Munich High End 2019
Once again, the world’s biggest and most important two-channel, high-end audio show was spectacular and incredibly, it’s still growing. Impressively, this year’s High-End there were 551 exhibitors from 42 countries (+3.8% compared to 2018). In all there were 21,180 visitors (+6.5%), and 8.208 trade visitors from 72 countries (+8.6%).
I’ve attended and covered the High End show with my publisher, Clement Perry since 2009 (I missed last year’s High End show due to a new business opportunity). However, Clement Perry was not able to be at this year’s event so I had to cover the show as much as I possibly could by myself. This show’s far too big for any one person to cover it, but I did my best.
I arrived on Thursday morning in Munich and then I took an airport shuttle bus directly to the MOC. Thursday is reserved for the press only; so I checked my luggage at the MOC’s luggage check- in area and picked up my press badge. Finally, I got to the main hall and I was like a kid in a candy store. Here’s just some of what I found to be very photogenic so far.
