USA - Under the banner Inspire, professional audio’s annual family reunion returned to New York City’s Javits Center for four October days where inspiration was abundant as leading audio innovators shared their knowledge and experience alongside gear designed to spark creativity and imagination while enhancing productivity.
“The programme rocked, and the exhibits were packed with people. Everyone was very excited to be there,” shares Agnieszka Roginska, AES New York 2019 co-chair and AES president-elect. “No time in AES’s history has seen a more diverse, innovative and forward-looking programme.” Convention co-chair and AES Secretary Valerie Tyler elaborates: “We expanded the comprehensive technical programme to include more genres, a broader range of new technologies and a wider breadth of voices than ever before.”
“We’re so proud of the team that came together to make this convention a reality,” adds Jonathan Wyner, the third of the Convention’s co-chairs. “From the technical program to the exhibition hall, the interests of every attendee were met. Expanded topics drew new attendees and let long-time attendees expand their horizons.”
More than 750 of professional audio’s leading innovators presented in the more than 330 sessions in the All Access Technical Programme and the 130 sessions on the Exhibition Hall’s Inspiration Stages and in its topical Theatres, alongside 236 exhibiting brands - was evident in the registration numbers, according to Colleen Harper, AES executive director.
“Registration for the Audio Engineering Society’s 147th International Pro Audio Convention again topped 14,000,” she says. “That includes a 20% increase in individuals opting for an all access badge for the full technical programme. The AES and our events are more relevant than ever to an industry where technology and its application are in a constant state of change.”
“Over the last few years,” says producer/engineer and AES New York 2019 presenter Warren Huart, “AES has actively been bringing in and cultivating young engineers. This year’s show was amazing testament to this. Plus, all the exhibitors brought their A-game. Everyone’s booths showed a massive range of products, and the diversity of modern and legacy products was the best it’s ever been. It was so gratifying to see the huge amount of innovation on display.”
