altGet a stand at the 2012 Munich High End Show for free!

For the first time, the High End Society, which runs the Munich High End Show, is offering new businesses the chance to present their wares or ideas at one of the world’s largest hi-fi shows at no charge. At High End 2012, in Hall 3, a ‘Newcomer’ area will be set up to allow start-up companies to present their ideas and developments free of charge (‘The Young & Wild’). ‘As show organisers, we are regularly confronted with young companies registering with us who would like to take the opportunity to present their developments and prototypes at an exhibition but do not have the financing available for a stand or are unable to present a series production which is usually required by us as an admission criterion,’ says show organiser Renate Paxa. ‘In these discussions, we have realised with regret, that there were really interesting ideas or technical solutions which deserved to be introduced at an exhibition. This is why the High End Society has decided to reserve a special section for these start-up companies to present their ideas free of charge.

Paxa said that to be eligible, companies must have registered as a business within 15 months of the date of the first day of the 2012 exhibition. Also, exhibition space will be allocated only after an assessment process because space is limited and will be merit-based. To be eligible for the free space you must send your application in writing, before 1st February 2012. (For ordinary exhibitor registrations, the deadline is 31st December 2011.)
