New York, New York, March 23, 2015 – The Chester Group today announced their fourth edition of the New York Audio Show. The new venue will be the Hilton Westchester Hotel in Rye Brook, New York. Dates will be Friday through Sunday, November 6-8, 2015.
Roy Bird, Chairman and founder of the UK based Chester Group had this to say: “Some may be surprised that after three previous years in New York City we have moved to Westchester. Upon finding that our last venue in Brooklyn would not be available due to renovation, we simply could not find an appropriate in-city alternative.” Bird continued, “Either the rooms were too small or had acoustic issues; the hotel was not receptive to a show; logistics and costs would be a nightmare; or other issues would not offer our exhibitors and attendees the favorable experience that we deem necessary for a successful show.”
The venue is the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, Westchester County. The hotel is situated on 37 acres of beautifully landscaped woodland, and has 445 newly refreshed guest rooms and suites offering panoramic views of lush gardens. This resort-like hotel is located six miles east of White Plains, NY, eight miles from Westchester County Airport and 25 miles from New York City. The Rye train Station is on the Metro-North Harlem line, a short 30-45 minutes from Grand Central station.
The show will feature an increased amount of demo rooms featuring a superb selection of the world’s best HiFi & AV systems. A much larger HeadZone™ headphone and portable audio area will be a major draw of the show. There will be a full schedule of seminars, panels and demonstrations featuring some of the top personalities and designers from the audio community. Live music and other events to be announced.
