The first day of the 'laser marathon' will be held at the University of Applied Sciences in Aalen. Here you find the open laser boxes, tech talk, show room, presentations, seminars and laser shows non-stop.

After a long break, once again the best laser shows are honored on the occasion of the 5th LaserFreak Awards by the attendees. For the first time there will be also a multi-projector category with 3 or 5 projectors.

On the second day, LOBO opens exklusively for LaserFreaks and ILDA members the gates to their holy halls including shows, safety talks with Greg Markov, probably the world's most experienced  specialist in laser show safety, laser check in the LOBO labs as well as interesting roundtable discussions.

On the third day the ILDA Trade Show will take place in the Ramada Hotel Limes Thermen. In this dedicated laser show trade show virtually all major players of the show laser industry present their novelties and are available for discussions.
