San Francisco (August 17, 2004)–Returning to SF for the first time since 1998, the 117th Audio Engineering Society “Art Of Audio” themed convention will grace the Moscone Convention Center, Oct. 28 – 31, 2004. AES executive director Roger Furness reports that an outstanding series of Tutorials, Workshops, Papers, Exhibits and Special Events has been developed by, “one of the most dedicated and highly professional Convention Committees in our history.”
Chaired by John Strawn, the all-volunteer committee began meeting in late 2003, to coordinate the diverse programs, which make the four-day convention a perennial must-attend event for thousands of international audio industry professionals.
“There are no honorary AES Convention Committee members,” Furness said. “Each Chairperson is committed to fulfilling the demands of their post. Historically, the results of this labor-intensive process have been extremely gratifying to attendees. The 117th Committee is comprised of a special team of Audio Industry professionals. Their energy and dedication assure us of an extraordinary event.”
