Exhibition for events, installation and

entertainment technology

15 to 17 january 2024


CUE is the biennial exhibition for events, installation and entertainment technology offers a comprehensive overview of the latest technical facilities for indoor and outdoor stage presentations. CUE is the premier event for technicians in the events and performing arts sectors to catch up and discuss new projects. CUE is supported by the sector organisations VPT, VNPF and VVEM.

In 1987 the Foundation for the Theatre Technology Exhibition was established. It was an initiative of a number of suppliers from the theatre industry. The aim was to set up a professional non-profit exhibition for technicians. During CUE2024 this principle still remains central.

Arts budgets are under pressure in the Netherlands. Dance and theatre companies, orchestras and museums are all forced to make heavy spending cuts, production companies are calling it quits and theatres need to deal with dramatically reduced funding. To weather this storm, creativity has become more important than ever and this also applies to technical facilities. The Netherlands has built up an international reputation for its quality stagecraft. CUE was the premier watering hole for members of the industry to exchange knowledge and experience, enabling them to maintain the high level of their joint expertise.

For three days Hall 1 of Rotterdam Ahoy is the professional platform for exhibitors presenting their products and services in the field of events, installations and entertainment. At CUE tried and tested technology and innovative multimedia solutions go hand in hand. People attend CUE to stay up to date on the latest technical developments, to maintain their existing professional network or to explore new contacts and investment opportunities.
The CUE Experience will be there again in 2024. The CUE Experience is a extra hall where visitors can see, hear and feel what innovative technology the exhibitors have to offer. At CUE Experience, exhibitors can demonstrate their finest products. From sound installations, lights and lasters to smoke machines and other special effects. The possibilities are endless; stages, mist screens, smoke projections, maybe even 360 degrees projections in a dome, or VR demos, an experience for visitors to remember!
