It has become a fond tradition: the award show ceremony for the PIPA, MIPA, Opus and Sinus Awards. As in years past, the nominees and winners assemble in the Europe Room to honor the most innovative and impressive products and shows together.

Award ceremony under the auspices of the music media publisher

It’s not just the awards that have a long tradition – MIPA, the music awards were conveyed for the 19th time – there’s also the opening by Michael Biwer, Group Show Director for Prolight + Sound Musikmesse. He not only thanked the MM Musik Media Verlag, under whose auspices the award show is, he also mentioned Wolfgang Lück, head of the Music Trade Fair.

This is a special evening for Kim Roberts, CEO of the Musik Media Verlags. The publisher was recently honored to receive an award. In the show’s openening, Kim Roberst said, “This evening we wanted to have that feeling of having received an award that we present to the winner today.”
