LEaTcon 01 DJMad Networking Party

LEaT con, the networking event for the entertainment and event industry, invites you to the Hamburg Messe from October 22 to 24, 2024. After the kick-off BANG with a super offer, regular ticket sales have now started, and the organizer is announcing the first program highlights – and they leave no doubt: This event is a must for all industry insiders. This year’s LEaT con offers an impressive program featuring top-class lectures and innovative experience areas. Unforgettable insights, valuable new contacts, and inspirations from the most innovative minds in the industry are waiting to be collected.

Basic ticket holders can look forward to exciting lectures and panels on the Main Stage, including Christopher Bauder's keynote "Between creativity and technology: how software, AI and media are redefining content creation" and a subsequent debate on the pros and cons of AI application in the event context. In a second keynote, audio expert Tom Ammermann discusses the latest technological developments in the audio segment (spatial was yesterday) and provides insights into groundbreaking projects like The Sphere in Las Vegas. A follow-up panel will focus on the tension between extreme tech development and matching audio content.

Many exciting lectures and presentations showcase technical developments, such as in the area of audio network protocols (one size does not fit all). British sound designer Simon Honywill provides insights into the sound design of the legendary Glastonbury Festival and the challenges of noise protection at open-air events. Thomas Giegerich (bright!) takes listeners into the world of "AR and interactive in live communication" and Sven Kubin discusses the five safety levels in rigging and advises, “Your job has a hook - use it!” Various panels will address important overarching topics, such as the work reality of an individual event technician (including social security) or the unique situation of women in the industry. We also pose the provocative question: “What role does light (still) play in set design?” Participation and exchange are expressly encouraged!
