Frankfurt Fun in


The annual pilgrimage to Frankfurt had me full of anticipation for new product and innovation, and is increasingly becoming an international product launch platform. I concentrated on Halls 8, 9, and 11, as there was simply too much to see in each of the halls, so I apologise if I missed anybody.

Robe always have a classy stand and this years was no exception with giant multicoloured Newton Balls hanging centre stage, and the huge roster of Robe Effects. I was very taken with the possibilities of the City flex unit, which was shown very effectively on a large display.
