Stage|Set|Scenery is to be terminated

The final curtain came down: Stage|Set|Scenery will not take place as planned from 15 to 17 June 2021. After an intensive review of the future viability of the trade show and conference for theater, film and event technology, Messe Berlin has decided to discontinue the event. The last Stage|Set|Scenery took place from 18 to 20 June 2019 and will not continue as such in the future.

"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 Dr. Martin Buck, Head of Travel & Logistics at Messe Berlin. "Despite positive developments, the event unfortunately fell short of expectations."

"We deeply regret this decision. However, in these economically challenging times, we unfortunately had to make this decision, since Stage|Set|Scenery is unlikely to achieve necessary results this year or in the years to come," continued Dr. Martin Buck. "On behalf of the Stage|Set|Scenery team, I would like to thank our partners, exhibitors and visitors for their dedicated support and cooperation as well as the productive exchange over the past years."

Stage|Set|Scenery in brief:

The trade show and conference for theater, film and event technology was held by Messe Berlin in cooperation with Deutsche Theatertechnische Gesellschaft (DTHG) which also organises the International Stage Technology Conference, an integral part of the show. Since 2015, Stage|Set|Scenery took place every two years on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. 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.
