We leave the outline of the show to the organisers:

BARI HI-END is an exhibition show dedicated to the fanciers of music, high fidelity and home theatre, to the musicians, to the operators of the sector, to the dealers and it is promoted by the importers and the manufacturers of high fidelity and video products, musical instruments, labels of quality music, national magazines of the sector.

In the national landscape of the analogous exhibitions BARI HI-END, that has reached at to the 18th edition, is disposed by now like auspicious point of reference for the public of fanciers and musicians from south-Italy.

The first characteristic of the exhibitions has been and is that of presenting an accurate selection of importers and manufacturers among those that they offer an expressive presence in the sector.

All this through listening rooms prepared by qualified technical where they present the best equipment for the reproducing of the sounds and of the images.

This year the novelty was an entire floor in which has been equipped a stage where alternate themselves musical groups in jam sessions, choir performance, local groups with their Mediterranean groove.

Additionally an exposition area has consented to the musicians in visit the trial of the products in show with the demonstrators of the manufacturers of Musical Instrument and Professional Audio System.

There were approximately 33 exhibitors including hardware as well as software vendors. Quite a few were actually selling vinyl so it seems vinyl is still alive and kicking in Italy. Not a surprise given this country is steeped in history and rich in culture. Of the show sponsors, there were even cheese and wine sponsors so the quality of refreshments was certainly of a very high calibre indeed.
