The Audio Engineering Society (AES) East Coast convention in 2017 will be co-located with NAB Show New York at the Javits Convention Center in New York City. The AES annual fall US Convention will be held October 18-21, and NAB Show New York will be held October 18-19, 2017. According to the groups, “the adjacent location of these events creates the most comprehensive and largest media and entertainment event held on the East Coast with over 600 exhibitors.”
“Audio is the expertise of the AES, and NAB Show New York highlights expertise in video and content distribution. For today’s media professionals, it makes perfect sense for these two events to take place side by side, complementing each other’s missions, benefiting each other’s memberships and increasing the opportunities for all attendees,” said Bob Moses, AES Executive Director.
NAB Show New York showcases technology for media, entertainment and telecom professionals, with conferences and workshops focused on television, film, satellite, online video, live events, corporate AV, production and post. In 2015, the event hosted more than 7200 attendees and 300 exhibitors.
AES’ annual conventions include workshops, tutorials and technical papers. The 2015 event in New York had nearly 18,500 registrants and 300 audio-centric exhibitors.
InfoComm Connections held a half-day program in conjunction with NAB Show New York in 2016. According to an InfoComm spokesperson, InfoComm has not firmed up its 2017 programs at this time.
