maintenance-timeWe're currently updating the website for our 2014 shows, please expect some downtime and layout changes over the coming weeks. If you would like further details about any of our events please contact us using the details below. Thank you for you support, and we look forward to another great year of shows. 

We're in the process of developing a new website and have chosen a Manchester based company to work with. We're very excited about the project which aims to benefit visitors, exhibitors and the industry in whole. Here's a few words from Club Studio;

"When Chester Group approached us to develop their new website, we saw the opportunity to reinvent the way that users interact with their brand online.

"Our aim is to clearly communicate the company and promote the brilliant shows that they organise. Here at Club Studio, we’ve reworked the way that users navigate the site and organised information into defined, organised pages. The redesign ensures that everyone has access to all relevant information while capturing the innovative and exciting energy that the shows provide.

"We’re confident that the resulting website will prove to be an essential resource for all who use it and we can’t wait for you to see it!"

LONG TERM COMMITMENT: The Chester Group are very pleased to announce that their
presence in North America is to be further strengthened. Following a very successful 2nd New York Audio Show
last year, and constructive discussions with Michel and Sarah of the Montreal Hi-Fi Show, their show will now
come under Chester’s ownership.

AUDIO WORLD is now in its 14th appearance, and has been enthusiastically serving the Audio Industry since its launch way back in 2001 at the Renaissance Hotel at Heathrow. And its objectives have never changed, and why should they, except for one thing: it now tours the country with its message. It’s been to the North West several times, the North East, Scotland, London and now the South Coast. And all for one single reason: to develop new markets for the trade, particularly those new small to medium sized companies looking to gain a foothold in the increasingly dynamic Audio industry.

We look forward to 2014, meeting both existing and new friends in the industry and continuing to play our important part in ensuring the growth and expansion of high quality audio to all age groups, and all interests.

Following its enthusiastic reception and launch in 2012, and considerable growth in 2013 the NEW YORK AUDIO SHOW will now move to Brooklyn for 2014 at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge.

As North America’s premier East Coast show it has to remain at the top of its game and strive to reach and please new markets for both visitors and exhibitors alike. The move has had a tremendously enthusiastic response from the industry and its new dates; September 26th - 28th 2014, were chosen to avoid conflicts with other shows.

Besides being the 4th largest city in the US, Brooklyn is a really hip community – young affluent consumers are flocking to neighbourhoods such as Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg, DUMBO, Cobble Hill, Fort Greene, Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill & Park Slope. The revitalization of downtown Brooklyn via the new Barclays Center has also made the area a major destination with new retail shops, restaurants, and at least 8 MTA subway stations within walking distance of the hotel. And Brooklyn has never had an Audio Show. And this will be the first audio show in Brooklyn.

The New York Show section of the website is currently being produced, and Tickets sales will commence in the coming months!  So Bookmark this page, LIKE us on Facebook and Follow us on Twitter to get all the latest News and Updates.

No sooner than we start (sadly) the show is over, and as we write this quick post show report all our exhibitors and partners are busy preparing for return home, but in the knowledge of a job very well done. We’ve just enjoyed three very busy days in Melbourne, our third show in Australia, and what a wonderful and top quality cross section of visitors we met, with many of them young and new to shows like this.

The Australian Audio & AV Show goes from strength to strength, and that is due to the huge enthusiasm of our visitors and the commitment of exhibitors. We look forward to delivering another great ‘Chester Group’ event in 2014 and working once again with all our great partners.

The weather’s been great, the car parks packed and the visitors flowed in, on both show days. Proof once again that ‘Whittlebury’ and the National Audio Show, really delivers. A great venue in a great setting that sets the scene each year for the National Audio Show, the only independently organised event in the UK. Attendance ‘ even as we post this news item, is up 25% on 2012. And two very significant features this year, the substantial increase in the new younger visitors to the show and the amount of weekend tickets sold. With over 25% of rooms already sold for 2014 this has to be the most looked forward to, event for Audio enthusiast. Dates for 2014 and 2015 are already held.

What a great show, thanks to everyone who exhibited and visited, making this one of our most successful events with such a diverse range of attendees, something which this great industry needs. So we’ve proved that if you provide the right entertainments, the right setting and date and reach out to new audiences there is massive interest out there to be energised.
