Yes! The world's largest pro audio end-user event returns to New York in October 2019, for the 147th International AES Convention. Building on successes in New York the last few years, the Exhibition floor is poised for outstanding end-user contact.

Drawing additional attendees into the Exhibition hall, the exhibit-floor stages of the Live Sound Expo and the Project Studio Expo are proven to increase exhibits area traffic. In addition, new stages and events are being launched to further draw attendees to the Exhibition hall - the Broadcast Audio Expo and Broadway Sound Expo, a new software@aes Pavilion, an Audio 4 VR Pavilion, and a series of Mix with the Masters Mixing Workshops.

High visibility and high performance sponsorship opportunities are available for the Convention, track sessions and the Exhibits-area events. These sponsorships offer unparalleled advertising and branding benefits.

We are currently negotiating discounted rates with a number of local hotels - check back soon!

Our app for AES New York 2019 is still being finalized, but yes - we'll definitely have one!
