AES 135th Convention
The 135th Convention was the place to be if you have anything to do with the audio industry. The exhibit floor, panels and technical sessions were packed all four days, and as AES celebrated its 65th Anniversary, a five-year-high number of 18,453 registrants was tallied. At show close, AES reported a 16% increase in registration since the last time the convention was in New York two years ago (131st AES) and a staggering 71% increase over last year’s San Francisco event (133rd AES), which unfortunately was plagued by smaller attendance due to Hurricane Sandy.
Convention Committee Chair Jim Anderson and his team created the most ambitious and comprehensive schedule of workshops, panels and technical programs in AES convention history. "I can't express how thrilled I am with our Convention this year,” stated Bob Moses, Executive Director of the AES. “Our organizing committee really outdid themselves, with over 250 presentations from an astounding 682 leading researchers and practitioners in the field, many of them standing-room only. The convention floor was absolutely packed, and the only complaint I heard was that we ran out of convention programs on the second day because so many people showed up. We took some risks with this show in an attempt to bring in lots of new blood and to maintain our position on the proverbial cutting edge, and the fact that it was such a fantastic success gives us confidence to ratchet it up a few more notches in Los Angeles next year. Actually, why wait for October 2014? – we'll be back in Berlin in April, and much of what made this show so great will be leveraged to breathe new life into our European convention."
