Shows still represent fantastic value for money when compared with other types of direct marketing, They are the only Media which allows face to face contact with potential customers and feedback. With never enough Dealers to go around, it’s vital for customers to have the opportunity to see and hear the latest equipment. Shows have survived all manner of challenges over the years, but to use a quote ‘if shows did not exist they would soon be invented.’ However they must move with the times and appeal to all ages and genre and that means the location and facilities must be a great inducement for everyone.
The 2015 New York Audio Show 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.
Westchester County is the fifth-wealthiest county in New York (after Nassau, Putnam, Suffolk, and Rockland Counties) and is the forty-seventh wealthiest county nationally. Westchester County ranks second after New York County in terms of highest median income per person, with a higher concentration of incomes in smaller households.
“Everytime we relocate the New York Audio Show the quality of attendees improves, that’s a fact. Hosting the show in Brooklyn again was an option but due to renovation, we simply could not find an appropriate in-city alternative.”
“Either the rooms were too small or had acoustic issues; or 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!”
“There was one more reason; we needed a slightly smaller higher quality boutique type show that could stand out from the rest, and we can do that now. A New York Show must stand out from the crowd.” Roy Bird, Chairman and founder of the UK based Chester Group
In 2007 the Chester Group moved its established show in the UK from London into the Counties. Just as we have now, there were concerns in the trade that this would be a bad move. It never was and this show is the only show in the UK which grows each year, and that’s down to it being a unique and pleasurable experience, for both exhibitors and visitors alike. We are confident this new business model will not only ensure new business for everybody but will prove to be one of the best locations to date. We hear time and time again from the trade ‘we want new business’ and it’s only by relocations and reaching new markets that this is achievable.
