CITT/ICTS welcomed the North American entertainment industry to Montreal for the fourth annual Expo-Scène trade show and conference, which was held at the Palais des congrès de Montréal from March 28-29, 2018. Expo-Scène is currently the only major Canadian event dedicated to professionals in the pro audio, sound, lighting, audiovisual, video, and multimedia technology markets.

This year’s sold-out show featured a bigger hall and more exhibit space, hosting more than 80 exhibitors and showcasing hundreds of products and new technologies, as well as educational seminars and hearing tests. For the first time, Expo-Scène also featured sold-out pre-show workshops.

“We are thrilled to see an increase in attendees, especially from neighbouring provinces and from abroad. The show is continuing to grow and is undeniably the major production and entertainment technology show in Canada,” says Monique Corbeil, CITT/ICTS national coordinator

Educational seminars in French and English were held on both days of the show. Among the audio-related seminars were an AV over IP class from Techni+Contact, Axient digital wireless training from Shure, simplified networks from QSC, Digico SD Series training from GerrAudio, and a seminar on system design and tuning from Meyer Sound.

Planning for the fifth edition, scheduled for April 17-18, 2019 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, will commence in the upcoming weeks as organizers say more manufacturers and suppliers are showing interest in exhibiting.
