Start-ups – new entrepreneurs introduce themselves

Hall 1 – Stand B07

Since 2012, the HIGH END SOCIETY has offered young and new companies a presence free of charge at the HIGH END. Since then, there has indeed been strong interest in this offer, and the “Newcomer Area” provided by the HIGH END has developed into a popular forum for up-and-coming start-up companies. New entrepreneurs have the opportunity to introduce themselves at a group stand. This year, a total of six start-up companies were chosen from the large number of applications received. They involve manufacturers of traditional product lines such as loudspeakers, electronics, turntables and even TV hi-fi furniture in a special design.
