The Audio Engineering Society (AES) fall convention and the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show will co-locate their 2021 conventions, with the AES Show slated for October 11–13 at the Westgate Hotel, adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center where NAB Show will be held October 9–13.
The AES fall convention was previously co-located with the NAB Show in New York at the Javits Convention Center annually in October from 2017–2019. The two events were held virtually in 2020.
“Our October co-location with NAB Show New York for the past few years has proven mutually beneficial for attendees and exhibitors alike,” says Colleen Harper, AES Executive Director. “We all miss the engagement and excitement of the in-person AES Show and look forward to once again interacting at the convention with professional audio manufacturers and our colleagues.”
NAB Executive VP of Conventions & Business Operations Chris Brown adds, “We’re excited to be building the most significant, in-person media and entertainment event of 2021 and are ready to bring the industry together once again at NAB Show in October. Together with AES, we will provide unparalleled access to critical information, inspiration and solutions for audio engineers and content creators.”
As previously announced, the 2021 NAB Show will also co-locate with the Radio Show as well as NAB’s Sales and Management Television Exchange.
