All International Brands’ Senior Management expressed complete satisfaction with the PALM organisation, in providing satisfactory and very high standards in all services, from registration process to a very high percentage of interested visitors of professional background.

“Participation is meaningful for international high quality manufacturers only when we meet personally very knowledgeable professionals from the local market, who are also important buyers, in this respect PALM show gets full marks” these responses assure of the PALM attraction to the entire segment of the professional industry in stage light and sound, music production and AV integration.

The highlight of the PALM Expo as in the past years is the HARMAN Live Arena, which was once again a huge attraction. The creation and construction of the Demo Qube exhibit at the PALM was a winner with the target delegates as this novel idea and its successful delivery at the PALM exhibited a tremendous effort and solution for the pro light and sound industry to provide original demo environment. “The Qube was very productive and leads to business and contributes to the growth and development of the market in India. The PALM deserves Kudos for fulfilling a need for professional demo space.”
