“Including many familiar faces from the team behind the highly-successful 2014 AES Convention in L.A., we have once again assembled a team well-suited, in each of their disciplines, to oversee the 141st Convention,” says 139th and 141st AES Convention Co-chair Michael MacDonald. “With the momentum that was developed with our last L.A. Convention, as well as other recent AES Conventions and Conferences around the world, we are poised to build upon, and enhance, some of our already popular mainstays at the show, as well as add some new opportunities for attendees. We’ve set the course, and look forward to seeing everyone in September!”
