JBL’s 75th Anniversary Event

HARMAN recently celebrated the 75th anniversary of JBL, and it was awesome to join them to celebrate this important milestone of one of the most iconic audio brands in the world! Streamed from the HARMAN Experience Store in Munich, Germany, I was thrilled to moderate JBL’s 75th Anniversary Event which explored how JBL has revolutionized high-quality audio for 75 years, and what is in store for the future.

We were honored to welcome Michael Mauser, the CEO of HARMAN, for an inspiring keynote speech, and then we unveiled some fascinating and fun new consumer research which has been led by JBL, looking at iconic moments in pop culture and the impact of music on these key points in history.

Next, I spoke with some of the leading experts from across HARMAN’s audio divisions – Consumer, Automotive, Professional, and Luxury. Katy Templeman-Holmes, Dorothee de Backer, and Armin Prommersberger shared some unique insights into how JBL has brought to life some of the world’s greatest moments in pop culture. It was a timely deep-dive in the collaboration between the divisions, and how this enables JBL to define the cutting edge of audio technology while it continues to shape and enhance every moment people spend listening with its leading products and technologies.
