-fi show and enjoys tremendous significance and international popularity within the audio industry. Manufacturers of supply parts for the audio industry
were provided a special exhibition area in the MOC event
center, alongside the HIGH END 2023, offering an ideal platform for establishing more intensive contact with their customers and optimally showcasing their products tailored to their target group.
Attendees could meet the entire world of hi-fi experts and professionals at Munich's MOC exhibition grounds. Two trade visitor days give exhibitors the perfect chance to plan their B2B meetings with no stress and without being pressed for time. As a parts manufacturer and supplier, you
could immensely benefit from these conditions, because your customers are already
there in Munich.
360° Range Of Products And Services
The exhibition allowed a unique insight into the market of the entire international audio industry. The HIGH END
offered a variety of the luxury audio market – from analog to digital. Proven analog technology is entering into new alliances with digital developments of recent years. Through the dramatic evolution in entertainment electronics, ushered in by digitalization and virtualization, streaming continues to be widely popular.
Vinyl records were of course being offered for sale too. Heavy vinyl discs that users
could touch and hold in their hands have been enjoying continuous growth now for years, after all, symbolizing an oasis of peace in a hectic, high-tech world. Here, exhibition visitors
reveled in a unique opportunity to discover a wide range of musical gems and to pursue their passion of enjoying music without being in a hurry.
Consumer Electronics For All Age
