Making their first visit to China, Meyer Sound co-founders John and Helen Meyer
will attend the PALM China 2016 Expo in Beijing this September to emphasize the
company’s commitment to serving the Asia-Pacific region with leading-edge
professional audio technologies. The Meyers will be available to meet with key
customers, consultants, experts and the audio trade press. In addition, company
CEO John Meyer will address the annual conference of the China Entertainment
Technology Association on August 31.
The two founders’ first-time visit to China is in response to increasing demand for
the company’s advanced technologies as evidenced by high-profile installations
throughout the country. “China has become the world leader in creating
imaginative, large-scale entertainment spectaculars,’ observes John Meyer. “These
are among the largest and most sophisticated audio systems anywhere, and we’re
proud that Meyer Sound technologies are at the core of so many of them.’
Extensive systems of Meyer Sound loudspeakers and networked D-Mitri digital audio
platforms have been installed recently for the Dai Show in Xishuangbanna, the Han
