Mar 11 - 10:42 PM, by d-cipher Event > MusikMesse Frankfurt
Event : Musikmesse 2012 Crisis or not Crisis? - macmusicMusikmesse in Frankfurt (Germany) is the world's most international fair for musical instruments, sheet music, music production and marketing, and has been the foremost meeting place for the musical-instrument industry for over 25 years.

Here, you will find a complete range of products with everything required for making music, not to mention innumerable workshops, concerts, demonstrations and discussion events.

Each year, around end of march, MusikMesse represents the biggest music fair in Europe. During the most important economical crisis since 1929, and after the terrifying tsunami in Japan last year, we have seen at NAMM that industry doesn't really make money anymore and stopped development... So new products are launched, but is it really new products or not?
Once and for all, Goodbye!
