is shutting down yet another event. After Bautec, it's now the turn of Stage Set Scenery – after an intensive review of the future viability of the trade show and conference for theatre, film and event technology, as the organiser reports.
The event scheduled for June 15 to 17, 2021 will now not take place. "With Stage Set Scenery, we have been trying since 2015 to establish an international industry meeting place and cross-trade exchange at Berlin for those who otherwise work behind the scenes to ensure perfect staging", said Martin Buck, head of travel and logistics at Messe Berlin. Despite positive developments, the event unfortunately fell short of expectations. Because the show is unlikely to achieve the necessary results this year or in the years to come, it will not be continued.
„The event unfortunately fell short of expectations. “
The trade show and conference for theatre, film and event technology has been staged since 2015 by Messe Berlin in cooperation with the Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft (DTHG). The latest trends, developments and products from the fields of stage equipment and control systems, architecture and planning, lighting, acoustics, sound, video and media technology, studio technology, events, museum and event technology, furnishing and stage scenery, make-up, costumes and safety systems were presented. The DTHG was responsible for the International Stage Technology Conference integrated into the trade fair. Stage Set Scenery took place every two years on the Berlin exhibition grounds, the last being in 2019.
