Over 40 of our students will be spending October 20th to October 23rd in New York to attend the AES Convention. For over 60 years, the AES has been the largest gathering of audio professionals and enthusiasts on the planet, attracting delegates from over 100 countries worldwide. Workshops, tutorials, technical papers and the exhibition floor provide attendees with a wealth of learning, networking and business opportunities.
“Expectations for the 131st AES Convention are particularly high this year,” reports committee chair Jim Anderson, “our team is making an extraordinary effort to create an unforgettable event.” This year’s attendees will find a wealth of stimulating, challenging, entertaining and informative Workshops, Tutorials, Papers, Master Classes, Technical Tours and Special Events designed to hone their skills and recharge their batteries. Guest speakers at these special events include music industry heavyweights Ben Folds, Phil Ramone, Tony Bennett, Steve Jordan, Bob Ludwig, Chris Lord-Alge and Steve Lillywhite.
Kenny Daultrey, a Professional Sound student at our Institute, had this to say about his excitement for the trip. “I’ve always been a huge fan of road trips, and to make this better, I am going to a place I have always wanted to go to. NYC is going to be a great experience not only for the reputation of the city, but for the AES Convention. This is going to be a great networking opportunity that I’ll be taking advantage of once I’ve graduated. This will definitely be an experience of a lifetime and 4 days of awesomeness!”
