Standing Room Only at Sibelius in Frankfurt Musikmesse 2007
Over 1000 people watch live demonstrations of leading music notation software
at the world’s largest music fair
It was standing room only on the Sibelius stand at Frankfurt Musikmessa 2007 – the world’s largest music fair – as over 1000 visitors flocked to see demonstrations of Sibelius 4, the world’s best-selling music notation software. More than 6000 visitors requested a demo CD of the program – around 5.5% of the show’s total attendance.
Sibelius staff ran 24 product demonstrations in English and German during the show, and capacity was running at 150% (Thankfully, people were willing to stand!)
“The response at this year’s Messe has just been amazing” says Jeremy Silver, MD of Sibelius. “The stand was packed the whole time, and we had lots of tremendous feedback from attendees. We’ll definitely be back next year”.
Over 108,000 people attended the Musikmesse from 120 countries during the four days from March 28th. Over 2,400 companies exhibited at the event, which was first run 28 years ago.
