USA - The Audio Engineering Society has declared October 2020 the Audio Engineering Month as the organisation expands its traditional autumn convention technical programme and exhibition showcase into the virtual realm, offering ultimate accessibility to the global audio engineering community.
Comprising four weeks packed with audio presentations and activities - from 6 October to 30 October, the AES Show Fall 2020 Professional Audio Convention offers a full technical programme access featuring live and on-demand content, student and career activities, engagement with peers and audio luminaries, the audio hardware and software product showcase and special events throughout the month.
Early Bird rates are $99 for AES members and $224 for non-members - the latter including one year of AES membership. Registration is open now at AESShow.com.
“Expanding the convention offerings across a full month answers one of the biggest questions raised by attendees in the past when faced with hundreds of compelling sessions packed into just four days: ‘How do I choose?’,” says AES Show Fall 2020 Convention co-chair Jonathan Wyner. “Applying lessons learned from AES’s first online Convention experience with the highly successful AES Virtual Vienna, we are extending the timeline to provide our ‘attendees’ the opportunity to dive deeper into the program and explore new topics.
“Plus, we have some exciting and innovative new programming. A virtual event allows us to take attendees places they have never been. It also means that you will be able to see and hear presenters up close and personal as never before. All attendees will have the best seat in the house!”
“With all the online content, the convention can now be experienced by anyone in the world that has an internet connection,” adds convention co-chair Valerie Tyler. “Combined with lowered registration fees, and without the necessity of travel costs and logistics, the 2020 AES Show will be the most accessible ever.”
The third convention co-chair, Paul Womack, adds, “It’s our goal, and my personal passion, to encourage diversity in our attendees. New voices and topics during the last several AES Conventions have broadened our attendee base. Now, we’re taking the convention directly to everyone everywhere. That can only build on our progress - there’s infinite room under the umbrella.”
The AES Show ProductLaunch will allow attendees to see the latest gear from leading companies through video-based product launches and live engagement with product specialists and company personnel. Taking advantage of the virtual platform, the AES Show TechTours will feature The Seven Wonders of the Audio World - a series of in-depth tours of legendary studios across the globe.
Student and career offerings have been expanded into the AES Show Student Week - which will feature seven days of activities including workshops, recording critique sessions, recording and design competitions, a Career & Education Fair, mentoring sessions and more.
