Florida Audio Expo to Debut in Tampa February 2019
The Florida Audio Expo announced its inaugural show set for February 8-10, 2019 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore. The show will offer music enthusiasts the opportunity to get up close with some of the audio industry's best and latest offerings—with no charge for entry.
In choosing the Embassy Suites, the Florida Audio Expo organizers actually made a very strategic decision. Originally built as condominiums, the building offers a luxury feel, but more importantly the living suites are acoustically isolated, making it an ideal host for an audio show. Additionally, the audio rooms, Marketplace, and headphone/personal audio demo suites will each feature display areas that include separate bedrooms and kitchens, which offers exhibitors the benefit of a multipurpose room—a unique alternative to typical hotel- or ballroom-style exhibitions.
“Our mission for creating the Florida Audio Expo was to bring a strong offering to the Southeast market with a fun atmosphere for enjoying music—we want to celebrate our lifestyle and support the industry in this region,” Bart Andeer, founder of Resolution Acoustics and manager of the Expo’s daily operations, said in a statement. “We have been working this idea for a few years, but wanted to find the right venue available at the right time of year, and we believe we have achieved both for the 2019 show. We strongly encourage regional dealers and manufacturers from all over the US who are looking for a new option.”
