Pioneer DJ has signed up as a Gold Partner for the MI Retail Conference & Expo, in association with Musikmesse.
The event takes place next month at The Brewery, Chiswell Street, London on Wednesday June 29th. Over 250 retailers are set to attend the conference sessions and exhibition.
"Pioneer is delighted to confirm that we are Gold Partners for this year's MI Retail Conference & Expo," said the firm's UK sales manager Martin Dockree. "In recent times we have seen the lines between DJ and music production become increasingly blurred and we feel there is an audience out there who would receive great value from many Pioneer products.
"We are looking to explore a broader marketplace with our initial focus on our speakers and laptop controllers, which we feel share synergy with the MI market. We very much look forward to attending this year's MI Retail Conference & Expo and further exploring this exciting industry."
Further sponsors include Audio-Technica, Barnes & Mullins, CPC, Music Sales, Yamaha, Allianz, Casio, FCN Music, Intermusic, Korg, Lamba, Monacor, Mel Bay, Studiomaster, Tanglewood, Tascam and Wharfedale Pro, with Roland once again sponsoring the after-show party.
Musikmesse is the headline sponsor of the event.
