Members of the 134th AES Convention team in Rome
The 134th AES Convention was held from May 4 to May 7, 2013, at Rome’s Fontana di Trevi Conference Centre. Under the guidance of Convention Chair Umberto Zangheri, the Convention program presented attendees with the opportunity to discuss the issues that impact the vitality of the pro audio industry.
"Our 134th convention exceeded expectations in every way,” says AES executive director Bob Moses. “Our 4-day program of over 150 workshops, tutorials and roundtable discussions on digital cinema, loudness, spatial audio and other timely topics, packed our presentation rooms. In addition to a solid pro industry turnout, we attracted many enthusiastic students whose quest for information and mentors was palpable. Our sponsors were uniformly pleased with the new customers in attendance throughout the Convention. I feel confident that we are on a good path in Europe and look forward to expanding this new AES model in future years."
