NAB NY + AES = 20,000 Attendees

Both conventions reported increases over last year’s turnout

The Audio Engineering Society says attendance to last month’s AES Show in New York grew 15% over the year before.

It reported about 8,100 registered attendees. Last year was the first physical show post-COVID.

Separately, NAB said the NAB Show New York, held concurrently with AES at the Javits Center, drew about 12,230, an increase of 28%.

The AES floor had 127 exhibitors while NAB had 270. The exhibit floors were separate but adjacent, with traffic moving between them via hallways.

“Last year’s AES convention and NAB Show New York shared an exhibition hall,” AES said in its summary. “This year, AES’s 20+% growth in the exhibitor count, and the resulting bigger footprint, pushed each group back into their own halls.”

The next AES International Convention will be held in Madrid, Spain, in June of next year. The NAB New York and AES Shows will return to the Javits Center in New York next October.
