PLSG2018 Training Programme

Mapping industry needs with talents in large scale live event production

The number of music festivals is skyrocketing in China (269 in 2017, up 33.8%[1]). As such, it is important to look into the planning and production in the right manner in order to stay relevant on the market. The desire for the Chinese entertainment industry to further uplift its event planning skills and technical standards continues to grow.

Mr Jimmy Chan, Head of Business Development of Event Safety Alliance in Asia, sees the importance of live event production as it is one of the future development trends in China: “Prolight + Sound Guangzhou is at the forefront in providing hardware devices and technological solutions for music festivals in China. Also, it provides an extensive platform to connect manufacturers and suppliers with producers and organisers of music festivals.”

There are various crucial aspects that require attention during organisational process, such as event programming, risk and capacity management, marketing and strategic planning, communication and promotion.

Equally fundamental to a well-established music festival includes a wide array of lighting and audio, rigging and staging support. During the event, experts will share tips on getting the technical issues right for achieving a perfect balance in every detail.

The advanced course is geared towards attendees who have prior knowledge in audio networks, and will focus on the ease of use with Dante’s ‘Plug n Play’ technology.
