The Audio Engineering Society has announced that Early Registration is now open for the 141st AES International Convention, which returns to the Los Angeles Convention Center from 29 September – 2 October.
Attendees are being urged to sign up now to take advantage of Early Registration pricing on multiple premium All Access options, which include the full Tech Program. Exhibits-Plus registration is free with advance registration, by using the promo code AES141NOW at checkout. Exhibits-Plus access includes the gear exhibition (29 September – 1 October), as well as the Project Studio Expo, Live Sound Expo and more.
Additionally, the first AES Conference on Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality (AVAR) will be co-located with the Convention on 30 September and 1 October. Student and AES Member discounts are available for the AVAR conference, as are packages that combine event registrations. Exclusive priority housing rates are also available for attendees of either event through the aesshow.com website.
Visitors to the Convention will get to hear from top engineers, producers and researchers over four days of Technical Program sessions, including Panels, Lectures, Workshops and Tutorials, while there will also be a three-day exhibition showcasing technology, hardware and software from leading manufacturers and service providers. The Exhibits-Plus registration option offers access to the Opening Ceremonies and Keynote and the annual Heyser lecture events, full exhibition access, as well as access to the training and information sessions on the exhibition area Live Sound Expo and Project Studio Expo stages, special event sessions, and more. An upgrade to the All Access badge offers all of this, along with four full days of exclusive in-depth Tech Program presentations, workshops, and tutorials, along with research papers and posters covering all things audio.
The Tech Program will this year encompass Recording and Production, Networked Audio, Broadcast and Streaming, Game Audio, Sound for Picture, Product Design, Sound Reinforcement, and much more.
“We’ve been hard at work on our return to Los Angeles since our last convention there in 2014, which set West Coast attendance records, and from which we continue to reap benefits in our AES E-Library archives and beyond,” stated AES executive director Bob Moses. “Our experienced co-chairs, Michael MacDonald and Valerie Tyler, have once again assembled an all-star convention committee to coordinate the technical program. Our exhibition floor and AES Expo events continue to grow in size and popularity.
"This year, we are working to extend these offerings to new potential attendees, students, and enthusiasts who have a desire to be part of the professional audio industry. Whether a life-long audio pro, or simply curious about the latest audio app on your phone, the AES conventions truly offer something for all levels and interests, and we encourage everyone to spread the word as we look towards AES LA.”
