123rd AES Convention Rousing Success

Publish date:

NEW YORK, NY-Audio professionals filled exhibitor booths, broadcast, educational, historical, live sound, master classes, panels, papers, special events, tutorials, and workshops in record numbers during the 123rd Audio Engineering Society Convention held in NYC's Jacob Javits Convention Center October 5-8. With 20,674 attendees visiting over 445 exhibits and having attended over 150 conference events, it was the largest AES Show in more than 10 years.

AES executive director Roger Furness remarked, "This show's attendance demonstrated the diversity of the audio industry. Engineers and producers walked the aisles alongside acclaimed design consultants, live sound engineers, and broadcasters, students, and musicians. AES is where advocates for improved audio meet, regardless of their area of specialty and professional status. This is exactly the unique, influential and powerful constituency that the AES is proud to represent."

123rd Convention committee chairman and AES president-elect, Jim Anderson, reported standing-room-only crowds at many of the special events. "The presentation by Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick commemorating the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was a particular highlight," he said. "With every seat filled and not a spare inch of leaning space, Emerick's blend of technical insights and personal observances of the Fab Four constructing their masterwork were unforgettable."
