say about the new event area:
We aim to make sound relevant in industries other than the usual ones by inspiring the industries that need sound in their products - and those that don't yet realise that they have a need. In addition, we must spread awareness of how strong Denmark is in the field of sound, states Peter Petersen, CEO of Sound Hub Denmark, and continues:
Our overall goal is to attract talent and knowledge workplaces to Denmark, and we see EOT as a good opportunity to bring more people here, unfold the sound and stimulate an even greater utilisation of the country's position of strength in sound. This can be done through more cross-sector partnerships, use of world-class facilities and ultimately a physical presence here in Denmark. Innovation, talent development and entrepreneurship, as well as learning communities are at the forefront of our minds.
- Peter Petersen, CEO in Sound Hub Denmark
The Wave highlights the Danish sound industry, which with 50,000 employees deserves a completely different level of attention than it is currently receiving. The industry accounts for four per cent of Danish exports and has an annual turnover of DKK 70 billion, while at the same time crying out for qualified manpower
This is why it is very important to create visibility and awareness of the industry and its many attractive jobs. And one of the purposes of The Wave is thus, as far as we are concerned, to clarify what the Danish sound industry is actually capable of. There is a high level of innovation - for instance, the technology used in Danish hearing aids is significantly more advanced than the technology used in many of the tech giants' products.
