tmt32: Large exhibition, comprehensive congress, international networking platform

In less than two months, the Tonmeistertagung, Europe's leading pro audio congress, once again invites the industry to the CCD in Düsseldorf. The exhibition area with more than 120 brands and almost 90 exhibitors is fully packed. Some of the exhibiting manufacturers have already announced to use the event as a platform for presenting their technical innovations.

Enlarged exhibition area

In order to meet exhibitors' requests for ten large demo rooms, the exhibition area has been expanded into the new building section and now occupies around 650 square meters. The exhibition area also includes the Education Forum with nine universities, an Associations Area with seven VDT partner associations, and the VDT Lounge, thus providing ample space for networking and communication with colleagues and young professionals. The entire exhibition and the congress will take place on one level.

Extensive conference program

The conference area of the 32nd Tonmeistertagung will be a real visitor magnet again this year. A total of more than 150 individual contributions (more than 50 contributions held in English) by luminaries from all over the world, summarized in a variety of different topics, offer the ideal framework for information, networking and professional exchange. The 20 or so topics range from acoustics to networked audio and video technology, from broadcast to research and development to soundscapes and acoustic ecology, from next generation audio and trimedial production to game audio and miking. The topics of mastering, film sound and, of course, immersive audio will again be prominently represented. The finals of this year's 3D Competition round off the program. Numerous master classes and tutorials will be offered especially for newcomers or for those who want to familiarize themselves with a new subfield. The Live Mixing Workshop, organized by d&b, Neumann & Müller, Sennheiser and Yamaha, has also found a good location in the Congress Center and attracts visitors to Düsseldorf directly on the first day of the Tonmeistertagung. Only a normal exhibition ticket is required for participation.

Ticket store open, KombiTicket for local traffic

Tickets to attend the Tonmeistertagung have been available since the beginning of September. The new ticket store offers exhibition and all-in-one congress tickets, each of which can be booked by the day or for the entire duration of the Tonmeistertagung. VDT members can obtain heavily discounted congress tickets via the MyVDT members' area.
All tickets to the tmt32 are valid as 2nd class tickets for public transport in the VRS and VRR. We would be pleased if as many visitors as possible make use of this and benefit from free, low-emission travel to and from the event. The KombiTicket is valid within the VRS and VRR on all days booked.

Come to the Connecting Audio Night!

By the way: On Thursday evening, Dr. Thompson's Seifenfabrik will host the Connecting Audio Night, the VDT's industry party with good food and excellent live music. As the number of free sold tickets to Connecting Audio Night is limited, the tickets will be placed in different contingent packages in the ticket store peu à peu.

We are looking forward to seeing many familiar and new faces and a lively exchange at this year's Tonmeistertagung - the pro audio community event of the year.
