There are some interesting reasons to be in Hamburg during the next weekend. No, I’m not talking of Reeperbahn (Europe’s largest red light district for those who don’t know), this time it’s all about the Hi-End Gear meeting : in their words, “a platform, where ambitious hobbyists and professional producers, engineers, studio-owners, musicians and pro-audio companies alike can get together, meet new faces and talk gear!. This is NOT about starting another big trade fair, but about giving europe´s studio scene a venue for manufacturers and developers to meet with people who are interested in HI-END GEAR.
A pro-audio foray from big companies to individual small batch series or handwired custom gear, all under one roof in the cozy hanseatic surroundings. With ample space and time for networking between manufacturers, distributers, dealers, press and customers from allover the world.
Face-to-face contact and direct feedback are the perfect complement in the age of the internet.”
We definitely agree. Sounds interesting, ah?
