Music Inside Rimini is ready to face a new challenge. The exclusive innovative format created by the Italian Exhibition Group team is ready to welcome thousands of music and entertainment fans, trade members and pros.
The fourth edition of the event dedicated to Lighting, Sound, Visuals, Integrated Systems & Broadcast is scheduled to be held on May 5th, 6th and 7th 2019 in IEG´s Rimini expo centre, with the aim of increasing 2018´s excellent results, which chalked up a rise of 20% in attendance, reaching the record figure of over 12,000.

To continue to offer the best possible experiences, with unique opportunities for meeting, networking and checking out the solutions offered by market leaders, MIR has lined up important new features. In fact, the expo event´s 2019 edition will propose a new live format, focussing attention on four specific thematic areas: Lighting, Sound, Visuals, Integrated Systems, Live Broadcast Production and Music DJ production. As always, the expo activity will be flanked by a series of side events and appointments with great professionals of international level.

These include the outstanding event Lighting Designers at Work, with Jo Campana, Giovanni Pinna and Mamo Pozzoli . lighting designers for artistes of the calibre of Vasco Rossi, Ligabue, Gianna Nannini and Cesare Cremonini . who will show their skills and creative and practical approaches, putting together a CUE LIST on a lighting console, in a simulation that precisely recreates their work in the field.
The Live You Play format, officially part of the MIR brand since October 2018, announces the creation of two new types of stage: DJing and Theatre. The latter, in particular, entirely equipped with audio, video, lighting and effects technology from the sector´s key companies, will occupy an entire hall and host top-grade live performances enabling to better appreciate the solutions featured.

There is also eager expectation for IntegrAlive, the area dedicated to integrated systems, equipped with products and solutions able to recreate the technology´s real-life application conditions and settings. Entirely organized by the magazine Connessioni, this expo area will be able to be used at various levels: a demo area dedicated to the corporate world, a specific one for Digital Signage e Retail applications, and another for the theatre world. This activity will also be supported by a specific program of seminars for professionals and buffs, guided visits and networking opportunities.

Among the new features of the fourth edition of MIR worth mentioning, the new area dedicated to drones, devices that enable aerial coverage of concerts and shows, in collaboration with DJI Enterprise, a pioneer and absolute leader in this sector.
