The “German Event Academy“ (DEA) is the academy of VPLT and it offers a comprehensive range from daytime classes to 16-week-master classes. The DPVT is the Certification Board of the Entertainment Industry in Germany. Borne by the leading German trade associations, it offers certification for rental companies as well as expertise and product certifications for the entire media and event industry.
Due to its regular and growing activities in the areas of media systems and system integration, VPLT has made the decision to expand its services as well as its staff. From the beginning of 2012, Juergen Kreis has joined the VPLT-team in the position of business executive. He will support the chairman Peter Klotz and vice-chairman Dietmar Rottinghaus in their positions as the responsible executive board of the association.
Florian von Hofen will continue being in charge of important areas of VPLT's work, such as the VPLT magazine, cooperation with Prolight+Sound Exhibitions / Messe Frankfurt and all other activities in the field of Media Systems and System Integration.
