HIGH END 2015

Final Report

Once again, the HIGH END® made a splash as the world’s largest trade fair for the audio industry. For four days, Munich was once again the meeting place and global focus of the international audio industry. The attendance rose again, this time by 16% compared to the previous year. The crowds gathered as usual at the gates, which is why this great increase can rightly be called spectacular.

Just as sensational was the international and diverse presence of the trade visitors who had travelled from every continent in the world. But this is easy to explain, because only the HIGH END fair in Munich offers such a comprehensive view of the entire industry, and all the real movers and shakers are guaranteed to be there.

HIGH END 2015

Trade visitors from all over the world

More than 60 percent of the exhibitors in Munich this year came from abroad – an increase in the international presence of more than 2 percent. Of the 42 countries represented, Germany took first place, followed by the USA, the UK, Italy, Switzerland and France. As well as this, more exhibitors from Asia, and particularly China of course, came to Munich. Trade visitors from Germany and abroad came to find out about the latest technological trends. Almost two thirds of the trade visitors (66 percent) came from abroad, with 71 countries represented, most prominently the UK, Italy, Austria, China, Switzerland, France and the Netherlands.

This shows that the fair has developed internationally into an indispensable global marketplace. This means the HIGH END has continued to grow in international prestige and is now unquestionably the most important platform for both the domestic and international markets. The HIGH END attracted a lot of media attention: the trade press and daily newspapers, television and radio around the world reported on the topic of audio reproduction. A total of 504 journalists from 38 countries visited the fair. More than half of the journalists (53 percent) came from abroad.

The HIGH END clearly emphasised its character as the leading international fair. This year’s fair was another perfect opportunity for the industry to show off innovations and celebrate the legendary HIGH END community spirit. The fair gave all those who were interested a chance to see what the international audio market currently has to offer. The HIGH END showed that people are as fascinated as ever by high-fidelity music reproduction – no matter how big or small their wallet is. It was a great fair with a lively atmosphere and everyone was talking about the numerous opportunities for the future.

Everyone met up in Munich. The HIGH END provided the visitors with a wide and varied range of things to see and do – whether they wanted to find out about the latest home entertainment technology, look for new records, enjoy the musical performances, compare the sound of the various music systems, take look at the latest headphones or simply chat about their hobby with fellow enthusiasts over a tasty snack in the beer garden. The HIGH END left nothing to be desired and had something for everyone. There was an exciting and varied mix of innovations, trends, information, opportunities for networking, live music and a full programme of entertainment and events.

HIGH END 2015:

International Status

The HIGH END thus yet again proved its status as the most popular international fair for the industry and underlined its leading position with record numbers of exhibitors and guests. Not only the global players, but also a large number of small audio specialists showed that their keenness to develop new products is as sharp as ever.

In 2015, the HIGH END once again impressively demonstrated its position as the most important exhibition for the high-end home entertainment sector. Our customers, the numerous exhibitors from all over the world, were very happy. The atmosphere was excellent and the trade visitors and consumers showed a remarkable level of interest. What more could we want as organisers?
