Le Maitre is delighted to have been asked to provide the pyrotechnics as well as flame effects for this year’s PRG Festhalle exhibit at Prolight & Sound. Live shows will take place 18 times a day over the course of the four day exhibition with free entry for all visitors.
The Festhalle, the main hall at the Frankfurt show, occupies over 32,000 sq ft and will be the home for PRG over the course of the 4-day show. Visitors will be able to watch a spectacular live event production where they can experience PRG’s integration of complex systems using state of the art light, sound and video technology. Attendees can also go on “behind the scene” tours to learn more about the services and market sectors that PRG serves.
Le Maitre will be providing over 2000 pyro products in the form of 1x35ft Gerbs and 30’ Gold Glitter Mines, as well as their CometFlames for the 60 shows.

The LEA awards go to the people who make things happen behind the scenes in this industry – the organisers, artist managers, concert promoters, and venue operators, and about 1300 guests from the national and international music and event scene, will attend the event in the festival hall.
