The 25th International Fireworks Competition will end on 19 September with a show by Göteborgs FyrverkeriFabrik.
The Swedish company was founded in 1994 by former rivals Martin Hildeberg and Anders Hållinder and is meanwhile the largest fireworks display company in the whole of Scandinavia. Martin Hildeberg has been sole proprietor of GöteborgsFyrverkeriFabrik since 2013.
Hildeberg, his team and the way in which he presents his fireworks are already familiar and much loved in Hannover: the Swedish artists have already won the International Fireworks Competition on four occasions (2002, 2003, 2004, and 2010). Other placements include second prize at the Pyronale in Berlin (2012) and first prize at the Knokke-Heist Festival in Belgium (2007). The Swedish pyrotechnic artists are also highly successful in their home country and finished in first place in the Swedish Championships of Pyromusicals every single year from 2002 to 2011. The talented pyrotechnicians are already making preparations for the 25th International Fireworks Competition, when they hope to rank amongst the finalists once again.
