PALM Expo was launched in 2001, in response to the top music recording engineers in Bombay desiring a dedicated pro audio expo. Bombay was the music recording capital and Bollywood Bombay boasted of the big studios and big sound rental companies and the beginning of the big stage. There was this earnest desire to prove India had what it takes to establish the best studios and best sound gear in the world. Pro Audio and Pro Sound industry magazine was Playback and Fast Forward and Pro Sound Systems the earlier avatars of PALM magazine. PALM just had to happen and it was a Karma trust upon PALM to produce an expo whatever it takes!! Fact is the industry responded in equal measure and ever since PALM has become an industry driven expo celebrating the mojo of the pro audio industry in India.

A.R. Rahman inaugurated the first PALM Expo; he was delighted in doing so. A.R. Rahman and his music spoke as much of sound engineering excellence and knowledge of the pro audio and PALM was ready to rock. The Rise of PALM indeed was due to the extreme enthusiasm of the pro audio industry to explore new technology, the trade was hungry to grab all the brands and introduce new product, PALM was the missing link that brought everyone together.

The next four years PALM was at Nehru Centre the expo venue in the heart of South Bombay. PALM was launched with Cinema India, its sister expo that focused on Cinema Surround Sound and Digital Cinema. PALM shifted to Nesco in 2005 expanding exhibitors and conference and seminars.

PALM growth was manifold on the exhibition floor with companies expanding their display, launching new brands each year. The global market heard of the buzz at PALM Expo and major brands came to witness the new rising market with the greatest potential.

The organizers actually allowed PALM to go wild during show dates. There was hedonistic ambience. PALM had music at the show, music instruments section, and artists converging to mix music with recording concepts and studio concepts. Live Sound set ups by exhibitors mixed music demos and multiple stages came up and invited leading talent to the show and bohemian atmosphere and hedonistic ambience electrified the market and hordes of visitors converged on PALM and in the frenzy trade exploded and imports exploded and distribution exploded and there was so much adrenalin that exhibitors left the expo after three days with crores worth of business and the professional community attending the expo grew to 25,000 no less, each one on a high after three days of innovative idea on all the latest tech experienced at the show.

In these years India's live sound and big stage acts action grew exponentially leading on sell-through sales of the top brands with big ticket budgets. PALM show rose to the moment:

   The Rise of the Line Array and Demo Qube was organic. The need and demand was to be satisfied.

Organically PALM transformed into multi-dimensional experiential trade expo event. The Live Arena, Line Array, and Demo Qube were tremendously successful in satisfying the needs of the trade, market, talent, and buyers- rental as well installed.

Rise of PALM over twenty years evidently was also the growth of big stage rental sound and the rise of the big recording studios in the early years to today the explosion of project studios and the show going quiet and disciplined and dedicated to show casing the latest technology and innovation in pro audio. Every segment is represented-pro audio, stage sound, studio sound, install sound, surround sound, residential sound, soundtrack, post-production, music production, AV, integrated systems, lighting, display, large screen, cinema screen, and other.

Communities identified with PALM and AV-ICN the concurrent expo belong to the world PALM and having journeyed with PALM these two decades, rather 22 years, naturally seek their achievements recognized and it is natural PALM does this.

PALM Awards are cherished and do justice to the efforts of the community. RISE of PALM over a 22 year journey is the RISE of the participants. PALM Sound and Light Awards, IRRA- Indian Recording Arts Awards, AV Architect of the Year Award and the selection of top 50 products and the true recognition platforms that are bespoke of PALM integrity towards its communities and markets. In this respect PALM has tirelessly fulfilled its responsibility, towards the industry and markets in publishing the industry magazine PALM Technology since 2001. All the global news and all new product info brought to Indian readers and PALM participants.

Pro Audio industry in India enjoys very high aspirations. They industry is ambitious and have a vision to go global with their products and brands. Manufacturing in India is non-competitive due to cost and absence of exports and brands. China imports will see a decline in the next two decades with the industry decreasing their dependency on China for Pro Audio and Lighting products. 20 years of Rise of PALM is now to witness the growth of manufacturing of product in all sectors in India in the next 20 years.
