THE NEW YORK AUDIO SHOW ‘24

ITS FUTURE

Immediate release

Yes, we’ve been very quiet – and we regret that, but for good reason.

We have made the decision to remodel this long standing and successful show; one of the very best for doing business each year, due to its high quality and valued Visitors, exhibitors and of course trade and press attendance.

There is simply no way that this show can be continuously hosted in Manhattan, due to extremely high venue costs, unworkable venue guarantees, demanding unions, and yes high attendance costs for both exhibitors and visitors.

The New York Audio Show will become a smaller, more bespoke type of event and will be limited initially to 30 market leading brands; it will be held outside of Manhattan at a Venue that has ample free parking, great ambience, and greatly improved accessibility for everyone involved, and yes and most importantly a cross section of room sizes.

We have several venues shortlisted at present, hence why we’ve been quiet, and we will announce our choice in July, together with a new date which will be shared with all the outstanding Exhibitor enquiries* we have had for this year’s show, as we intend to make this event one in which Exhibitors have a direct engagement, as we intend to make it more of an alliance

*We are also taking on board many of the overwhelming and constructive comments we’ve received from Visitors as well, our Early Bird ticketing will be extended, via pre-registration, meet and greet staffing with an ongoing buffet, and where Exhibitors agree we will encourage them to undertake timed demonstrations throughout the 2 days . . . in other words a more organized, sophisticated and visitor focused experience, definitely not your average ‘HiFi’ show; hence why we are taking our time with the final choice of Venue, as they must also be supportive long term for the New York Audio Show.

The US already has a major show in the form of AXPONA; there are also many regional shows, that sit behind that and our top table event, in the greatest City in the world: and uniquely how this show will also be in the form of an alliance with its Exhibitors so ensuring shared and joint objectives

By changing things, the reputation of the New York Audio show will be further enhanced, as it continues uniquely to attract ‘show buyers’ and to achieve that, we must constantly be aware of the need to move with the times and the incentives to buy.

As with all our shows we will continue to partner with Stereonet International who share exactly the same ambitions as us.

Whatever your interest in this show we welcome feedback.
