The Audio Engineering Society has named Martin Porter Associates Business Development Consultant in charge of attendee marketing and exhibit sales for the 119th AES Convention & Pro Audio Expo in New York, October 7 to 10, 2005.
“As the world’s largest, dedicated Pro Audio convention, we are planning an aggressive marketing and sales initiative this year to make our New York event the biggest and most effective for our attendees, exhibitors and our Society,” says Roger Furness, AES executive director. With almost 300 exhibitors already signed up, this year’s convention, themed Where Audio Comes Alive, is expected to be one of the largest in AES History.
To meet the demands of technology developments in home recording, music technologies, sound reinforcement/systems and broadcast audio, the AES Program Committee is developing an entirely new and relevant line-up of conferences, workshops and tours that will attract large numbers of new, end-users and dealers to the show this year.
For the first time, dedicated on-the-floor pavilions for sound reinforcement, music technologies, DJ, house-of-worship, and car audio are being planned. And, as part of the show’s marketing efforts, Martin Porter Associates will be reaching out to a range of new media and trade organizations to attract even greater numbers of customers and conference attendees.
