Manunta/M2Tech at Audiovista (Germany)
Audiovista is the headphone show in West Germany, based on the idea of Hans Buxbaum and Dieter Mallach – as a result of a conversation after CanJam 2017 at the Nhow Hotel Berlin. The reason was and is to locate the event in the geographic center of the headphone enthusiasts. The implementation of this idea was soon decided and resulted in the realization of the Audiovista.
In February 2018 the first Audiovista took place in Krefeld. For a Saturday alone could be mobilized by word of mouth, forum and Facebook a community that has surprised the organizers more than: There were already many exhibitors and brands represented, some forums were involved and there were many hundreds of visitors, including some from abroad.
This second edition promises to be even better than the first one. M2Tech will exhibit with her German brand Manunta, courtesy of our German distributor Higoto/Digital Highend/Audionext. A preview will be demoed, don’t miss it! Please visit Audiovista website for details.
