Default Car + Sound Sinsheim, Germany

Hi everyone,

As promised in our travelogue I want to share this year’s Car + Sound in Sinsheim with you!

Car + Sound is the leading international show for mobile electronics and takes place in Sinsheim/Germany for the last 15 years, this time from 10 – 13 April 2008. Here, you will find everything related to car-infotainment and car-entertainment and the “who is who” of the industry present their new product innovations and highlights. For all of you with greater interest, you can also look it up on Car + Sound - Internationale Leitmesse für mobile Elektronik - Messe Sinsheim - Startseite

As it is part of my job to keep up-to-date about our competitors as well he he (for all of those who don’t know it I work for the International Marketing department of Harman International, which is the mother company for brands such as JBL, Harman/kardon, Infinity and many many more) one of my colleagues and I drove to the exhibition centre and spent an afternoon diving through the hustle bustle – the LOUD hustle bustle lol – of the international car scene.

The good news is: of course, I had my camera with me! The bad news is: my batteries died almost in the beginning!
The good news again is that TheOne® was not willing to accept that and walked around shaking the batteries non-stop in order to keep them running, putting them back in the camera, do the desired click click click and YEAH, made it, lol. Though a couple of people were staring at this crazy behaviour (as I had to repeat it over and over again) I got what I wanted: my pictures for you guys on T-BHP. Some of them not the best as there was no time to do any camera adjustments before the batteries died again but all in all acceptable pictures that should leave you with a good impression of what you missed.

As I am not a car expert I will rather let the pictures talk for themselves from now on so I hope you will enjoy them. And I am pretty sure that not only the cars, their interior designs and all the technology but also the various hot chicks I caught with my camera will find your approval. So keep attention!

Okay, it will take a while – there was a lot to see and I took many pictures so I will start of with a few general first impressions of the exhibition!

Oh I like your general impression. Excellent. Keep them coming! I've never been to Sinsheim and I'd love to go someday.

We want to see all the cars, speakers and all the girls. Bring 'em on honey!

Default Harman International

Of course, Harman International was also present - how could we miss this show? My colleagues from Harman Germany put quite some effort into it, see for yourselves what they came up with!

And in case you are wondering what this chick on the last picture is doing, this is my colleague haha, who was doing a mock-imitation of our JBL and HK girls on the booth he he.

hama is a camera accessory company baba.


Guys please ya, don't encourage her. She thinks that if you shake the battery, it gets some power back. How embarrassing.
I've heard that if you warm up the pencil cell in your hands, you can take a picture or 2. But shaking? I'm shaking my head.

P.S. Jenny where are the other JBL girlie pictures? lol
