The entire AES Virtual Vienna Convention will remain online through 30 June, 2020, for those currently registered, and registration (for as low as $50) will remain open through that time for anyone wishing enjoy the AES Virtual Vienna Convention on their own time, online at
In addition to more than a hundred on-demand Papers Sessions, Engineering Briefs, Posters, Technical Tours, Workshops, Tutorials and more, AES Virtual Vienna featured the most popular events of all AES conventions, including Keynote speeches, a Heyser Presentation, the Opening Ceremony and Awards presentations.
Core Student and Career Convention events also took place, including meetings of the AES Student Delegate Assembly, Recording Critiques, Recording and Design Competitions and even an interactive Education and Career Fair.
AES Virtual Vienna partners and sponsors, including platinum partner Genelec, silver partners Proactive Audio, Sound Solutions International and USound, and partners Austrian Audio and Focusrite Pro, also took advantage of the online opportunity to present products and technologies to attendees and take part in Virtual Vienna presentations.
