Styl:us is back and once again Chester Group will present a show specially created for the legion of fans of music on vinyl.
On 18th - 19th March 2017 at The Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa, music lovers will be able to feast their passion for vinyl at the UK’s only dedicated analogue music event. With new and used vinyl for sale; turntables galore; hi-fi systems; artwork displays; seminars on turntable set up; live events; vinyl cleaning, listening sessions there will be something for everyone no matter what their relationship with vinyl.
Reacting to this revival in the purchase and enjoyment of music in its purest, analogue, form, The Chester Group, organisers of a number of established hi-fi shows around the world, came up with the idea for a vinyl focused event. Holding it in the London area - the heart of the nation’s music industry and the city where, in the 60's, the birth and rapid rise in popular musical culture occurred – seemed the obvious launch platform earlier this year.
That’s the single question that is continuously voiced by our wonderfully diverse and creative industry... how can we attract new and younger customers.
Well we now have part of the answer on a ‘platter’...Vinyl
Talk to various people in the industry and you do not get a defining reason why over the last couple of years there has been such a renaissance in this traditional music source: tactile, more attractive packaging, more collectable, different sound, retained value and so on.. but perhaps it’s simply down to one thing; it’s reassuringly different!
But whatever the reason the industry is now booming and along with all the other side show products and trends that support it; including turntables, headphones, valve amps, cables, retro fashion & clothing, arts and even retro engineered audio products, these are very exciting and refreshing times for us all.
So what better than a show ‘devoted’ to this tactile new medium and all that goes with it.

REACH THE YOUNGER GENERATION
Shows have never been more popular and with that, we are also seeing not only new, but a younger level of footfall taking an interest in the joy of high performance audio, and the quite amazing depth of quality over and above the more portable systems.
DIRECT EXPOSURE FOR THE INDUSTRY
As organisers, we're not in the business of shows for show’s sake; our goal is the long-term survival and growth of this unique and prestigious market, that needs fresh, high quality and direct exposure.
THE ORGANISERS FULL SUPPORT
Rest assured Chester Group will support the ‘Headline Act’ - you the exhibitor – along with the venue, the stage and the marketing/promotion package to enable you to deliver your best performance.
Styl:us North 2017 will take place from the 18th - 19th March at the The Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa. Located a block from Piccadilly train station.
You can have the best supported show in the land but if the choice of venue leaves visitors and exhibitors disappointed then the show will never excel. Access, style, facilities, service, scope, position and sound quality are critical factors when choosing a venue and last but not least long term stability.
Amenities include a casual steak restaurant and traditional lounge bar, plus a spa and high-tech gym. Business facilities include multiple meeting rooms and a dedicated conference suite.
