New York, NY (October 16, 2014)—The Audio Engineering Society has released the final figures for the 137th AES Convention, held Thursday, October 9, 2014, through Sunday, October 12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California.
The annual convocation of all things pro audio garnered 15,403 registered attendees and 307 exhibitors/sponsors—numbers that helped AES137 surpass any West-Coast AES Convention in the last 10 years. At show close, AES reported a 28 percent increase in registration since the last time the convention was on the West Coast (133rd AES Convention in San Francisco in 2012).
"I cannot put into words how thrilled I am with the 137th AES Convention,” stated Bob Moses, Executive Director of the AES. “Our organizing committee really outdid themselves, with over 350 presentations from an astounding 731 leading researchers and practitioners in the field, many of them standing-room-only. We have some serious momentum built from recent conventions in New York and Berlin, and we are going to keep it going for the coming conventions in Warsaw in May and then back to New York next October. You could say that our conventions and the AES organization have a renewed energy, and we couldn’t be happier.”
