The end of May saw the third gathering of the Gesamtverband Deutscher Musikfachgeschäfte e.V. (GDM): the Federation of German Music Dealers. Held on the premises of the Messe Frankfurt, the event gave dealers and suppliers from all over Germany an opportunity to exchange views and information on matters of interest to the entire sector.

One of the highlights of the meeting was the presentation of the 'Product of the Year' awards, the 500 or so members of the GDM having been invited to vote in the run-up to the event on which – in their opinion – were the best and most innovative new products produced by the musical instruments and music electronics industries in 2011.

For the dealers, the 'Product of the Year' in the Music Electronics category was the PowerMate3 from DYNACORD, the third generation of the world's best-selling powered mixer. Receiving the award on behalf of the company from Frank Steinbrecher, the Chairman of the Fachverband Musikeletronik (Association of Music Electronics Dealers), Jürgen Langhorst, DYNACORD's MI Sales Director Germany said: "This award is a really special one as it comes from our immediate customers. Given their competence to rule on the matter, one could wish for no finer accolade."
