The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center of New York

Audio Engineering Society Executive Director Roger Furness has announced that the 130th AES Convention will be held in the Novotel London West Convention Centre, from Friday, May 13 through Monday, May 16. The 131st Convention is confirmed for New York City’s Jacob Javits Center, from Thursday, October 20, through Sunday, October 23.

“Extraordinarily positive attendee and exhibitor feedback confirmed the success of our 129th Convention in San Francisco this past November,” Furness says. “We received high marks on all levels, technical, social and organizational. A palpable sense of optimism permeated the entire event.

“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 New York Convention Chair Jim Anderson meets this week with our Committee here to begin plans for October.

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