— 140th AES International Convention sees remarkable registration and participation growth for Europe’s largest pro audio event of the year —
New York, NY — The audio industry recently celebrated all things audio at the Audio Engineering Society 140th International Convention, held June 4 through June 7 at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, France. With a 61% increase in attendee preregistration and a doubling of the exhibiting brands, AES Paris was 2016’s largest professional audio event.
From the Opening Ceremonies, including Awards presentations and a keynote address by President Elect of the AES, Alex U. Case, through the core AES convention fare of technical research papers, workshops and tutorials, the four days of the convention were packed full of opportunities to listen, learn and connect. Additionally, during the opening ceremonies, AES announced that the AES Europe convention will return to Berlin, Germany, in 2017 for the 142nd Convention and exhibition.
Traditional AES convention program elements, such as the Richard C. Heyser Memorial Lecture (presented this year by distinguished researcher and new AES Fellow, Dr. Rozenn Nicol), the Student Delegate Assembly activities, career and education fairs and student recording and design competitions, were accompanied by new opportunities for attendees such as the Professional Sound Expo (PSE) and the Audio Projections multi-format listening experience series.
The Convention technical program included over one hundred presentations of technical research papers on a wide range of the latest advances in pro audio technology, measurement, practice and applications. The preprints of these presentations are available as part of the AES E-Library collection of exclusive documents and media; the AES E-Library is the world’s largest repository of professional audio research and development.
