For those of you who have become accustomed to checking my daily tidbits and missed them this year, I just wanted to let you know that I’m still alive, I did attend the conference, and I’ll have a report up later in the week. While I usually get to a couple of paper or panel sessions at AES, in the past I’ve spent most of my time with the exhibits, however this year, there were more than the usual number of technical sessions that I wanted to attend, so I spent more than my usual time “downstairs.”
The exhibit hall was very busy every day, and while only a couple of exhibitors had expansive displays, there was plenty to see – and some to not see, as there were a few regulars who were conspicuous by their absence. I suspect that at least some of them are anticipating a better than usual opportunity for showing their wares at the NAMM show and will be there in all their glory, since, with the NAMM-AES connection for the upcoming show, there will be a special (and new) exhibition area dedicated to audio and recording products. We’ll see.
