“Our Convention Committees have already begun the year-long process of developing both these major 2011 events.  The call for papers has been posted for the London Convention, and NY Convention Chair Jim Anderson meets this week with our Committee here to begin plans for October,” Furness adds. 

 “Fortunately, many of our long-time Chairs have returned to the fold.  The benefit of their skills and knowledge in insuring an outstanding convention experience is incalculable.  We are confident that 2011 will bring the professional audio industry continued growth,” Furness concludes. “We wish our members, attendees and exhibitors a happy and healthy holiday and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
